    I just received two new pipes. I clench, and I've found heavyer pipes to be uncomfortable. These two should do. The first is a Stanwell bamboo. L: 135 mm, W: 22 g. The second is a Dagner dublin of his motorcycle inspired series. L: 122 mm, W: 28 g. Chamber sizes on both are 18 by 35-36 mm or a nice size 3. I have smoked both today and am very pleased so far. The mouthpieces fit me very well and they are so light I can hardly feel them.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Nice selections. They should make your jaw happier. Enjoy!

    Nice pipes! I also clench and find even the slightest weight difference between pipes makes a difference to my mouth.

    Nice acquisitions, esp. the Stanwell! I'm almost always clenching, and I find a flatter bit and even 1/8 bend make all the difference in clenching comfort.

    Very nice, I don't recall seeing many Stanwell pipes with bamboo. Sweet smokes.

    Congratulations on your new clenchers.
    Someday I’ll find a nice light briar, too.
    For now, my MM Rob Roy pipes are my favorite clenchers.

    Nice pipes.

    I'm a clencher too and also have a preference for shorter, lighter pipes. 5" or less and sub 40g but ideally around 30g makes for an ideal clencher IMO

    These smaller chambered pipes work really well for me. My teeth are happy and my virginias seem to like them too. My pipes are also very flattered by your comments. Esp. the Stanwell

    The Dagner looks like it has a carbon fiber band! Very nice pipes!

    I find that flake (or plug, coin, rope) in a small pipe will often give a full-length smoke. Handsome pipes.
