    Cello on for me. Less damage. 

    Life is too short to smoke bad cigars!!!

    Cello on for me also. I save a few used cellos for the uncelloed sticks i get.

    Cello for me just because of damage...I actually disagree with some of this article but it's all opinion. Aging cigars has always been a debate as well as cello on or off. But IMO three months does little for a cigar besides shipping shock.

    Am I the only one that goes commando here?  I feel so alone, and naked.

    If it comes with it I leave it. Really not a preference thing.

    I always remove the cello, expect for a few sticks that I feel that I might ship.

    Good article, I'm a cello on person.  I rotate my cigars from time to time and the cello protects them from my meaty paws.

    1st reaction:  "NOOO! Not the cello debate!  Again!

    Read article

    Good article

    Similarly, I've found that in the last couple years, I usually take the cello off the coming weeks likely smokes, and leave the rest alone.  I used to always take off all the cello on arrival. 

    Funny how things change.

    I like the protection of a cello.

    For my non-cello'd cigars I've found sticky "Labels" ordered from Kenco that I put around the foot of the cigars to not only label the cigar when I bought it, but to also protect the foot when I rummage through the humi's

    Hey I'm a rookie so I'm just trying stuff to see what works for me...
    My b&m guy tells me to build up a collection and age them in cello then remove cello a few days before partaking in the indulgence of chosen cigars. This works for me unless I smoke too fast.  B)

    So far I feel there isn't a wrong way...I've got a lot to learn.
    If there is a wrong way I will discover it because I find a way to screw everything up... at least once.

    It's all good. Cello, no cello. Long as the smoke is good, I no care.
