First off its been a while since I have been on here as I had severe back issues, and then a nasty infection---finally through all that---so anywho I thought I'd drop by with a question. Recently I have had my eye on a Peterson Plato freehand--and yes I know the shape doesn't appeal to tons of folks, but I really like the platue(forgive spelling error) top pipes. My question is two fold----#1--whats your opinions on these? #2---Many say that Petersons freehand pipes, and Plato series are "rare"----just how rare---is this more a marketing ploy, or do you really think they only do turn out small quantities each year??? To all thanks for your input in advance.
