These are wonderful, a little expensive but they last longer then the paper filters however they are also able to be cleaned and dried after 4 to 5 uses... I don't know yet how many times they can be cleaned and reused but I'll find out soon enough...
Although I prefer no filters, I find the balsa wood filters do not interfere with the smoking quality of the pipe or the tobacco.
I’m a little bit of a wet smoker. The balsa filters do a great job of controlling moisture without impeding smoke. In my opinion they work far better than charcoal filters which seem to affect the draw. The balsa filters don’t seem to have any negative effects on flavor. I clean the filter and let it dry overnight and get about 3 bowls of tobacco before I toss it. Pipe: Savinelli Tundra 624 - 9mm Tobaccos: Escudo, Sun Bear Black Locust
Enjoy you favorite tobacco without all of the junk! :)
Very good for helping tobacco bite less. :)
They fit and do the job. Tasteless.
I've never been a fan of the 9 mm. carbon or paper filters; carbon filters (in my opinion) negatively affect strength and taste, and the paper filters don't really take care of the moisture problem. With 9mm. balsa filters, I feel like I get the full taste with a lot better moisture absorption. Adapters restrict the huge draw of a filter pipe, but why not eliminate the gurgle as well? Highly recommended!
Very good. I will order some more.
In my 9mm Vauen...way better airflow.
