Newbie Sampler Trade for Pipes

From time to time Puff members come to the Pipe Forum expressing their interest in pipe smoking but unsure about what tobaccos to try.

Newbie Sampler Trade for Pipes

The sole purpose of the Newbie Sampler Trade for Pipes is to give new pipe smokers an opportunity to sample some different blends of good quality tobacco for the first time in order help make their experience with pipes a positive one.

Trades will take place between New Pipe Smokers (NPS) and Experienced Pipe Smokers (EPS).

A New Pipe Smoker: Someone brand new to pipes or has had very limited experience with different pipe tobaccos.
An Experienced Pipe Smoker: Someone who has been smoking pipes for awhile, at least 6 months, and has smoked a wide range of tobaccos.

Note: Please do not sign up until you have access to pms. (membership 5 day and 10 posts)

Here’s how it works:

Rules and Procedures

-Experienced Pipe Smokers sign on to trade with a Newbie.
-New Pipe Smokers who want to sample some pipe tobaccos sign on and get their name added to the list.
-Once your name reaches the top of the New Pipe Smoker list, contact the first person on the Experience Pipe Smoker list to initiate the trade and to exchange addresses.
-The Newbie will post that they’ve made arrangements with the EPS and that a trade is underway.
-The NPS will send their end of the trade first.(and post that the package is on its way.)
-Once the EPS receives the package, they will send their package to the Newbie (and post that the package is on its way.)
-Upon receipt of the package, the Newbie will post that the package was received and the trade has been completed.
-The NST for Pipes Administrator will update the list and status of the trades on a regular basis.

Note: When signing up for a trade, indicate whether you go on the New Pipe Smoker (NPS) list or on the Experienced Pipe Smoker (EPS) list.

What Gets Sent

The New Pipe Smoker will contact the Experienced Pipe Smoker to make arrangements to send a 2oz /50g new/sealed tin of tobacco, for around $10 (not including shipping) from a vendor or from a local B&M. (or 100g, for around $20, if arrangements have been made between the 2 parties for a larger sampler). The EPS will request something easy to find, current production, that can be purchased from an online vendor or from a local B&M. Other arrangements can be made for what to trade provided both parties agree.

The Experienced Pipe Smoker will return fire with a sampler of at least 5 different sampler bags of good quality, name brand, tobaccos, roughly 4 bowls worth each (10 diffferent samplers, roughly 4 bowls each, for the larger sampler). Samplers should be tobaccos that the NPS can get down the road, for himself, as opposed to rare or discontinued tobacco.

The purpose of this trade is not to try to “out do” one another. Let’s keep it simple and affordable.
Keep in mind that this trade is just a friendly gesture to give a new pipe smoker a positive first experience with pipe tobacco.

We will limit this to One Trade Only for Newbies.

If you had ESP, wouldn't you know that you were signing up to be an EPS?
