I'm for 'em.

    I like to try anything that deviates from the normal parejo. What about the inverse open/shaggy foot?

    You can make that yourself with a good knife. It allows you to really know how much flavor you’re getting from the wrapper. I’ve done it a couple times.

    I'll have to try it on a cigar I'm more familiar with. I hate to do it to something that I don't have multiples of and I've only recently started buying that way. I remember Patrick saying he's done it with a guillotine cutter and light pressure to just get through the wrapper and binder

    I had one of those that was nearly 3 years old earlier this summer in Poudre Canyon with Pops, it was fan-friggin-tastic!

    I understand the closed foot thing, and getting a chance to taste just the wrapper.  But every time I try to light one a flaming part flies off and burns a hole in my shorts. 

    I'm starting to come around to this way of thinking. I used to like a closed foot cigar because they're so easy to light and give you a great taste of the wrapper with the first puffs, but the falling burning leaves aren't great for clothes and herf dogs.

    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    Strangely enough, I like a shaggy foot. I like the opportunity to taste just the filler. Once the wrapper starts up, I feel like i get a better tate of that as well.
    Most of the taste is wrapper anyway. I want the subtle complexities in the filler to show.
