Same here with the Cobs. I usually load up an MM Pride with something mild and savory. I sent my last Carter Hall out to Craig so the last few times it's been Sutliff Westminster, STM, or one of the Frogs. I've tried to use a beater briar but I really seem to clinch when I'm doing chores, so I really like the soft bit on MM's. And they're cheap to replace when I chew them up.
