    Hi

    I am having a conversation with a friend of mine about the possession of the button on the e-pipe, he is for the top button like the hammer mod and i like that you can have a side button in a variable wattage pipe.
    We need some help please .. when does the people say .. top or side?

    Top of the bowl feels like the natural position on a pipe for me.

    okay being an ex pipe smoker i thought the side will be better because you never touch the top

    if you look at a old used pipe you can see a pattern from the user and how it was held.

    Top. You kinda choke the draw if you vent your thumb over the top.

    If wanted to choke it a bit i put the pipe in my hand and close my fist with the top of the bowl at my fingers so i can regulate the air by moving my fingers closer or further apart
