Softy Pipe Bits

Softy Pipe Bits 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 Softy Bits, 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 Small have thicker walls and a smaller opening, giving you a snugger fit on smaller stems and a touch more cushioning.

May work for you - didn't work well for me.
I bought five of these because I have a bad habit of chewing on all my pipe stems, leaving ugly tooth marks. However, adding these bits to the end of the stem makes the stem awkwardly and uncomfortably large. Additionally, the bits quickly stretch out and lose their seal, making it difficult for a smooth and easy draw. I will use them when absent-mindedly chewing on my pipe stem, but when I actually light up a bowl, I will pass.

Must have in my opinion
Love these for my pipes. Keeps the stem safe from bite marks an provides extra grip if you are a clencher. The rubber material is pliable enough to stretch over most stems so should be good to go. Honestly I wouldn’t want to go without them on my pipes anymore, and hey they’re super cheap what’re you waiting for.

Ordered wrong size
I ordered the large not realizing what size I needed. Seems like most pipes would work with smaller size. If I had ordered the correct size I think it would work fine.

Large Softy Pipe Bits
I've used rubber pipe-bits for years and years, to protect the stems since I tend to clench down hard. Problem has been putting standard bits on my larger pipes with wide stems. These solve that problem nicely. Only one drawback - hence 4 stars not 5 - is that the rubber is much thinner than with standard size bits, so I'm not sure these will last as long.

These are for larger than average people
Good product however they seem to be to large for me. They keep my jaw at an uncomfortable position and have sharp edges that needed to be trimmed with a razor.

These babies are clutch!
Amazing. These soft bits make it easier to clench, and helps prevent the bite marks on the stem. I wish I'd tried them sooner.

I have dentures and it’s hard to keep a pipe held in my mouth, so these softy pipe bits make it a lot easier.

You need some of these if you smoke pipes with large bits.
Sometimes the standard Softy Pipe Bits are too tight. That's when you need one of these. Keep some on hand.

Great product!
I knew some people was using Softy pipe bits and decided to try it. To my pleasant surprise, it works great! It protects mouth piece from bite marks and it goes easy on your teeth against hard material mouth pieces like Lucite. One of my favorite pipes has mouse piece chipped a little and I was thinking of repairing it, but softy pipe bit covers that spot and I can smoke that pipe again without any discomfort. It’s a great product!

Rubber Pipe tips
I don't have my upper teeth anymore and with dentures having the rubber tip makes it easier to hold my pipes in my mouth. I also like a corn cob pipe, but the smaller tips are still too large for the small pipe tips they have.

Stem Protection
Most reviewers who don't like these rubber soft stem bits say it is because of the "taste". Well personally I don't detect any particular taste at all. I do however find that these soft rubber bits offer two advantages: 1). They protect my pipe stems from teeth marks, especially on thin stemmed pipes which seem to require a bit more pressure to hold by my teeth. The soft rubber is far more comfortable as well, also providing a better grip on the pipe. 2). The bit also provides stem protection against what many term "oxidation", that light brown patina that slowly begins to coat the vulcanite stems, (but I suspect it is not truly oxidation but rather the tars in the smoke mixing with moisture from the smoker's breath which produces the brownish layer, most especially near the mouth end of the stem). As far as the "large" size of this Softy Pipe Bits goes, it is very helpful for stems that are wider of course. I recommend using them, primarily for the first reason, protection and comfort. I'll continue to buy more as needed, (they don't last forever, and there's always another new pipe to protect).

LARGE Softy pipe bits
True to their name, they deliver on size: much easier to stretch over wide stems; less likely to split due to not being overstretched.

These fit on my Big Ben Royal Tan 033 pretty good. I originally got them for my Peterson Standard System 301, but they are just a little too big. I’ll have to try the small ones on that.

Softy bits review
I'm new to the pipe smoking hobby and at first wasn't sure that softy bits would make a difference; I was utterly wrong. These robust bits make clenching a pipe exceptionally easy and comfortable. Most of my collection are cheap pipes but with softy bits I feel confident that a more expensive pipes stem will last years and look brand new.

Not much to say about a product such as this.They hold up well!

Large means large
I don't actually have stems these fit snugly on. They seem well-made, but the small softies I ordered are the ones that fit my pipes. Those are just fine.

Bite the bit not the stem
Being a man who has put holes in pipe stems from grasping my pipe with my teeth while working with my hands, the discovery of the pipe bits has been a No brainer. I can change out a bit frequently and cheaply. No more having to buy new stems or having my wife complaining about ugly pipe stems. A good find.

Excellent product - buy it!
I received these bits yesterday and put them on pipes that needed them. I am very happy with the size and how they feet on larger mouthpieces. The suggestion I have for P & C is to measure the diameter of these pieces and put it in the description. There are many selections available on online sites and information like this will be very helpful to buyers.

Great Product
I like the Softy bits particularly because I chew my bits and have some very sharp edged teeth. The Softy Pipe Bits have protected several pipes already. I plan to purchase more in future.

The Large are too big for my Rossi 626 which is the biggest of my collection
The Large bits are huge. They were too big all my pipes including my Rossi 626 which has a really big bit and it still slips around on that.

Great if you have a wider stem. I also like them because you can take them off easier than the standard size.

Just what I need
I spend a lot of time trying to remove tooth chatter from estate pipes and was looking for a way to avoid making new ones. These Softy Bits are perfect for the job and comfortable too.

Softy Pipe Bits
I love these bits, which allows me clinch my pipes a lot easer and not damage the stems. I have one on each of my pipes. I need an order of the small bits, but they are out of stock. The large bits are a little large for a lot of pipes and they move slightly on the stem,requiring miner adjustment when you are smoking. The small stems my be harder to get on most pipes, but they stay in place.

Softy Pipe Bits - A Great Way to Prtect Your Pipe Stems
These Softy Bits are a great way to protect your stems from chatter, tooth impressions, and oxidation of vulcanite stems, plus they feel good to bite down on. I use them on all of my pipes. Suggest ordering both sizes to see how they fit on different stems.

They are awesome!
They fit amazing on my pipes and are really nice to bite done on! Fast shipping as well!! Thanks P&C! I will always be a loyal customer! ^_^

No pipe should be without one.
Every one of your good pipes should have one of these. If you clench, you want to protect your investment from damage.
5 out of 5
Never a naked pipe stem!
Protect your investment. Even if you aren't a "clencher", you will put some dings and marks in your stems.

Pipes feel Better with Softy Bits
Have bought Softies quite a few times and they are particular comfy if you like acrylic stemmed pipes, giving me a soft firm grip of the bit ... The larger Bits fit my regular briars, but I get the smaller ones for my 3 cobs that have smaller stems ... small stems don't feel good in my mouth/teeth, but these softies give make them feel right in my mouth.

Softy Bits make Acrylic Stems Fit & Feel Better in the Mouth
I only buy pipes with acrylic stems, so I like the softy bit feel and they also allow the stem to fit securely in my teeth ... they grip more securely without feeling 'slippery' because of the hard smooth finish of acrylics and the feel is cushioned and not hard. I would use them on any type of pipe stem.

POW ....safe!
good stuff; salvaged one of my favorite chimneys

Very good
They work great for an 82 year old with no teeth to keep a pipe in their mouth. If you can't keep the pipe in your mouth, it falls out onto the concrete, shatters and you have to get another and break it in. bummer !

High Grade is right
Having tried the "high grade" standard, oversized, and regular pipe bits, I will try to note the differences. The regular bit protector is a softer material with more stretch to it and with a lower profile thickness that some may prefer, but tends to show tooth wear more quickly. The "high grade" standard is made of a thicker and slightly firmer rubber that has not shown as much wear so far. Size wise it fits a Sav unfinished pot like a glove and will wrap around a Sav Trevi 607 bit with more effort. The oversized "high grade" is of similar quality to the standard but about 1-2mm larger in it's resting/unstretched diameter. And of course, much easier on my teeth and wallet so far.
Customer Testimonials
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
JL of Grand Rapids, MI
Love these things, good on my teeth as soft as they are. thank you for stacking a great product. jimmy california
JY of Fresno, CA
Whats to say? They fit my MM cobs (Missouri Pride, Eaton, Legend, and Pony Express)
RP of Haltom City, TX
Love these- there is one on nearly every pipe.
CD of Bristol, CT
Should protect the bits on my better pipes. I don't like how the "softy bits" look, but they do make clinching more comfortable.
JW of Hazelton, ID
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.
KT of Katy, TX
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.
TO of Concord, NC
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.
BR of Lancaster, CA
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.
KH of Woodbridge, VA
These feel great in my teeth and stretched even onto my largest bits.
BL of Belleville, IL
Bits fit over my basket pipe and custom poker. So far holding up remarkably well and allow for some solid clenching.
TL of Jacksonville, FL
They make my pipe bits a bit more comfortable. I have them on each of my more weighty pipes.
JH of Neenah, WI
These are very comfy. I'll be using them on all my pipes.
DG of Weymouth, MA
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.
DW of Ponco City, OK
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.
PH of Deer Park, NY
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.
PB of Elmira, NY
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.
JG of Hot Springs, AR
These things are awesome. Anyone who like to smoke their pipes hands free without worrying about teeth marks, look no further.
