    I was doing some of my usual perusing of ebay, smokingpipes.com, and whatnot and ran across a Donegal Rocky (221) Fishtail that really just caught my eye. As I've been reffing a lot of hockey games lately, I have a little discretionary money at my disposal, so I figured what the hell and ordered it. A brand new Pete is a pipe I can get many years of enjoyment from, and pass along someday.

    To sweeten the deal they have a promotion that they send a tin of Peterson tobacco with the purchase of a Peterson pipe. So, along with the pipe, a tin of University Flake is on it's way.

    I have to say, I am anxiously awaiting the delivery!

    Cool...
    I just ordered another Forever Stem, P-Lip this time.
    No tin of weed for a boot though.

    Nope. I have worn them to the rink before games and to watch games but not on the ice. That just seems like a bad move to me. :D

    Part of the reason I went with a Pete is that it seemed... sturdy. I am one to use things. Not abuse them, but definitely not baby them.

    If I enjoy this one, I have a few others I am looking into.

    That donegal rocky finish just seems to fit perfectly with that fatty shank. Love Peterson's, and I think you're spot on ---- STURDY!

    I have a Rocky 221 that my daughters bought me for Father's Day. I love the pipe, and I am positive you will as well. The 221 is my favorite Pete full-bent. Great choice!!
