Are they serious?
62 ring gauge.
This is one of those cigar that I'm not even interested in considering.

Is this appealing to anyone and am I missing something with this large ring gauge thing?
There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    It's similar to the whole huge watch trend. I've always liked watches and had a pretty big collection but got rid of most of them and right now only have a couple left. Right about 40-43mm was the usual size and then companies started making watches in the 50mm plus sizes and have seen some that even go up to about 63mm. The two I have left are the same style with different movements and are 52mm in size. Being a bigger guy the smaller sizes just look kind of silly on me and I prefer the 50mm size range.

    With cigars I was the same way and when I first got back into the about four years ago I got into the bigger ring gauges but honestly have drifted toward the Corona size more and more since I got back into cigars again within the last month or so. To me you just get more flavors in the smaller ring gauges and you also tend to have less construction and burn issues as well which is an added benefit too. With more and more companies going back to making Corona and Lancero sizes we'll see how long the big chunky ring gauges stay around but I think there is a market for them like there is for the bigger watches.

    A regular 60 was bad enough, but now in a Torpedo shape?

    Doesn't do anything for me. I was herfing with a friend and told him to pick something out, he picked up a Airbender Lancero looked at it and told me that he would be embarrassed to be seen in public with something like that, I just smiled. Apparently it's a status thing with some people.

    Torpedo makes more sense to me once you start going 60 plus rg's. At least it tapers down so you don't have to smoke like you're wearing a ball gag.

    I agree from a smoking perspective, but the phallic resemblance would not be for me
