When I first started a pipe around 1997, I was a total grain whore. I had maybe 2 non smooth pipes in my first collection. Eventually I realized I could not smoke grain but it sure was pretty. Back in the day just as the Euro came e out at a lowly .83 to a dollar I bought a number of straight grain pipes from Castello, Radice and the best bang for the buck amount of grain was Viprtati QQQQ. For around 200.00 you could get grain as good as any Castello. Their stems sucked though. The guy who sold them cheap was named Agide.
Today I am all about a great blast and a great stem. Go figure.
What I am smoking today is my favorite. When I was young I leaned towards the wild and crazy freehand. Now that I am older I lean towards the classics, of which Dunhill is renowned. But every once in a while, I just have to take a walk on the wild side.
