    I have tried a couple Falcons, and some other metal pipes and found them to be too high maintenance for me. I don't like having to take them apart to clean them out and find that if you don't clean them often they get messy and leak. But then I am lazy. So there ya have it.

    I am a fan. I have two Falcons - one bowl each. They see a lot of use and are easy for me to take care of...

    What Tom said. And I find they smoke Lakeland blends (and Condor) better than anything else I've got. I've heard the new bowls are a little slow to break in, but the two I have were all caked and ready when I got them. I would recommend them without hesitation.

    Both mine were estates - someone else did the break in for me.
