Not that I don't enjoy my MMs, I'm certain that I'll be in the hobby for a long while and was looking for suggestions for a reasonably priced briar. I know some brands that have been mentioned as popular were Peterson, Savinelli, and Stanwell. I was wondering if anyone might help me narrow down a particular model line from them. As I'm navigating the pages I seem to be somewhat... overwhelmed. I was looking for something along the lines of "636" or "642" type style from the Sav shape chart, with some flexibility. (http://www.laudisi.com/shapechart.cfm). As far as the finish, something with a smooth and a mahogany to cherry sort of finish. Anyone help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
