    This woman caps the same way I often do lately, and I've never seen it in a video before: first go like you're cutting a Dominican single, but then put a casquillo-cut cap on it, too.

    Very nice!
    It looks like you grow your own leaf. I did that once and it was a lot of fun but the leaf flavors were not great so now I buy my leaf.

    Thank you, I tried to grow tobacco last year but that was for my pipe, I made some cigars of it and as you say, the taste was not great. This year I´m growing only "cigar tobacco" and the plan is to let the leaf rest a year after fermentation. I´m also buying tobacco but it is very expensive to import to Sweden.

    The last cigar factory in Tampa keeps rolling.

    I wonder if they have tours? I'm going to Ybor in a few weeks. After going to Tabanero this would be a fun stop.

    In case you missed it, Maks had to re-post his video. Here it is.

    I guess you'd call that the accordion method of rolling? Nothing special, she just folds them over into her hand and tears off the bottom and then redistributes the torn off leaves at the end. Seems pretty simple. Rolled into a double binder and NO glue to the binder.

    Blend... pretty simple also.

    So this is a tad diff from my normal videos. Typically when I am streaming on twitch.tv it is various games that I play: PUBG, go, stuff like that. But tonight when I was done gaming and it was time to roll my sticks for the next couple days I decided to keep streaming, so this is a very raw video of me rolling my personal smokes, with all the troubles and fuck-ups of a typical roll session. Very low-fi.

    Edit: I've deleted the above video from my stream archive and instead uploaded a shorter edit to my yt:

    Thanks. I've uploaded a color-corrected version, just two of the four rolls from that video, one with the triple, one with the "Davidoff."

    Started using the rip trick for my torpedoes last night, works very well! Also can help with shaping the head in a normal bunch

    I forget how much faster accordion bunching is compared to entubado. Thanks for the video @Hopduro, but turn your camera next time. :)
