Dear Sirs,

I would appreciate some information about 'p-lips'.
Is it something attached to the mouthpiece of the
stem?

Thanks! :)

Nice try, Snake! :)

Are you some sort of witch-doctor then, who can cure everything
including pipe stems but who also can cast spells and make all
ones tobacco taste like sh**?? :eek:

I have no p-lip and no Peterson - but I can easily compile a list of
PSF'ers who suffer from p-lips - so you can tell them all about
the danger and your magical powers. The tobacco that you get
from them we split 50/50 OK? :D

I don't know, I've been using the p-lip now for some time, and I have to say that if you burn your roof with it then you're smoking something way hotter than you should in your pipe. I get a comparable amount of tongue bite as I do with my beater pipe, but never anything even resembling the burning or "cooking" as some people describe, and I have a tendency to smoke probably hotter/faster than I should.

I wouldn't call the p-lip a great innovation, just a different style of bit. It will suit some and some not.

I have a friend who will only smoke P-lips, whereas my two P-lip pipes just sit there and look pretty. One of them is a beautifully restored '60s billiard 3. I've not smoked it yet and I've had it at least 2 years.

A P-lip is pretty much a love-hate thing. There are some people I call bi-bituals but not many.

Me? I am a hater. Tried to like it - gave up.
