Anyone know how they are measured? Wide side, narrow side, diagonal? Just curious.

    This ones easy - whatever the ring gauge would normally be (ie: 50 ring gauge for a robusto), you just throw a ^2 behind it and VOILA! Box pressed ring gauge. :-D

    Is that 2 you mentioned plus or minus? If you put a round ring on it, the measurement would be across the diagonal. I read that there is actually less tobacco in a box-pressed of the same ring gauge than there is in a circular stick?

    if i am not mistaken, it is the ring from before it is pressed.

    Ok then soooo........ how do they measure a Salomon or the San Latano Oval?

    Salamo e is generally refered to at its widest point, oval is totally new and I'm pretty sure specific to only that cigar.

    With the Oval it's the same as a box-press. It's the size before it goes into the mold. With a perfecto/salomon (or any figurado) it's the RG at the widest point.
