When I saw the package, I could not believe that I paid $20 for this. I would expect $5. I tried them because I have one non-filtered pipe, but I love it too much to sell it. All my other pipes are 9mm filters. This did work fairly well, I was pleased with it. A nice idea that does help filter the smoke and cool it fairly well. It does not function as well a 9mm filter, maybe half as well. But that is enough to make a difference. I'll continue using 9mm filters, but it is nice to smoke my favorite old handmade artisan pipe again. So, this is fairly successful. It does help.
There are many inserts and filters, all claiming to work miracles in your pipe, but this one really works. Will it make your briar smoke like a meerschaum? Well, that’s really a matter of opinion, but it will definitely improve the quality of your smoke by making it drier, improving airflow, and eliminating dottle, leaving behind a fine, powdery ash. This little insert is definitely worth the $2 outlay. Each filter can be reused multiple times, making the cost per use a few pennies. Buy it—you won’t be disappointed.
These work well, they definitely help to reduce gurgle. They also help to reduce the amount of tobacco that may be wasted when used in a pipe that is drilled at a steep angle and does not burn to the bottom.
This is a great idea. I use them in my corn cobs with the large draft hole... they protect the bottom from burning out and keep me from drawing in ash.
This is a super-clever gadget if you tend to puff to fast. They keep the tobacco dry and the smoke cool. Really not necessary if you smoke correctly, but if you puff like Popeye then they're a GREAT addition to safeguard your briar.
Very odd rating system. The ball filters are amazing and didn't fall out as easily as I thought they would. They most certainly help keep the pipe a little drier.
