I always blame the user before the tool. In the case of Peterson it's nine times outta ten the opposite. If you want a Falcon just buy one. I like gimmicks just as much as everyone else does... lol
Gimmick pipes make me feel empowered. And a Space Agey. I feel like I'm back in 1965.
Space Agey is that mid century era vibe. I'm with ya...

As I only have one Peterson I'm no expert but I love it. It's a Calabash.

Mine also has the same issue. It must be said that I don't smoke a pipe in a conventional manner. Usually I load just enough for several puffs for my nicotine hit & put it down. Before bed I clean the 'plug' at the bottom, which is a bit stinky by then & only affects the taste of the baccy if the plug gets moist.

I've tried those nording keystones that Houtenzial mentioned but they didn't work for me. From memory it let in too much air but that could have a lot to do with packing technique.

It took me a while to get comfortable with my Peterson. Certainly get a Falcon because it's good to have at least 2 pipes so they can be rested but it's worth persevering with your Peterson until you get the hang of it. Good luck.
