Nice! and, I see what you did with the capping. Clean.These 4 seem like it's the first batch I've gotten a good consistent bunch along the cigar and with medium firm draw. PHEW. I wasn't quite grasping the concept of how tight (or not tight) to bind the bunch and then what work to let the mold do. I watched every video, even bought Bobalu's course ("just roll the bunch in the binder like a cannoli or anything else..." LOL) Just wasn't gettin it. Took a break from molds and did a bunch of newspaper molds for a few weeks and thought I would never return to the classic molds again; every draw on every cigar was just about perfect. But back at it again. I think using the newspaper molds helped my brain in some way realize what and how the mold functions as I roll cigars. Seeing Bob squeeze his bunch before binding really helped me to; I can feel where the soft spots might be, and of course I got Bliss runnin' on repeat and Robert's voice rising in my ears...

They were always my favourite commercial cigar for their economy, strength and flavour, to answer your second question.
