LC Vanilla in this Sculpted Purex pot. This is a neat little pipe, very light, easy to clench, with a surprisingly generous bowl. Only problem is that it's got a much tighter draw than I prefer, due to the way the "stinger" end of the stem is molded. (I'm not sure if "stinger" is really the right word for it) Because of that, I've gotta be very careful with packing and tamping, or it'll tighten up the draw so much that I've gotta dump it and start over. So, it's a very loose codger scoop and then very light tamps thereafter. A good smoker, nonetheless! :D

PS- I see that I've now been given the honorific of "codger in training"! (I assume that's automatic at a certain number of posts?) In any case, I'll do my best to be a credit to PSF, and live up to the honor. :)
