Rubber Bit Protectors are a huge hit among the P&C Faithful, and it's easy to understand why. First, they will protect your stems from tooth marks and chatter, preserving the value of your pipes. They are also much more comfortable for people with sensitive teeth or dentures and give you a more positive grip on the mouthpiece. They're also great for vulcanite stems, as they help protect against oxidation.
P&C carries two sizes of Rubber Bit Protectors, so you can put one on almost any pipe you own. The Large has thinner, stretchier walls and a larger opening, so they're ideal for those extra-wide stems that are so popular on oval-shank pipes. The Smalls have thicker walls and a smaller opening, giving you a snugger fit on smaller stems and a touch more cushioning.
Now, P&C offers Buy More, Save More pricing on Rubber Bit Protectors, so it pays to stock up!
Unless you have a very small pipe you need to buy these. Hands down amazing. I like to still have my hands free while smoking, before my pipe would wobble around because I didn't want to bite down too hard. Now it doesn't move anywhere. bonus- I feel like the added space around the bit helps to give me an even better draw
Love these things, good on my teeth as soft as they are. thank you for stacking a great product. jimmy california
Whats to say? They fit my MM cobs (Missouri Pride, Eaton, Legend, and Pony Express)
Love these- there is one on nearly every pipe.
Should protect the bits on my better pipes. I don't like how the "softy bits" look, but they do make clinching more comfortable.
Went back and forth on ordering these, but should've grabbed them as soon as I saw them. Very sturdy and comfortable for clenching. Grab some and give them a try... you won't be disappointed.
This is my second time ordering a bunch of these. I put them on all of my pipes to keep from marking up the stems. They work great and are very inexpensive to keep on hand.
Works great on most pipes. If you've got a stem with a small mouthpiece, such as those found on MO Meerchaum Corncobs, then this'll fit fairly loose. That said, even for those pipe, this does the job.
Great bits, I find myself clenching and chewing on the pipe from time to time. Cracked the stem on one of my cobs from biting down too much.
These feel great in my teeth and stretched even onto my largest bits.
Bits fit over my basket pipe and custom poker. So far holding up remarkably well and allow for some solid clenching.
They make my pipe bits a bit more comfortable. I have them on each of my more weighty pipes.
These are very comfy. I'll be using them on all my pipes.
These are an excellent product. The ones carried here are for large stems, that is wide stems. Smaller stemmed pipes will need the other size, which P&C does not carry at this time. These fit 75% of the many pipes I own.
Personally, I can't get used to these pipe bits. I find it very awkward to use when trying to clench the pipe in my mouth. It also doesn't fit on pipe bits that aren't very big. For example, you will not find a single Missouri Meerschaum pipe that this fits on. It is simple too big to fit around the pipe bit. I think this is something that others may end up liking a lot, but I just can't get used to it.
These feel better in your mouth than the other ones I got. It would also seem that they don't fit as snugly on my pipes as the other ones I have, but other than that they're really very good.
Not bad at all. A little thick but then again I need to get used to it. Nice to have as one who smokes when I do things with the hands.
These things are awesome. Anyone who like to smoke their pipes hands free without worrying about teeth marks, look no further.
