i will smoke anything well made and well thought out, and anything gifted with good intention (NO pvnishers!), but given the choice, a 5 3/4 x 46 true CG would be my default. just discovering petit coronas, and learning the patience for lanceros, but a corona or corona gorda just shines to me.

I echo this, I sometimes enjoy larger smokes (ie 52+) but typically only if they have a pointed cap. I do not enjoy unhinging my jaw to smoke something.

A CG or smaller is more up my alley. I enjoy lanceros and petit cigars a ton. That being said, it's nice to have a variety of sizes for different occasions. I leave the larger ones for golfing or other longer occasions, where as smaller cigars occupy my everyday rotation

Love the survey. Very interesting. I would have thought the 56 or larger category would at least get some supporters... I salivate over a 42 gauge at any given moment...

NOT into jawbreakers 56 is just insane and hard to cut. 50-54 not bad so that is decond. I like the 42-46 by far the best. A PC size of 5x42 is my favorite size, TPC is next favorite, and I also enjoy a corona gorda 5 5/8 x 46 as well.

The thesis proposed by one of our brothers is that experimented smokers tend to like smaller ring gauges cuz they can get more flavor out of it, while few aficionados like bigger RG. Someone said that would be untrue, but so far the thesis is winning hehe...on the other hand, it was also said that the bigger RG are the ones which sell the most (casual smokers buy them a lot)

Wouldn't you like to know?
I gravitate towards 50 and smaller but if the cigar is good enough will smoke larger. This year I have smoked a lot of BHK 56's and a lot of maravillas. While not my preferred size they have been great do I keep smoking them.

This.

I'm hooked on CGs now. Can't stand the large ring gauge stuff any more. I won't purchase anything with a RG above 54, preferably 50 or less.

I love corona or CG so i vote 48 and under. Big factor for me is time, since i have to smoke outdoors rarely have a good 2hrs to enjoy some of the larger RG and sizes.

Preferably 48 or less but I will go up to a 54 or so. 56 and up are just too damn big in my opinion. At the same time I dont like to go below 42, lanceros seem almost as awkward to me as 6x60's. I'll gladly hop onto the 5 5/8 x 46 bandwagon. Corona Gorda is my vitola of choice.
