Hard spots while smoking

Been smoking for about 10 years , I enjoy a variety , Rocky , Guhrka , My Father , Romeo
Of course the Monte;s just to name a few
Why is it when smoking from time to time the cigar gets a hard spot while smoking
Is it a vain , stem?? Am I doing something wrong

    The key word to the cigars we smoke is HAND rolled, meaning rolled by a person.  As Forest Gump stated "**** happens".

    Handmade product, it's going to happen from time to time.

    Sometimes a gentle massage or a piercing (with a cigar draw tool) can help, sometimes aging helps, sometimes it's just a lost cause.

    Yabbut... this schidt doesn't just happen by accident, and it's so easily avoided. Here's an amateur roller's view:

    1) Don 't let your leaves twist when you bunch them. 
    2) Don't think you need a stick hard as a rock.

    I used to make a lot of tight at the pointy foot of a fecto. But the body of a stick, or anywhere on a parejo, it's just super easy to avoid a plug. Home rolled, you are way more apt to make a soft spot than a hard spot. You pay good money, you want la torcedora to make them so they draw.

    A fair number of Cubans seem made plugged... the whole length. Their rollers are prolly rated on how much leaf they can stuff in a given stick. Silly. But if your stick's plugged just in one place, I say it's prolly a twisted entubado. Entubado is where you roll each leaf into a tube, then combine the tubes into a bunch. Twist that bundle of tubes and you have a plug.
