Does anyone have a Rossi pipe? How is the draw on yours?

All b.s. aside, aren't they're just Savinellis without the filter? Seems like they should draw OK.

Hey burl, yes probably. My recently acquired Savinelli's draw pretty good, but honestly they aren't as open as I like. I asked chip at smoking pipes and he said the one i was inquiring about has 3mm airway...what exactly does this mean in terms of draw?

What size airway do you find gives you the best "draw" for you? Measure a pipe you have that has the "draw" you like and compare the two. if the Rossi is smaller then it will not be to your liking. I have pipes with all different sizes of airways and I've found that I need to learn the smoking traits of each and smoke the 'baccy that works best in each. IE I DON"T smoke a full Aro in a pipe with an airway as small as your Rossi as these tend to smoke WET for me and the moisture will clog it!! Just how I've dealt with this as there is NO universal size airway for ALL types of 'baccy ! Just my 40+ years of smoking experience!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I don't know, what do you have? Twisted Evil Twisted Evil I have over 20 Savinelli's and they vary from some at 3mm up to 6 mm so all I can say is compare it with some other Savs you have and decide if you can live with it or send it to someone like Walker to have them open it up. Or just get rid of it and move on!! You need to decide what YOU WANT !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

The punto oro I got says 6mm on the box. But does that mean it has a 6mm airway or it takes a 6mm filter? If it has a 6mm airway and the rossi has 3mm airway, that sounds like rossi would have a very constricted draw.

I have never heard anyone say anything about the draw on a Rossi. My understanding is that they are just Savinelli pipes without the filter. I don't have one, but I have considered them in the past...

I find a 3mm draw to be about perfect. Up to about 3.5mm is fine. After that I find the draw to be too open.
I have opened the airway in several of my pipes to 3.2mm (1/8 in.) and they smoke great.
As far as the Punto Oro being a 6mm pipe, I would expect they meant that it takes a 6mm filter, as a pipe with a 6mm airway would be way too open to smoke well.

hey max, so if a punto oro takes a 6mm filter, than what size is the airway?

I've been curious about Rossi pipes, too. From the few I've seen in person, I am impressed with the engineering. I still haven't gotten one, but maybe I will one of these days.

yea i like the straight billiards but i'm concerned the draw is too tight. not sure why savinelli makes rossi simple billiards but everyone of their own pipes has some stupid ugly color theme or a gimmicky appearance.

Ah! Someone else noticed! I call it "whored up." In fairness, some of their upscale offerings are OK, and there are always estates from better days to be found. I would say to try a Rossi. I doubt that the airway is "restricted," but it could always be opened up if needed. Be aware that Rossi is not a high-grade pipe, and that the dark color is there for a reason, namely to hide bald grain, to say nothing of fills. My Duca Carlo, which I think is equivalent, actually has a crack in the bowl, and tobacco tastes twice as strong in it as in any other pipe I own--the ol' green wood effect, I call it.

Agreed.  A 6 mm airway would be a mistake.  I worry more about the airway being too open on a pipe.  You can almost always ream the airway to open it up if its too restricted.  The Rossi pipes look like a good value.  I've seen a few YT reviews where they were favorably compared with Savs, but have no experience with them myself.

Probably somewhere between 3 and 4 mm.  Call SmokingPipes.com and ask.  I'm sure that they will be able to tell you the exact number.

I've got a Rossi Prince that, yes, was a hundred buck pipe, but I've recently baptized it with Dan Mellow Mallard and it smokes wonderfully.

You CAN'T fit a 6mm thick filter in a 3 to 4 mm hole!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Do the math Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
