    I have one in my office. Just soak the sponge, shake off excess, and give it an hour in the box alone before you place the sticks in. You'll be just fine. It does a good job for short-term storage.

    Thanks for the info!
    Then I hope it will do a good job for my trip for the F1 race in Italy![​IMG]

    Not sure if the foam trays in yours are removable, but in my larger travel humi I have a flat humidity sheet that works great, bought from here:

    A Boveda packet would also work in a pinch, although if you're just keeping cigars in it for a couple days I wouldn't even bother with humidification.


    Thanks for the info, and yes they´re removable!

    [​IMG] Smoking a Padron 45 Maduro right now. What a champion - luscious, velvety mouth feel, perfect draw, flavor complexity. I don't want to do the work I'm supposed to be doing now because it will distract me from this smoke.

    ^I've had that in my humidor for 6 months now but probably won't smoke it for another 6. The last 26 I had was excellent.

    ^^ Where do you put the cigar whilst swinging? Whenever I smoke during a round, I generally just put it on the floor in such a way that it doesn't go out or set fire to anything: I haven't found a stylish or convenient solution yet.

    perhaps not stylish, but definitely convenient:

    though it being plastic makes me naturally a bit weary.

    hey Brian, how'd the PSD4 treat you? I still haven't touched any of the ones you sent me (nor have I touched any of the Cohiba robs. In fact, after that first Fonseca No. 1, haven't hit any CCs since).

    Next smoke: RASS, PSD4, Cohiba Robusto, Siglo IV, or Drac?

    They are hit or miss now. I've had good ones and bad ones from this box (box I sent you). This one was good.

    I would choose a RASS from your list because I am working on the best box of them I have ever had, TEB Mar08.

    Smoked a lot today...BHK52, 06 Monte EL Robusto (meh), 98 Punch Churchill, 04 Romeo EL Herm. #2, 10 Monte EL Grand Edmundo. '10 Monte and Punch churchill tubos were the best of the lot.
