Most smokers clench their pipes. It's something that is a reality of pipe smoking, no matter who you are. Instead of continually hurting your teeth and marking up your pipe, why not put a soft rubber bit over the tip of your pipe stem? This will make your pipe more comfortable and will protect your treasured pipe as well.
Brand: BJ Long
Model: Soft Rubber Pipe Bits
Length: 0.72 in. / 18.33 mm.
Width: 0.52 in. / 13.41 mm.
A nice soft feel for most pipes, to large for mm cobs or old german clays but a perfect fit for rossi, molina, DR Grabows, altinay's sized stems.
Fits normal stems, does the job of keeping hard plastic away from my teeth. I have several pipes that are too heavy to clench with the acrylic stem but after adding a rubber pipe bit I can clench with ease. recommend to all Enthusiasts.
These are great. Wish I had them years ago.
Really stretchy. I had my doubts on some of my wide bits but just wet them in water and they slide right on.
I buy these every time I get a new pipe. They not only save the bit, but more importantly, your teeth. I always put them on upside down (larger end first).
I like to clench, but my teeth don’t really like it with out using these bits. They fit on a wide variety of stems, but not the normal Missouri Meerschaum stems (they do fit the Danish style ones though).
They seem to work great. Not sure how snug they should be, but these are very tight. Once they’re on, they don’t move.
Decent coverage for protecting the stem from my chompers. Slightly small, but they fit a wide variety of my pipes. I kind of wish they were a little longer. I’m clenching with my molars and the ridge it makes on the stem is right at my lips.
For anyone that has a habit of biting on the stem, these are a great product to have. Saves the stems.
