It’s pretty passive and sort of allows White to gain a nice position out of the opening. I would not recommend it. Perhaps it can be played U2000 or as a surprise but I prefer the Accelerated Dragon.

 I am 1465 

And I never face issues in it.

For example if you check out games of Alapin you may say it's drawish but check out games of Svesnikov he played alapin like Magnus.

I am not experienced like you but  I like crech Pirc

I understand it well.

Can you explain how it's passive?

People play French too it looks passive and yeah it is but in practice it's still playable among strong players.

So I am curious to know where Czech Pirc becomes passive?

Well it allows White to keep full control over the center and less space. French can be considered passive but Black has ...c5 with counterplay in most situations. But Czech Pirc is playable.

It is playable, but a bit passive. The good thing is that is little known, and few players will know how to get an advantage on the opening, but the moment you meet strong players, you are likely to suffer a lot...

But, if you like it, and are willing to study lot of time to improve its weak points, you will have a good weapon for your repertoire.

Yeah right little known line but also effective.

It's my favourate and I am learning it more in depth .

I know in some lines white got advantages because of the bishop pair,

But all openings have pros and cons. I play for learning and middle game and endgame knowledge matters too.
