The heck with those JB Weld cobs. That zip-tied meer was one of the prettiest pipes I've ever seen. And I'm not being sarcastic. It was really a sweet looking pipe in my eyes. But I tend to favor well-loved pipes that show their character. I much prefer those over pipes that are kept show-room clean.
The zip-tie meer was a great smoker too. There is a reason you "fix" a cracked stem with a zip-tie and keep smoking it. You don't want the down time to send it off to be banded. (Being cheap helps too.)
