Switched Bovedas

i went from 69% to 65. And boy that was a bigger job than I expected. Pulling everything out and putting it all back again took a bit of time.

    Do you put one in every cigar box that's in your cooler?

    No I spread them out in the cooler.

    I put a single 8 gram boveda in each cigar box.  This way, I can tell which parts of my tower might be running dry (wet is never a problem for me) and I can rotate them as necessary.  I'm not as money as Nick @Usaf06 yet, who just thinks of a cigar to detect it's humidity, but I'm working on it!

    I have been using Cigar Oasis in my wineador and seems to do the job, but I wonder if Boveda would be easier.  Any opinion either way?

    I think it would be a lot easier. I have 3 winedors with all boveda.

    That's be a lot of boveda?  Maybe a few 320s would do the trick

    So, why the switch?
    Since I went to 65% a long time ago, at least in my area, I find that I don't have a mushy cigar problem anymore. 
    You wouldn't think 4% would make much difference, but for me, it did.
    That’s my problem. I’ve been having issues with them being too mushy. Plus I had way too many in the coolers. Every one says there’s no such thing as too many but after reading up a bit more from Boveda themselves I am cutting the amount of pals I put in also.

    Did you take the time to rotate each cigar while you were in there Ricky? :D 
    You know it 😉

    Thanks for the feedback.  I may have to think about making the switch.

    I'll be interested to see what you think.
    Personally, I'm really happy with my cigars at 65%.
    I have far less draw and burn problems, than I did when I had them at 69-70%.

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

    I, too, have fewer burn problems since switching to 65% but, even at that, I find my sticks smoke even better if/when the RH occasionally drops to 62%. 

    Just my opinion..... 🤐
