    Being a new pipe smoker, personally i drifted towards the bigger italians at first. They look cool and provide a lot of smoking time.. Then i switched my preference towards a smaller one as i found myself emptying the bowl before i finished smoking the big'uns.

    I recently recieved a MacArthur from missouri meerchaum though.. just came back from a family easter dinner type thing and i brought the macarthur, which is a huge pipe with a massive bowl. I packed it with a light english blend before i went and i sat there puffing it on the porch for 3 hours.. Perhaps i am biased due to this recent excellent experience, but that was magical. Big'uns all the way!

    I have a few cobs, and smaller pipes, bit it's my bigger pipes that get most of the attention. Nothing like packing up a flake and a half of OGS and getting it to simmer down imo
