@waikikigun, you have a much simpler approach to the imperfecto (TM) than I : View attachment 35921Granted there was a lot of trimming after the photo, but it worked alright. It took me like half an hour to wrap. I almost cried when I smoked it.
I think of that shape there as more of a salomon than an imperfecto. If you've seen my salomon wrapping vid then you know I once upon a time had a very complex way of wrapping those.

Yeah, fair enough. This one was smaller, like 14-15cm (5 1/2") and had a LFD knock off chisel tip, so it was a Frankenstein's imperfecto, haha.

Edit: I have seen your salomon video; it was likely that and some of @MarcL's work that inspired me to give it a try sans ropes, so to speak.

Great looking band & roll there @webmost !
Just a quickie to test a new blend & band.
Coronas are such a snap to roll.

But lookee here: Don's wonderful bronceado wrapper getting ready in the conditioning chamber wafts an entrancing aroma:

I enjoyed another one from the archives today. KFC binder and Corojo seco and ligero. Wrapped in Ecuador Cameroon and rolled to a corona-like vitola. The Kentucky fire binder definitely behaves better after a few months acclimation in the humidor. The burn only started to go wonky near the head where there is more binder material. The mapley aroma of my particular batch of fire cured came through nicely. 68F27BBA-0FBF-428C-B310-A70538E3AC23.jpeg86A352D2-7FBF-4E21-A661-FB50519795BF.jpeg
