Ladies and Gentlemen the time has come to start thinking about the BoB Forum Pipe of the Year for 2013.

We all know from listening to the Pipes Magazine radio show that there is a press right now in the pipe making industry and makers are unable to keep up with the demands of the market. We are also very aware that Brian Levine is a stand up guy who represents the US market for Brigham pipes. For those who have not looked into the Brigham System pipes they can be viewed at http://www.brighampipes.com/2006%20Update.htm  Unlike most filtered pipes the Brigham filters can be rinsed and reused multiple times.

Last years Tinsky pipes were great, however for this year we would like to see even more people able to post pictures of them enjoying the official BoB Forum pipe around as they travel around the world, country, back yard, mowing the lawn or whatever your cup of tea is. This years pipe will be right kept right about or just a little bit North of the ONE-hundred dollar line. To make this happen though we do need to narrow down a finish and shape of the pipes between what you will find below. We have a poll question open and would love for everyone here to post their choice for this years pipe. And without further adieu this years beauty contestants:


Brigham Shape 16- Chinook


Brigham Shape 16- Heritage

Brigham Shape 84- Chinook


Brigham Shape 84- Heritage

Brigham Shape 29- Chinook


Brigham Shape 29- Heritage

Brigham Shape 426- Chinook


Brigham Shape 426- Heritage


Please cast your vote above and let us know your opinion. The poll is open for 30 days.

Yep the ball is rolling. Brian and Brigham seem very eager and happy to work with us, but we need forum member approval and everyone to be happy to move forward.

Very cool. I replaced a stem on a Brigham pipe a few months ago for a friend, and it looked like it was a really nice pipe, well drilled, good grain and so on.

I'm genuinely surprised y'all are more interested in the rusticated than the smooth finish.

Sandblasted, Kaiser. Big difference!

Maybe would could narrow it down to the shape and leave the finish (smooth or blast) up to each member?

Sure, I'm in. But I want it to be the Brigham Shape 426- Heritage. Laughing

But seeing as how it has an early lead in the poll, I guess the Shape 29- Chinook would work too. Cool

I can ask about that, but the initial suggestion was to narrow it down to one so that the retailer doesn't end up with butt loads of extras lying around. For now let's try to get it down to one and if we can work the finish option we will.

A decent sandblast beats even a fairly well done smooth! That shape is well executed too, looks like the Kaywoodie 13B, a Dunhill Banker/Prince looking kind of thing.

Anyone who doesn't know exactly what the Brigham filter system is about, this video will explain it better than any written dialogue could. I'm not at all a filter guy, but these don't worry me at all.

Thanks PuffDaddy!

I don't have a blasted finish pipe, so that is more interesting to me.

That's because we're a pretty rough bunch. You should'a known that by now. Laughing

Of these selections, #29 looks best blasted (Chinook), and #426 looks best smooth (Heritage).

The rest I'm "meh" about.

Cool

Guess I'll be the wet blanket here.

These are all nice enough looking pipes. But they lack the wow factor for me and just don't have the appeal like the Tinsky last year.

I'm sure Brigham makes a nice pipe and have read good things, but I'm going to sit this one out.


Cheers,

RR

after looking at them some more, I'm going to have to agree with Brewdude. I canceled my vote.

Weenies Laughing

It's a hunnert dollar pipe, that's the point. Biggest complaint with the Tinsky pipe? Too many said they couldn't afford it. Lets not compare apples and oranges, this is a good affordable pipe for the brothers who wanted a good affordable pipe.

Do you know that most manufacturers of good affordable pipes aren't interested in messing with us for 20 or 30 pipes that are just more work for no more revenue? True, we looked.

Lets not start a "Why this?" Or "Not good enough" thing here. If you don't want in just leave it alone.

Puff daddy, I wasn't trying to do either. Just stating a position.

Sorry if I offended.

No problem with the pipe.
