    That red hue, the deep rustification, and that gold and green band? Just beautiful...

    I guess I should have mentioned it's a Peterson Emerald Zulu.

    I figured it was a Pete, and Zulu's is one of my favorite bends, but don't have a Pete in that bend..yet

    There's a lot that I've looked at before deciding to embark on this quest that just didn't pop to me like this one does.

    I hear Zulu's are great for flakes, too.

    I have yet to try a flake in mine as of yet, might give that a shot later
    Not a lot of 268's showing up online either:oops:

    Yeah, they're pretty limited. The ones I do find have either this or that not quite how I want it, and at this point I'm just not going to compromise. I will have this pipe!

    For a second there, I thought I might be able to help you out. But, my Pete #268 is a Donegal Rocky, with silver band: [​IMG] You're right about them being superb pipes for flakes.

    I'm quite fond of the banded ones(both of my Petes are), but my Zulu's are smooth..again...sofar
    On the ebay one, the price seems nice for a banded, it worth a little less because its nickel vs silver, but still nice, and no polishing on the nickel
    Might be a great choice while you search for the other one!

    Thanks Thuber, but I just can't do the bidding thing anymore. I get so emotionally invested, and always lose! Buy it now or nothing for me from now on.

    Is that Donegal something you're willing to trade, Terry?

    I'll give it a bid and see what happens. Hopefully these pipe bidders aren't as competitive as the recurve bow crowd is.

    its not a bid, if you put in your "bid" you just bought a pipe
    its a buy it now, same as walking into a store

    Oh, I was talking about bidding on the one with the silver band. The buy it now price on the nickel one is higher than PAD control will let me go right at this point.
