crack on wrapper
edited April 2018
was looking though stocks and saw this crack on my 2004 camacho liberty, was wondering if i should smoke it that way or maybe try to repair it , if so whats used for repair like this, it doesnt go all the way around, just halfway
Personally, I'd smoke it.
But there is arabic gum or something like that that you can repair it with.
I think guys have even use pectin. Can probably use a sacrificial cigar for wrapper material. LOL!
I'd probably just move the band to that spot until it's smoked to that point.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.
Atmospheric pressure and crap.
Have some Chap stick, pectin, or cigar repair glue on hand.
I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

I buy powdered pectin from the grocery store which you can find in the caning and baking isle. I take the powder and distilled water and make a thin paste and use a small paint brush and glue and “paint” everything back together and fix it. Give it a few weeks to dry back out and then they smoke just fine and are much more robust and less likely to come apart while smoking. I normally set broken or cracked cigars to the side until I have a half dozen or more then fix them all together and set them in a small box in the cooler to slowly dry out and get ready to smoke again. Here are a few pics of ones I’ve repaired to show what I mean...
"When walking in open territory bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask them to stop. If they do not stop, destroy them."
You can also take a discarded band and pot around it. Just reset the glue a little with your tongue and hold it together until it holds. Works great.
I just hold my finger over the crack as I smoke and it looks like I'm playing the flute .win
