PostSubject: Amazing!   Fri May 30, 2014 4:48 am

It never fails to amaze me how different two pipes can smoke.

I have here a beautiful Dr Grabow Omega which I use very seldom because it's but a so so smoker Evil or Very Mad 

I also have an old Parker Super Russet which I adore because it's an excellent, super smoker Very Happy 

I've loaded both pipes this morning with Pete's Irish Oak and smoked them side by side.

I'm going to replace the Omega with a commissioned bulldog from Goussard Pipes!

I "need" the 'dog to fill my rack for 50 pipes after I've given the Omega to someone who only smoke a pipe for the sake of smoking a pipe  Twisted Evil

Yep! I can agree. I don't know if it has anything to do with a persons taste buds
or chemical composition but, even in higher grade pipes I find some better then others.
Maybe the regional briar that there made of cause most but, not all Algerian Briar has
a bad taste for me. And some others as well, for instance I really love my older Mastro De Paja's but, one particular Radice I bought new has never smoked worth a dang and its well broken in now. Of course I do find it sometimes takes the right tobacco blend to make a pipe sing.
So many things play a roll in a good smoke I feel, like weather, moisture of tobacco, packing, health (having a cold, etc.) and even mood and stress levels. So is it really the pipe or just something else?
