Picked this pair up off the bay yesterday, they look to be in great shape and at $27 for the pair it seemed like a no brainer. Not sure about the finish on the Big Ben "Champagne" pipe tho. I've got two other Big Bens that smoke great (one smoked for the first time this morning w/ some SG FVF).

Yeah, I thought the watermelon look was kind of cool. Might keep it for a while until it gets shabby.

Yeah, it's not like it's a crazy neon green. Judging from the photo it looks fairly earthy so I'd rock it until I got a wild hair and then do something different with it

Nice score, the BC looks like a Camargue.

That's a nice BC and I hope it serves you well. Remember to always pronounce it phonetically in American English when you say call it your Butz Choquin.
