Heh. What interests me more about the system is the moisture trap. If that thing doesn't work without a P-lip or the tenon extension, I guess I'm better off passing on a Pete.

The system as a whole P-Lip and all it's parts are working very well for me. But I'm still a bit new to this pastime so haven't developed any preferences either way for pipe designs.

This is the only pipe I have ever owned that has passed the "day at the office" test solo.I'm a local truck driver (grain, rock, sand,,, your basic long dump work). I really don't have alot of time to fiddle with pipe cleaners or carrying around 5-6 pipes to get me though the day. I put 4 bowls of 1-Q, 1 bowl of Vanilla Custard and 1 Irish flake through the Pete today without a single problem.When I got home I pulled the stem off, ran a couple pipe cleaners through it and 1 down the stem.The stem was for the most part clean. The "gook" stayed in the well like it was supposed to.

I look at my new Pete system as a working mans pipe.It's usable all day long and with little fuss. That's what I was looking for and I found it with this particular model Pete. I do have a Savinelli Churchwarden 921, a few cobs, and a little nosewarmer I got in a starter kit from pipesandcigars about a week or so ago.but I'm going to save those for when I have more time spend with it.

I tell ya Mr. David, in your shoes I might keep two or three cobs in the truck. You can beat the h**l out of ‘em, let ‘em cool for a minute and load ‘em right back up, run a quick bristled around the bowl, throw ‘em in the glovebox, leave ‘em on the seat, etc. And no big if you lose one or wear it out and toss it.

Just spitballing!

/cheers

all other systems beside the spigot have a tenon extension.. even a standard system. It's part of the stem.

cobs are OK but burn up inside and you're smoking corn cob and plaster and wood dowel no matter how you look at it.
also they are not very robust.

I don't think they're bad that way just kind of fragile and doesn't give the same smoke as a briar.

See what I mean? That's gunk after several scrubbings. I eventually gave up. But if I had continued, I'da kept getting gunk out till the trouts came home.

Now, a briar pipe after only 2-3 scrubbings with the paper towel:

Goodness! I’ve got cobs I bought back in ‘07 that are still great smokers to this day — still in use. YMMV I guess. I stand by my cob advice :)

I have 3 Peterson P-lip system pipes and I love them. Since I wear dentures, the P-lip directs the smoke to the roof of my mouth and not my tongue which results in a cooler smoke.
