    I have a Nording Aerosphere that I snagged off the 'bay from a guy in Ireland. It is a pretty massive pipe. (I will try to post pics tonight). Anyways, what is the deal with the aerosphere idea of putting a hole into the pipe to help cool the smoke? It SOUNDS like a decent idea but clearly never took off because you don't see them much.

    Oh okay... yeah... geez, I dunno. Some "fresh" air would be sucked into the hole as the smoke went by (Bernoulli effect). But other than that.... it's just a pipe with a hole in it.

    That's what I figured. Weird to me too. Guess that's why they never really caught on.

    I drill a hole in stems for cooler more open draw..... Carey magic inch makes an aerosphere and the old monarch pipes have the same (no longer being made.) Its tricky..too large a hole and you will wish you hadn't drilled, although the hole is easy to refill. I believe it helps sometimes. I obviously have a lot of old so so pipes that I experiment on. Fun.
