As if Labor Day isn't enough to celebrate, the Peterson System turns 120 years old today. Party on, friends.

I own a few Petersons, but no system pipes. Perhaps one day...

Do they really make that much of a difference?
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.
- C.S. Lewis

I would have a piece of cake if it had no carbs.

I've had three over the years. Two were really good, the third okay. But I don't think they're dramatically better than a non-system pipe. Maybe I would feel differently if I smoked tobaccos that released more moisture.
I don't always choose sig lines just to tick someone off, but when I do, it's on CPS.

I like the system pipes but not necessarily because of the system itself; I just like the shapes. I have a collection of them (including a couple of discontinued shapes) and only need a 304 and 306 to make it a complete set of current shapes. They all smoke well except for one of the 315s, and it shoots sparks out at times. I think someone must have smoked gun powder in it.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Three Systems currently in my fleet.
My first one sadly was stolen.
I guess I am a System enthusiast :pipe2:

I have a couple of Petersons, but no system pipes. Just never sought them out

That's the irony of me posting this. I only have one and it's never been smoked.

May be time for you to smoke it and celebrate :chili: and maybe time for me to start watching for one

I’ve had a couple Pete Systems way back. Never got the right clench feel. Love they way they look and I don’t mind a p-lip. Just failed the clinch test.
