Is there such thing as a 100% chemical free tube? Not a fan of the brown ones
Vera Cruz Nocturne ... the tube is a "paper shopping bag" shade of brown. It's unbleached. So your choices seems to be either become a fan of brown colored tubes, or convince yourself that bleached white tubes aren't so bad after all.Is there such thing as a 100% chemical free tube? Not a fan of the brown ones
Spring back would be ok for me.....but that is too moist for my stuffer.I use my tobacco when it will spring right back from being compressed between my thumb and fingers, a wad that weighs about 3 g is a good sample size. If it holds the impression of my thumb for a second or more, it's too moist and will act "sticky" when injected. Is your tobacco a "ribbon" shred or more like a flake?

Does the powermatic cope with moist tobacco?I started out with a plastic one then got frustrated. Then I got a Top O Matic and after a couple years got frustrated with that. So last week I got a Powermatic I from WLT and am really happy with it. Making cigarettes used to be a chore and now it's fun. So I'd skip the Top O Matic and spend the $25 more.
