They smoke dry and cool. They are light and easy to transport. They are however, a pain to clean IMO. I take the most time to clean them because I have to use some sort of napkin, or paper to swab the inside of the dome in the stem. I don't want to leave any nasty tobacco juice on the bowl or in the stem. The same with Peterson system pipes, but they take a bit less because there are no threads to clean. What do you do with your falcon?
