JUST EIGHT? That's barely a day's worth of smokes!! Let's see, 8 bowls a day x 7 days a week =56 x 4 weeks a month = 224 needed to allow for a correct rotation! That's all   Twisted Evil Twisted Evil 

Although I only have 3 bowls a day I only smoke out of 3 pipes per day for 2 days but, I have 14 in my rotation. Don't even try to do the math because it won't come out right. I smoke one once a day for two days and two once a day for a month and the rest (3 cobs 1 briar) are for trying new tobaccos or Pembroke and 3 friars. So at the end of the month I usually have 10 to do a through clean on. And that's enough for me. Of course from time to time I change one or more of my rotation pipes with others in my collection but, that doesn't effect the count to clean at the end of the month unless I do it in the middle of the month. In that case I could have 12 to clean but no more. Make sense?  scratch
BTW, I just purchased another Don Carlos 2 note but, it won't go into rotation for sometime yet....... or not. Haven't decided yet.

My bro', why do you buy a pipe if you're not sure whether you're going to smoke it soon? I usually can't wait to try a new pipe.

Because I not only enjoy a good smoke but, I enjoy the artistry of them.
Sorta like having a Rembrandt hanging on my wall, I can stare at it for hours enjoying it's beauty without the cost of a Rembrandt.

Well, i only have 1 or 2 bowls a day (unless its the weekend). So, that can cover the necessary rotation for me for now. PAD and TAD can quickly eat up alot of $$ that is more needed for a growing teenager's clothes and boots. He is 14, 6' tall and wears a size 14 boot. *sigh* There goes my budget for tobaccy next month.  lol!

If you decide to venture on to ebay, I highly recommend Sreve Fallon( pipestud). He is located in Texas and has a consignment shop on ebay. His pipes are as is and thedescriptions he gives are100% accurate. Additionaly, he is a true gentleman to deal with. I have several pipes from him in my rotation and all have been excellent, needing no more than a light cleaning before use, and that is rare.
