Mazo vs. Bundle

JZerbyJZerby Posts: 122
And since I'm posting questions this morning, I have another one. I see cigars all the time labeled as "mazo of 10" and "bundle of 15". Is there a difference between a mazo and a bundle or is this just an interchangeable term used depending on the circumstances and marketing?

    Interchangable as far as I know. Either is used to basically say "you're purchasing a box amount of cigars, only without the box".

    Simply means cheaper to me in most cases.
    I love to find good cigars in bundles or mazos.

    One rep told me that mazo means handful or bunch, so often they will refer to 10 or less as a mazo and 10 or more as a bundle. How true that is, I have no idea.

    if im not mistaken a bundle is a packaging option from a manufacturer. a mazo is cigars that were put together to sell after wholesale but before retail.

    i could be wrong and i have no proof it just seems like i have heard that somewhere.

    Are you sure you don't have that backwards? Seems as though marketing (and practice) would lead me to be believe it's the other way around.

    a bundle is usually a packaging set aside for lower costs sticks. they are released as bundles.

    mazos are usually in 5s and 10s and from what i have seen are not budget cigars but premium cigars that many dont/cant buy boxes of but they want more than one. a box is broken up, and sent out as mazos.
    again, i could be wrong. i dont really know but that was my thought.

    can you explain what you are saying so i can see it better?

    That awkward moment when it's easier to search Ccom with google, than Ccom itself. Well, I was confused as to what a "mazo" was. Guess I know now.
  • I liked all the speculative answers that I had to chime. Mazo = bundle in Spanish. How the term is used I will leave to the speculators out there.
