While the bowl is certainly no bantamweight, what really stands out about Savinelli's "EX" rendition of the 804 is its sheer length. It's kind of like seeing a '77 Lincoln cruising past: sure there are probably some big leather seats and plenty of leg room in there, but mostly you notice just how long
it all takes to do that passing-by. Of course, as those who tout the improved smoking qualities provided by a longer shank will tell you, the more shank there is, the smoother the ride.
