At the moment I am breaking in some new Falcon Hunter bowls, in the past I had the standard dark stained bowls and to the best of my memory they were a pain to break in, they smoked and tasted green for quite a while before they settled down. The new Hunter bowls I'm breaking in now are smoking fantastic from the first bowl and very neutral tasting, I can actually taste and enjoy the tobacco as I break in the bowl and know it will only get better with time. Have any of you noticed a difference between the different bowl types when breaking in a new bowl? Do you prefer the Classic or the Hunter bowls? I like the Hunter bowls myself. Thanks for your input and I look forward to hearing about your experience breaking in Falcon bowls.
