    Why Savinelli?

    I am with chasing here, no filter no adaptor. Love the open draw. Savs are inexpensive, great smokers. I wish they would have been suggested to me when I started.

    PAD Conundrum -- No Answer Here

    "and need no pipes." SLOWLY, back away from the keyboard, take a deep breath and come back to reality... Cut the grass then order the pipe, all will then be right with the earth... Did I really NEED my third Pete System 303?
