    Polishing Stems

    ^same,(i don't sand though) dremel with a buffing wheel and 'mothers' mag wheel polish which is probably highly toxic, then apply a 50/50 bees/carnuba wax. Have to be careful with the dremel though as its easy to slip off and gouge up the finish on your pipe with the shaft of the buffing wheel.

    Who is your favorite blender?

    Samuel G. I hate the way they pack there flakes, paying for water etc, but i cant stop buying them. Then probably Orlik, covers quite a large spectrum.

    Beat P's 2

    They look good to me, i would smoke em. Looks don't matter with pete's. They are tools used to smoke tobacco and good at what they do. No fluff. Why would one want to do that?

    best navy flake?

    I like SG navy flake, the addition of a small amount of latakia is a nice touch. The rum topping doesn't really smell like rum to me though.

    Just had My First Bowl of Haddos Delight

    1792 is medium imo, but in saying that i also consider irish flake medium. Irish rope on the other hand is satisfactory to my dulled sensitivity(Do not find it pleasant tasting) of nicotine. Just wish i could find a nice English blend that can hit the sides, and no night cap doesn't do it... :(
