    How come a glass pipe will stay lit until all your weed burns out, even if you aren't smoking it, But a metal bowl will go out after it hasnt been hit a few seconds?

    I think that depends on the bowl. I've got several metal pieces that will smolder away if not capped. The Raydiators especially. I believe it's because of the additional air flow. On most glass pieces there's a carb hole. There isn't on the majority of metal units, I do have a number of metal pipes with the equivelent of a carb, those are the ones that smolder when not capped.

    The only one I've seen that actually "carbs" is the Model419. The Raydiators use the vacuum created by the airstream passing beneath the bowl, it provides an oxygenated hit. Surprisingly, many people use the Raydiators incorrectly and use the stem out the front of the piece for a "carb" and that's not what it's intended for. Just let the air pass through. It's also to do with packing the bowl. It's a pretty involved process, using a piece correctly.

    I have a stone pipe
    never saw a pipe with a carb, but I've also not seen many pipes(joints with tobacco are the common practice here)
    my pipe stays lit sometimes, other times I have to light it every time again
    and sometimes in between, it stays burning for a few hits
    but with hash on top it always stays burning till the end

    Why yes, yes I will use the powers of Necromancy to revive this. I would like to continue the Metal/Glass debate or discussion.
