Was really interested to buy the smooth 106, but £190 is a bit too expensive for me. the rusticated costs 120, and the sandblasted 145. Quite sad, but 100 is my limit, otherwise I just see it as a waste of money, especially when you're currently unemployed hahaha. Edit: Rusticated costs 107, actually, but I don't really like rusticated ones.

Green dye tends to turn brown from being exposed to heat. I guess that’s just the nature of green dye.

I think over the years they tried different types of finishes, but it didn’t resolve the problem.

I stripped a 2018 106 and re-dyed it myself. It’s developing some light brown on the rim, but I can re-stain it if I want…

The only green pipe I’ve seen hold it’s color is the Venturi…

Yes. My 2015 St Pats has a couple brown spots.

While the rusticated price is fair, overall I think the prices are too high for what you get with these.

Am l the only one that doesnt like these? I dont find the band attractive.
While I can appreciate the throw back to the original band, Im not a huge fan of the 2023 band.
In my opinion 2023s pipe is way better looking than last year, but I think 2017 had the coolest band and the pattern on the 2015 bowls was pretty cool.
