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.

Perfect for a clench! Maybe just a bit thick. Awesome protection from the chompers.

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.

Larger than you think
Bought these for my big ben 508 blackline. They are to large, but do fit. However they slip around and are so large my jaw is in an uncomfortable place. High quality product, should provide years of service.

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!

I bought some of these Softy Pipe Bits to use on pipes while I'm driving. They work great when clamping on the mouthpiece and helps keep my pipe in my mouth and protects the mouthpiece from hard clenching.

Product is fine, as expected. Not as thick/strong as some pipe bits I've used, but perfectly adequate. Protects the pipe bit, and provides for a more comfortable grip (on smaller bit pipes).

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.

Each one lasts 4 months, depending on your bite. A good way to extend the pipe you smoke while driving or working.

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).

Glad I didn't order "Large"
These bits are perfectly fine, but I was expecting smaller bits, not the same size I can buy at my local shop. No worries, they work fine on most of my pipes. They just don't fit my churchwardens.

SOFTY PIPE BITS
I have been using Softy Pipe Bits for a long time now. There are a couple of things I like about them. First, I can really clamp down on them with my teeth and it doesn't feel like I'm going to break a tooth. Secondly, it keeps bite marks off the stems as long as you change them before there are any holes in the bits.This helps me to feel much more comfortable with my pipe. I really do like Softy Pipe Bits very much and will continue to use them with all of my pipes.

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!

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.

These were a good find
These pipe bits were a good find... They really save a lot of wear and tear on the mouthpiece of the pipe. The only only mild drawback is you will need to replace it after about 3 to 5 weeks depending on how much you use the pipe.

A small hole has formed in the stem of my pipe on the mouth piece. The pipe bit covers the hole and holds tight to the stem for a comfortable hold between my teeth.

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 small 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.

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.

I'm a softy for softy pipe bits.
I tend to clench hard while smoking my pipe, so Softy Pipe Bits give me the cushion I need to protect the bit on my pipe stem and reduce stress on my jaw. Softy Pipe Bits also come in small sizes, and that's great because I can use them on my smaller pipes and corncob's as well. Thank you Pipe's & Cigars for carrying softy Pipe bits in all their available sizes.

Softy Pipe Bits Small
I use both the large and small pipe bits to protect my pipe bits from teeth marks or scars. They do a good job protecting my pipe and aid in holding my pipes since I am now a clincher. The larger bits are used on the larger pipe stems and the smaller bits for the smaller pipe stems like my M/Ms. I wish, I had both sizes 50 years ago and the older pipes in my collection would not be scared.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
