    I havent posted in awhile. How are you fellers and ladies,
    I ordered a mmcc american patriot straight pipe just cause it looked cool. Has anybody here smoked one? Im thinking a nice bowl of cavendish would taste fine! I only seen pictures so whats the uniqe bowl shape do? It looks real nice. Im hoping it got a dark coloration. Like in the picture.
    any opines?

    thank sj

    I really like the shape too, I havent smoked one but assume they smoke just as well as all the other MM cobs.

    The Patriot cob is also non-filtered.

    Every MM shape has it's fans.

    I have a Patriot (one of my first cobs from Aristocob) and I like it, a lot.
    Of course, I like a stained cob and I don't use a filter ;-)

    I put a Forever Stem on mine and use it as a "field pipe." The thinner Forever Stem has a very nice mouth-feel.

    And as far as color goes, here's what mine looks like:

    I picked one up not too long ago. I like it. It's a smaller bowl, but like spill said, it's a great on the go pipe.

    No rhyme nor reason to taste. I don't know why, but I really dislike that shape.

    That PA stuff should be kept for briars and meers and never smoked in a cob when one has CH & Cherry.;)

    Edit. But then again, I did hear the Cherry is great in a small briar pipe.:ohyh:

    Man, I love that stem on a cob. I've really become a fan of cobs & CH.

    It's kind of an odd shape. Maybe it's an acquired taste. :) Mine smoked good -- for about a month. Then the bit broke off. It wasn't hot, and I was just trying gently to remove it to clean the pipe and suddenly it was Oops There It Goes. Spillproof's suggestion of a Forever Stem now seems like a real good idea. I'm having trouble getting the barrel out of the stem, so I don't know if it will ever be in rotation again. From my experience I'd say be careful -- or go with Spillproof and get a nice Forever Stem.

    There are cheaper options than Forever Stems, but I like them. You just slap a regular bit on it (PIMO).

    I love my bent Patriot.. Smoke it an awful lot in fact. I had stem problems too with the original stem, so I grabbed a old vulcanite straight stem I had laying around and did some sanding and polishing and give it the wee bit o' bend and it looks awesome and smokes great.
