So for you Peterson fans out there... I'm longing to get a System pipe, but they almost exclusively come in bent shapes. This makes sense to me, as the well would be somewhat below the tennon, allowing the moisture to more readily collect out of harm's way. But they only ALMOST exclusively come in bent shapes. There are straight systems, too. For those of you who have owned/smoked both, how do straight systems compare? Do they work as well? I love the look of them even more than the bent pipes, but if it's not as sound a design, I'd go with bent of course. This is what has me scratchin my head... http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/peterson/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=77752 I think it looks great. I have a birthday coming up, and I'm thinking of asking for it, but if the straights don't work as well as system pipes, I may well look at something else.
