xmacro:We've had this discussion before - I still like the big rings much more than corona's and buy 54+ whenever possible, but I'll be happy when the full-body fad is over. Enough with the cigars who's biggest selling point is "NICOTINE! AND LOTS OF IT!!". Bring back the balanced cigars.
ztanner25:I will not be upset when this whole big ring gauge craze is over. Seems like that's what goes on sale more since that's what the current demand is. I'm looking forward to some nice coronas being offered as daily deals more frequently!
bigjohn125:I started smoking cigars last year, so a 50 rg is small to me. I have not had a cigar smaller. I don't have any problem with larger rg cigars. Maybe I am missing something.
fla-gypsy:I prefer the 50--56 RG. Not really a fan of smoking a straw or a limb. Length around 5--6.5 Balance is much more important than strength but I find many cigars just to mild.
xIcedGuardianx:Love um all. Some are better in different RGs..I'm on a blend by blend basis. Just not into long cigars cause I smoke super slow.
phobicsquirrel:I didn't know Big rings were a fad. I mean I don't smoke 60's all the time but 54-56 is still small. Anything under a 48/50 I feel like I'm smoking a black n mild. It just doesn't feel like a cigar.

It just doesn't feel like a cigar.thats because you are (as many of us are) a newer smoker. go back 5-7 years and a 50 ring was about as big as you would see. there were few smokes over that and when they were they were special sizes. go back even further and it is almost unheard of. if you want to look at what most brands had in their line ups look at the vitolas that Davidoff has. those are very classic sizes. not only is the ring gauge a fad but i feel that the over-the-top power is as well. 5-7 years ago the El Cobre was one of the strongest on the market. now it is about "average" when it comes to power. The JdN Antano was over the top power and now it is almost the standard.
kuzi16:i have smoked them. i just enjoy smaller rings. there are a few companies that dont offer the smaller rings as often. there is no LFD LD maduro Lancero or lonesdale. the only thing they have smaller is a petite carona. Camacho triple maduro doesnt come in a size under 50. i would love to see that in a 6.75 x 46. there are many cigars that i want in a smaller ring that arent offered. i usually top out at about 52. on rare occasions ill have the 60.
