There is a difference. Noticable when taken out of the cello. I messaged them as well and they replied back explaining the difference.
Also if you notice the robusto cello have a label that says 5x50
The robusto extra are the ones with out the size on the label
I think the box press on these help make that 54 ring gauge seem smaller and more manageable.

David, KOTC, hopefully you see this too

Thanks. I was half kidding when I said it’s hard to tell the difference between the two....not that hard.
BUT, when looking at them in a desktop humi, amongst other cigars, without my glasses, and marginal lighting??
Then it gets tough...

...smaller and more manageable.

kind of an unfortunate description to use here in the testosterone room.
would you like a do-over? or use one of your lifelines?

I think I've depleted my do-overs and lifelines knuckle headFrying pan
But I do tend to find cigars less enjoyable once they start to hit that 54-56+ spot
Never been a fan of puffing on a tailpipe.

I gotcha. It is tough to decipher those 2 when in the cello though. Think I might have to invest in some of Ewoks cigar thongs to tell the difference...

A few days ago CBID put up a lot on auction starting at $ 69.95. No reports on the overbid topic yet.

Give it a couple minutes. It'll come up.

Whatever happened to the noon who opened with an overbidding topic a couple days back? Skeered off?

anyone have an opinion on the Room 101 CT?
I've had the Big Payback CT and liked it, but thinking of grabbing a box of these

I'm living in the medium strength range these days

It was Booth’s “budget” stick...
Probably better ways to spend your retirement cash....

Oops..
d'oh!
I was speaking about the Big Payback line........NOT the connie line.
Not sure how these would be, given that at this point they have to be several years old.......probably lost a bit of flavor, as connies don’t exactly benefit from long naps.

I can get a 5er of the payback chavala(?) for 16 and change shipped, did it a couple months ago and thought they were ok, not spectacular, but was shopping for a lower strength quality smoke.

or a 25 box of CT robs for 49 shipped but never had the CT line. have read they are a tick stronger and that would be ok.

I dunno. don't need anything but Spring is coming...

The big payback isn't bad... The idea was that it was a quality cigar sold at a bargain price as a thank you to the customers... We carried the 6x60 when i worked at the shop, and while I wouldn't smoke them these days because i despise larger ring gauge cigars, I preferred it to the 5x50...

As for the ct, I smoked them at a time when I smoked a lot of connies... Room 101 makes one of the worst smokeable Connecticut's... It's not an argyle or a rocky patel, but it's really pretty bad... Lots of hints of off flavors... Like wet dog... Or soured dish towel...

But for a hair above $3 shipped, might grab another fiver of the payback 5x50

For you free shipping lovers...

If you go to the mb3 place the Trinidad Khaki shirt is on special for $4.95, which qualifies your whole order for free shipping (or $5 USPS priority shipping)....

Not expecting it to be a shirt that I'll wear but I got a box of old Henry's with a free lighter (my functional lighter stock is down to one flickering torch) and it made more sense to spend $5 on a shirt and $5 on shipping rather than $10 on shipping...

You know, the RP Vintage 1999 was a pretty good connie and I don’t like Connie’s.
