Been doing a lot of reading and searching about pipes, with the aim of picking up a better pipe for myself, since it looks like I'm sticking with this hobby.
Based on my favorite pipe being a MM Elf Cobbit (7.5" long) I think I just prefer a longer pipe for a cooler smoke. It seems to make a big difference.
So I'm looking at the Savinelli Bings and Clark's. The Clark is the same length as the Elf, but some comments say it's too small. The Bing is shorter (6.3") but looks nicer and has a larger bowl.
Anyone care to share any observations on their own experiences?
I know the right answer is probably "get both", lol.
