50 RG mold will do it. Robusto Deluxe is made at Tabacos Rancho Jamastran in Danli, a Honduras factory that produces Baccarat and Camacho cigars and others credited by Christian Eiroa.

Ok I should know this but I don’t.
Using a cigar mold isn’t something I’ve done much. However, while enjoying a rubusto


I’m admiring it’s construction and I would like to start making my cigars in similar fashion.

What size mold shall I use for a rubusto?

Also, can any of you identify the cigar shown in the picture??

Thanks!
A robusto is a 5x50. The 50 is the hardest mold to get since it's used in robustos and toros, the most popular vitolas in this country.

Since I started this thread to document my rolling journey, I owe it to myself and everyone to share that yesterday I was commissioned to roll cigars for a major movie production. It’s incredible the network I have built through social media and how the cigar and pipe community really come together. Since the studios have a ban on tobacco products, I have to use an herbal tobacco substitute as filler and will be rolling a bunch of cheroots that will be highlighted with a hero character. I’ve also been tasked with creating a rope/twist. I am beyond stoked for this and hope that this opens some more doors as well. This is the push I needed to get a business entity established and get a business license so I’m not rogue anymore.

Just wrapped my first cigar this past weekend at the PA Barnsmoker with help from an Archetype rep. Bunches were provided. Same as the Axis Mundi. Don’t think I did half bad. Probably have gotten a little better if the wrapper wasn’t cased on the spot. I’m sure I didn’t cut the wrapper leaf like it should be. I could see this being enjoyable at some point in the future when I have more time available. Let it drybox for 2 days before throwing in the wineador. Excited to try it just not sure how long I want to wait.

Congrats on the epic news!

I have mixed feelings about not being rogue any more, though. ;)
