My favorite MM model is the Mark Twain followed by the Markus.

I enlarge the bore on all my MM's . . . with these models I maintain a conical profile.

Both (as all MM's) smoke extremely well.

My favorite is the apple shaped Diplomat, but I also like the looks of the 5th Avenue Diplomat.

i now have both the Fifth ave and the Mark Twain, the latter just getting broke in. I love the MT, but the narrow bowl does burn different.

The Mark Twain is a good one for boring out. I will say the Rob Roy has been a very nice pipe.

I think [mention]Kevin Keith[/mention] 's favorite model is the Roxy.

I’ve been a big fan of the Twains straight and bent ever since their release but after acquiring a pair of CG’s, I’m leaning toward them now.

After that it’s the Marcus

My favorite is the Patriot although I haven't had one in years. What I have are a Corndog, Cobbler PSF POY, 5th Ave and a custom Cobalier.

I have an MT heading my way, should be here Tuesday since UPS is taking their sweet time, how would I go about boring it out?

I have a 3/4 in drill bit. I have also used a sandpaper drum on a dremel with great success.
