    I finally got around to cleaning up my estate falcon i "won" on the bay, and had my first smoke in it yesterday. Had another today. Let me preface my next comment by first saying i think my cobs are awesome!! Very good smokers. Buuuuuuuut, this Falcon is amazing! Super forgiving. I wanted to test it, so I puffed away on some skiff like it was going out of style. I mean, i was puffing a lot. Finally, it started to gurgle, a little. Tamp it down, unscrew, clean out 'dome, pc thru stem, put 'er back together and resume. Simply amazing. I will def be getting more bowls and prob at least one more stem. This thing rocks

    Welcome to the club :toast:

    You'll be wanting more then a couple of bowls, one for each different blend you smoke and a seven day rotation of stems should do it :ngty:

    Resistance is futile!
    Hard to beat a Falcon for a good smoke.

    What do you mean, "falcon enablers"? Don't go blaming us for your weakness. Suck it up, look in the mirror and say..."I've only myself to blame". :poke:

    Falcons are awesome! I have three vintage, two American and one British. I don't even touch my briars now. Well except for my Kaywoodie Author shape. :)

    Try a falcon full bent, if you like the straight.

    Falcon full bents are great working pipes if im doing chores outside (strictly no smoking in my house) i fill er with a flake of some sort and just clench away they are perfect for that you just forget its there
