    Nice work! I also prefer saddle stems, but I'd be too scared to try modifying it myself.

    Yes, I have to agree, all kidding aside, that the new (refinished) stem is much nicer, and I love bulldogs so I have to like this pipe. Nice work Spillproof.

    I honestly wish Spill would start doing this professionally. I would rather sent my pipes needing repair to a fellow PSF'er than somewhere else. No offense to Walkers or Floyd, they do a fabulous job.

    Hmm...my Ashton has the same issue with the stem slope to the bit being too steep...I see there is hope.

    Nice work, Spill!

    Wow that turned out really nice! The bulldog is not my favorite shape but that stem mod makes that pipe for me! Again, wow!

    I just got my Spill-Dog and It truly is a work of art. It fits me like a glove I can now clench it with no trouble and the look is very classy. the pics don't do it justice.

    Thank You Spillproof..
