I must admit, in my actual daytime job, I conduct a variety of authentic research, publishing studies in various peer reviewed academic journals. Although I enjoy writing and researching in the formal academic setting, this was by far one of the most enjoyable ‘studies’ I have conducted to date. Yes, there are a multitude of differences in my academic work and personal hobby driven inquiries, however, I was able to ascertain a lot of valuable information while easily determining which of these three filters provided the best smoking experience.
The Medico pipe filter did a fine job of providing a cool semi-clean smoking experience. The filter draft allowed for an easy draw, however, did not do a great job of collecting moisture. The amber pipe stem past the filter contained a significant amount of wetness that required a pipe cleaner halfway through the smoking experience. Further, near the end of the bowl, as the moisture built up, the tobacco tastes started to become somewhat muttled and tart. Overall, this pipe filter’s name summarizes the experience you will get from its use…mediocre. I’m sure many readers are hesitant to believe that this was done fairly, but I can assure you it was. Brog 9mm pipe filter was very similar to the Medico except it was not hallowed the entire way through (a pipe cleaner will not pass through the filter as it would with the Medico). Instead, there were six tiny filter holes on each end of the filter that allowed smoke to smoothly flow through the filter, up the stem, and into the mouth.
Brog pipe filter provided an extremely cool smoking experience allowing for the natural grassy, honey, bready tastes of the Virginia tobacco to shine through on my palate. Brog filter did a phenomenal job of collecting moisture leaving little to no trace in the upper amber part of the pipe stem. Although it is recommended that you change the pipe filter after every 1 to 2 smokes, I am confident the quality of these filters will allow for many more outstanding bowls before needing to be removed and replaced. Without a doubt I was greatly surprised at the quality and precision this filter gave me on my smoking experience. These filters have always intrigued me and from everything I have read, people either love them or they hate them. I must admit, for this experiment, the Savinelli Balsa Wood filters performed the worst out of the three choices. Giving the filter the benefit of the doubt, I am not sure they are designed for corn cob pipes, however, in order to stay consistent, that is what I used them in. The smoking experience proved extremely difficult, and quite unenjoyable, as the draw was much too tight on the pipe. Because of this, the tobacco had trouble burning properly and making the process overall somewhat frustrating. I will admit that the balsa filters did a nice job of absorbing moisture, but after one, maybe two smokes, you will need to be changing this filter out, therefore, also making it the worst option financially. In the end, when you consider performance, price, and pipe smoking enjoyment I would wholeheartedly recommend the Mr. The quality and craftsmanship that have gone into creating these filters is above and beyond, thus, elevating the enjoyment of each bowl of pipe tobacco smoked. And at $5.99 for a pack of 10 filters, you are guaranteed to get a new enjoyment from your pipes and tobaccos. Brog Pipe Filters, you will want that “Three-pipe problem” to turn into a “Five-pipe problem” as your pipe smoking enjoyment will only be elevated. The filter is usually located inside the mouthpiece tenon, the part that goes inside the shank. There are many kinds of filters on the market but the most comon are the metal filters and the 9mm filters. Here are a few details about these filters so you can make your own choice: Metal filters: What are they? It is a small piece of metal, shame may be very different from one metal filter to another. When reaching the metal system, the smoke will cool down so the tar and nicotina will settle on this area. Unless, broken or dammaged, there is no need to replace it for a new one after several uses. Simply clean it with soapy water or with paper-towel. This system is cheap but is also the least efficient compared with 9mm filters. If your filter is too dirty or broken, it is time to change it for a new one. These are short 9mm diameter cartridges filled with activ coal or meerschaum pellets. These filters are the most efficient available today, they will trap tar anf nicotina along with moist. Pro's and Con's: These filters are more and more popular among smokers, but you have to change your filter on a regular basis, like every two or three pipes.
If you keep you filter, draught will be difficult or even impossible. You cannot use a 9mm filter in all pipes, it must be fitted accordingly. Even though the vast majority of pipes are equipped with metal filters, more and more pipes are fitted with 9mm filters today. The type of filter is shown in the description area for all pipes.
