I got some PA binder leaf, ive never used this as a binder before. I got it because it said its neutral in flavor and its a good binder to work with. I got some fillers that have sweet cocoa notes and some san vincent lingero to not take away from the seco/viso topped with habano 2000. I guess I'm having buyers remorse because I'm thinking I should have got a sweet Connecticut binder but in my early days of rolling I believe my first 20 were Connecticut and I had difficulties using that binder.

I don't think you should beat yourself up about it. The PA doesn't affect the balance of the cigar as much in my opinion, so it lets the filler and wrapper express themselves unaffected. I prefer it over Connecticut which has more of an acidic profile to me.
The PA is it easy to work with. Strong enough to wrap pipe tobacco rope.
