    Cut paper-thin coins with a cigar cutter, rub out, pack normally.

    Thats cool, so what are the differences between rope tobacco and regular tobacco, if there are any? from what i have seen on the internet is it stronger?

    If you're not used to strong cigars then ropes can be overwhelming, tread carefully. Do not attempt smoking on an empty stomach ;)

    Am currently on my first 2oz of a rope (Brown Irish Twist) and I was impressed enough to order more of it as well as some Black Irish Twist. Not crazy about the nicotine hit, but I do enjoy the taste.

    I use a cigar cutter too. Once cut, treat it as you would a flake or medallion.

    SG Best Brown No 4, Black XXX, or GH Happy Bogie here. Sippin tobaccys. Great substitute for Viagra. I dry the rubbed out coins for an hour or two. If you're new to butt kick rope, draw slow and let the smoke settle in your mouth. Don't fuss to much if you find yourself re-lighting. It may need some more drying out. If you get dizzy, set it down for a half hour or so. A hiccup is a good sign. It means you're about to enter Nirvana.

    I have found a little bit of chocolate to up your blood sugar right before smoking goes a long way.

    Damn, Brown Bogie didn't do that for me. I feel cheated. Ah, I'd only get into trouble.

    My only experience with rope has been Brown Bogie. I love the stuff but I'm used to strong tobacco. Go slow is the main thing. It can zap you but good.

    I coin mine with a meat cleaver, works on the thickest tobacco, great for carving flakes from a plug.

    I haven't ventured into the rope scene yet. I think I will have to add that to my next order for sure!

    Yea, they have a smorgasboard. They sell ounces in the bulk sections. You can get one ounce samples of several.
