After a conversation with Timbo on a different thread I thought it best to begin a Roll Your Own and Make Your Own thread over here.

Whether you use a little pack of Rizla papers and a pouch of Bugler baccy to RYO..or a state of the art electric tube stuffer and the latest, greatest Daughters and Ryan tobaccos...the result is that you're smoking finely cut tobacco in a paper tube. A blend that is bland and weak in a pipe takes on a totally different character in a tube. I gar-on-tee.

So I'm carting over a couple of posts and will be adding more.

Keep reading.

Timbo asked if I was joking (re MYO)...

No joke. I use a Powermatic 2+ machine. Rambak, Vera Cruz, Beretta or Zen filtered tubes and so far either Stokkebye Turkish, Danish or Amsterdam dual purpose cut tobacco or one of the awesome blends made by Daughters & Ryan. The tobaccos taste totally different in a paper tube than a briar, and even tastes really different in different tubes. I don't inhale. The machine produces "mini pipe tobacco cigars" that are literally factory quality. It's awesome.

Tim asked if a power or manual roller was better...

Okay. Electric vs manual. Mind you, I'm paraphrasing about twenty web pages and reviews I've pored over. I've only ever had the little plastic doohickeys that actually roll pretty well with the typical papers, etc. and my present machine...but everyone sez that as far as the end product goes...a good machine is a good machine. Manual works just fine. The electric Powermatic 2+ is just the best and easiest and most durable power system. Re durable we're talking ten thousand smokes...that kind of durable. Significant.

For manual there are a couple of highly regarded machines that always come up. One is the Powermatic Mini.

https://www.amazon.com/Powermatic-Mini-Cigarette-Injector/dp/B00IPJXDL6

The other, more famous, is the Top-O-Magic T2...the battle tank of the rolling game.

https://www.amazon.com/Top-O-Matic-T2MAC-T2-Cigarette-Machine/dp/B002SR9PPY/ref=sr_1_12_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1494076215&sr=1-12&keywords=cigarette+rolling+machine

However you roll, the most important thing is the tobacco blend and the paper tubes. Which tube you use can totally change the nature of the smoke...just like a pipe.

So there.

PS: do a uTube search on this stuff. Lots of vids on the machines, if you can stand to watch the idiots doing the movies. Not an encouraging lot. lol

Thanks for the offer mate but I've still several hundred papers around from when I used to roll coffin nails. Will get myself one of the small hand rollers and start from there. 

Thanks for sparking some ideas. 

Cheers 

Tim
