I have come to the conclusion that there is no better option unless you have eliminated the extra "rollup" from the smoke. Pipes in my opinion are the no brainers. They tend to taste better as well. The only downside to pipes are maintenance and wear and tear. I'm a classic dude so I went for style but to each man is there own opinion. All in all, the best choice is your preference. Don't conform, do what makes you happy. It's good for your health.
