More cigars Sanchez!
jeez, i have to ask - where are y'all finding PLPC, Boli PC, RG panatela extras for under 4 bucks a stick???
I know you wouldn't, seriously, openly ask for vendor sources so I'll let you know. ;)

From a friend of an Uncle's second cousin's brother's wife's nephew. :D
 
I'm a big fan of some of the 'unbanded and bundled' Rocky Patels from Famous and CI. The RP Vintage Seconds from CI kick a** and are under $3 a stick for most sizes. They are also constantly on C-Bid, so there's always a deal going.

I also love the 'Rocky Patel Factory Selects' from Famous. Really nice sungrowns and robustos are about $47 shipped for a bundle of 20. I'm flying through a bundle of these and I'll soon be ordering another. I'll also be trying some of the other sticks in the line (e.g. maduro, corojo).

What is the difference of the seconds and selects?
Are the vintage seconds exactly what they say vintage seconds?
Which vintage?
Also what are the selects comprised from?
Everything else?
From what you posted it sounds like its possibly SunGrown seconds i doubt it though???
If so Ill be gettin' some soon as I think SunGrowns are the best blend RP makes (personal preference) and getting seconds would be a gift from god to me as RP has such a high standard they put out some GREAT seconds but it sounds to me the factory selects are more likely to be short filler.

I've responded as best I could in caps below. -Chuck


What is the difference of the seconds and selects? IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FAMOUS STICKS, THE SELECTS ARE COSMETIC REJECTS (SLIGHTLY FLAWED SUNGROWN WRAPPERS), BUT CONSTRUCTION AND DRAW ARE THE SAME AS THE FIRSTS. NOT SURE ABOUT THE SECONDS.
Are the vintage seconds exactly what they say vintage seconds? YES
Which vintage? EITHER 1990 OR 1992, BOTH ARE AVAILABLE. AGAIN JUST COSMETIC WRAPPER ISSUES. I'VE NEVER HAD A CLUNKER IN ANY OF THE BUNDLES I'VE ORDERED.
Also what are the selects comprised from? DOMINICAN-NICARAGUAN LONG FILLERS WITH SUNGROWN WRAPPERS
Everything else?

THEY'RE NOT SHORT FILLER
