What's your ring gauge range?

I decided quite a while ago that I don't like anything over 52 rg. And in the past few years, I've been going mostly for smaller ring gauge cigars. Been on a lancero and lonsdale kick for a while now.

A LOT of cigar lines don't have any smaller rg sizes. What's up with that?

Do y'all like horse d*ck sized cigars? 6 x 60 and such?

I don’t like the huge ones.

I’ll make an exception on the occasional good 54 but yeah. 52 and under. Anywhere below is good with me. I don’t know many smokers who really seem to like the huge ones but they’re still rolling a lot of them

I’ll end up smoking the ones I have but I don’t dig them

50s pushing it for me. I'll do a rob, but I rarely buy boxes. There's some I really like in the high 40s low 50s but coronas, panateles, lonsdale, and lancero my jam.

I'll turn down pretty much anything beyond 54. Couple buddies that dabble in cigars are always offering me these d1ck thick 60rg fat fuxks and I pass. One guy asked me about uneven burning cigars at my last track day. Gave him a rob, told him first step is to not smoke tree trunks. Didn't get into storage n stuff, he buys from a shpo and smokes in a day or three. He was impressed. I think it was a Genesis, he'd bought a few $10 fat gars.

Yeah, 52 and below. Really, 50 and below, but I'll go up to 52 for some stuff. It helps if it's box pressed. I find that box pressing makes the 52 more manageable. I also like perfectos. The tapered end like on a torpedo makes the larger ring gauge more manageable. Same with smaller 5 inch belicosos. I've been getting into lanceros. I like lonsdales, always have, but they're a rare breed nowadays.

When my wife saw me smoking some big @ss cigar the first time, she said exactly what I was thinking. "That's not phallic at all. Not at all phallic the way your wrapping your lips around that big brown shaft and sucking on it."

Perdomo seems to have gone all in on the not-at-all-phallic cigar sizes. It's a shame. My eyes glaze over, and I move on when I see 54 and up. Might be a good cigar, I'll probably never know.

My favorite size is lonsdale but not many labels make a cigar in that size. Used to go for any lancero but have been off them for a bit now because of time and how slow you have to smoke them ( I just don't have enough time to generally dedicate to them anymore). I'll go to a 54 but prefer to stay under 50 really.

Jamie likes them 60 rg cigars Anthony, that's what gets his motor going!

There’s only one 6x60 I like. Not naming it because its already getting bid way up and I can’t get any ha ha.

This guy who “knows the industry” told me the more tobacco in a cigar the more it costs to make. So cigar companies will use cheaper filler tobac in 6x60s. Seems like sound logic. Wonder if there’s any truth to that?

48 to 54 is about it for me. 52 is just about perfect.
Although, I will smoke an occasional cigarillo in a pinch. The AF Cubanitos are not bad for a quick break or when it's too cold to sit outside for very long.

Had he not been such an avid camper his farts would probably be heard around the world. That internal massage must be devastating.
