One of those things I didn't like the look of a couple of years ago and now that I acquired a few it just seems "normal". I assume it isn't considered a deluxe system without it? Now I can read and view on the laptop instead of on my phone in the wee, bleary eyed hours, I see the "scaled down" aspect vs. the original in terms of the stem, with the BC, and to me, that is huge plus, IMO.I'm just not that big a fan of the wear-gap stem. I know, blasphemy. I can feel you all throwing your empty tobacco tins at me, stop it!)
Enjoying it right now! It’s a filter and without the filter the draw is effortless!I got the email. I pre-ordered one.
Last year I ordered one and after it arrived another PPN popped up on SPC on the "Fresh pipe" list. I immediately snatched it up. Having two, I sold one to a fellow Pete Geek (a great guy) here on the forum for what I paid. I knew he missed out on the pre-order.
Oh man if they just offered this again in a different stain that would’ve been an easy win. I don’t think the 5 is similar in shape to the pub; I find the pub far nicer.
That is the pipe that started my love affair with the 9/307 and it gets smoked a lot. But it’s very hard to pick just one out of the lot. With the exception of the unsmoked 0 because I’ve never smoked it, there isn’t a bum smoker in the bunch. They all smoke fantastically, but the one I smoke the absolute most is the XL307 with the fat flair on the stem. Don’t know why, I just do. But the dark 9BC is probably the most pleasant to hold, it just has a great hand feel. It’s a very tactile pipe, and it’s not too bad to look at either.Oort that is a lovely photo of some lovely pipes. I’m guessing that the dark 9BC is the favorite because of its positioning (at least it’s my favorite of your set).
Lovely collection. Shame you photographed them with a pair of your undies as the background
Dark 9BC is obviously #1 but that dark 999 is definitely giving it a run for it’s money!
