I've got my first Peterson, a p-lipped 302. It really surprised me the difference in tasting compared to my traditional/regular pipes. I tasted things in my baccos that I hadn't tasted before. Orlick's Golden Sliced red is utterly fandamntastic in the Pete! I mean...wow! The smoke is cooler, and tastier, so I guess this means I'm a Pete believer...except!...the stem. Why oh why'd they have to make it so rounded? I know some have no problems clenching Pete stems but for me it just wants to roll around. Peterson fans might want to stop reading now because I'm about to speak profanely. Has anyone took a file to flatten the upper and maybe lower radius of the stem in front of the p-lip? I wonder if I could flatten it enough to facilitate comfortable clenching. Anyone? PS, anyone know if the fishtail and p-lip stems are the same diameter towards the bit?
