    Just to make sure I am being correct... A saddle bit is a bit that is carved in from both the top and bottom?

    Best to all

    Don't want to hijack this thread, but did want to say to Gerry that I like your new avatar photo! Looks like you are having a good time.

    Cheers,

    HEY ,,, that first pipe looks familiar. I do like wide flat stems. Saddle stems fit the bill, they seem to be less obtrusive. I've picked up an older pipe at a show, and the bit is more tubular, it works, but you sure know its there.

    Cheers, Len S

    Yeah, saddle bits are nicer for a walking around pipe if you wanna clench on it for long periods of time.
