    Buying a longer rifle is not how you fix poor targeting skills.

    You have admitted to puffing too vigorously. Fix that and everything else will fall into line.

    Forgot to say earlier. I've had a Peterson system pipe for years and rarely use it. I found it either gets blocked or gurgles every time I smoke it. Might just have been unlucky but I've heard similar tales of woe from others.

    I think I have joined the Filters Are Real Tonguebiters club.

    Since joining F.A.R.T. for a day, I think I have seen the light.

    The pipe bowl no longer glows cherry red when I smoke now.


    Probably the result of less than 1,500 fps smoke velocity.

    Thanks for the hint. Hope it lasts.

    You have to give up the idea that it's the pipe that's giving you the problem.You need to go back and find a book or video on the basic do's and don'ts of pipe smoking. Here"s a little self help, smoke English Blends and stay away from the Aeromatics to start with. The casing used in the aeromatic blends tend to make many people drool into their pipe!!!

    What if I fail the class?

    Could I go to pipe prison?

    Nah, you're right about aromatics. I learned that a long time ago.
    Mixture 79 gets a smoke about every other week or so.
    My latest local blend is cool.

    Actually, the answers to the OP were what I needed. Taking out the filters seems to be what I was looking for.
    No, I probably (make that certainly) do not have a perfected technique.
    I'm back to pipes after a 35-40 year hiatus and enjoying the experience.

    The filters are what probably kept me pulling and pulling to keep the damn thing lit. I even experimented with packing and looser pack does work better, but removing the filter is working fine for me.
    I think the only reason I used em in the first place is from the old ....cigarette....hangover and propaganda and I just carried it over to pipes.

    I don't inhale anyhow so filters serve ...WHAT... purpose?

    Occluding the draw is all I can see.

    Anyhow thanks for all the help.

    I get the Pipes & Cigars magazines and 50 emails a week so what would be a mild ...ENGLISH.... blend to try?

    I tellya, this "Mr. President" that I get at Tobacco Road in Sacramento is awful damn good. Everyone who's tried it says, "Wow."

    I have a Peterson system and three Savinelli dry system pipes. I like them and they seem to smoke well.

    The p-lip and Savinelli variant focus the smoke away from the tongue, but they just relocate irritation if that is an issue for you.

    Never heard of the Sav "dry system" Thanks for info.
    I looked them up on P&C and found a review that said

    The pipe cleaner does not go inside the mouth piece. Very bad workmanship.
    I quit curved pipes for the tobackky soup issue and only smoke straights now.
    Are your drys easy to clean?

    Is "relocated irritation" like getting a crappy neighbor to move away?
