Good afternoon everyone. I have a pipe called " The Par Shooter " cannot find any numbers on it, or any other markings besides on the bottom of the pipe where it says The Par Shooter. I will try and put up pics and hope that helps.18501851

It looks line it is modeled from the Savinelli Bing's Favorite. It may be a promotional pipe somebody had made special, maybe a Country Club or Golf Club of some sort.

Well that sounds good a " Savinelli ". I have another one that smokes very well as does the Par Shooter. Thanks Bob.

I'm not saying its a Sav, but it looks similar to a Savinelli Bing's Favorite. You could email Savinelli and ask if they ever produced such a pipe.

Here is a pic of my Bing's Favorite, similar but without the bend in the stem.

I don't know if it's a Sav, but it looks like a well-crafted pipe, and if it was a giveaway of some sort, I'd say it's on the upper end of those kinds of pipes. It's a lot more common to see something like a Missouri Meerschaum as a promotional gift. Hope it smokes well for you, Morty!

Could it be a Jobey Filtersan 735 or some other Jobey?

It does smoke nicely HCraven, just what does Par Shooter mean? It is an odd name The Par Shooter.

Par is a reference to a golf score, Par Shooter may mean a golf club? That's what made me think of Bing's Favorite, a pipe that was produced to Bing Crosby's specifications, and Bing was big into golf.

T you are referring to the wrong pipe, the one with the golf club is a Sav Bing's Favorite. The mystery pipe is the one Morty58 posted in the OP!

Well shooting par is a sign that you are a pretty good golfer so I think a par shooter would be a golf reference. Par is the base score that you try to achieve on each hole. (So if a hole had a par of four you are aiming to get it in on four shots to make par. Five shots is one over par, three would be one under etc.)
So the name seems to be a golf reference implying someone who is capable of shooting par, which I can tell you is not an easy feat for most golfers.
