I have been trying to buy a new pipe with a 9mm filter. I have been smoking pipes for years and NEVER with a filter. So trying to save money I purchased a Peterson-phoenix-05-rusticated-fishtail 9mm from the Pipe Nook, $88, it has to be the worst pipe I have ever had. The briar has no weight to it, feels like balsa wood, smokes so hot I can hardly hold it no matter how slowly I smoke. The bowl is very thin., my fault for not being more careful before pulling the trigger.
That being said could anyone recommend a thick bowel 9mm filtered briar pipe in a low price range.

These are 2 pipe brands that have many 9mm pipes in their selection. And seem in the price range you’re after. Good luck and hope you find a nice pipe!

You could get a insert to replacement of the 9mm filter to draw easier. Also get to build some cake to help to "insulation" from heat. Drier tobacco may help to reduce the heat too. Good luck!

I believe Molina pipes take 9mm filters and are nicely priced. I have couple and they both seem to smoke very good. It's unfortunate you are problems with your peterson, I have mostly Petersons and love them all.

I also have mostly Peterson, older ones, this one is not even close. Like the world I'm living in nothing is the same. Thank You

I have several Petes and like them all, however, I did order a Jeckel and Hyde last year from Iwin Reiss and it was awful. Smoked so hot after 5 minutes I couldn't even hold onto it. Sent it back to them and they gave me store credit. Bought a Vauen and an Aldo Velani for the same price plus a tin of tobacco. 2 for the price of 1 so I came out ahead.

What great service from Iwin Reiss !!!,
This is a Peterson phoenix, made for, and sold only by the pipenook, so maybe not their top quality Peterson.
I am a cheap old fart, never learning you get what you pay for. To bad a great looking pipe does NOT = a great smoking pipe.

I think a a lot of Savinellis are fitted for a balsa filter insert. I've been fond of the Savinellis I've had over the years. Good pipes.
