I know that this opinion can change from day to day but, do you prefer bent or straight pipes? There have been times when I would only reach for my straights and other times would just alternate every smoke. Recently I have found myself reaching for my bent pipes about 100% of the time for the last month or so. What is everyone's current preference?

I prefer bent to straight for leisure time, but I use mostly straight pipes when working or doing chores.

I prefer bent. Not a full bent 1/4 to 1/2. That's not to say I don't have straight pipes I love. Also like 1/8 bent. cyclops

“Do you prefer bent or straight pipes?”


Yes, I do.

I have 2 straight pipes, 2 standard bent pipes, and one bent churchwarden. For my future pipes I do have a mix of straight and bent pipes. I don't like full bent pipes i.e oom pauls

I used to prefer deeply bent pipes; now most of my pipes are straight or nearly so. My very favorites seem to be those with a slight bend.

Only 2 straights I smoke are Talbert and Peterson Silver Spigot Fishtail. The Talbert is small pipe and very light. Perfect of flakes. The Peterson is comfortable has hell but I worry my clenching will damage it so I put a rubber bit on it. All other pipes are 1/8 or 1/4 bent.

No preference. I have more straights right now, but I smoke the 1/8th bents probably more often because of their smaller size. I'm maybe in-between and like a very slight bend. A crook. A little flair.

I prefer slightly bent pipes more than full bent or straight. That being said, I'm smoking a Weber straight billiard with meerschaum liner as I type this!

Well now that's a bit of a puzzlement. The pipes I tend to buy are mostly bents. The pipes SWIMBO tends to buy for me are straights or very slightly bent. The pipes I smoke most are straights.

Make of this what you will

Bent on smaller pipes and straight on larger pipes. Favorite shape is Canadian, so the collection tends toward straight. I'd also say that I prefer smooth on smaller bowls and texture (blast or carved/rusticated) on larger bowls.

I am predominantly a straight pipe guy but I do find when things require serious contemplation or tasting my bents come to the forefront.
