Rocky Patel Vintage Segundos

Looking for some input on these. The vintage 1990 is becoming one of my favorite everyday cigar, but I can not afford $10/stick for a daily cigar. Instead of checking for deals non-stop I was contimplating getting a Mazo of 2nds.

Anyone experienced these with some feedback?

First, where are you paying $10 bucks a stick for a RP 90?
Second, I have never been able to tell any differance in the seconds. From what i understand, they are second due to visual flaws that most people (that would be me) would not notice.

I don't think i paied $10 for an RP 1990's. The seconds are the same but a few flaws that we probably can't tell. THey smoke and taste the same as the firsts to my.

Well, $9 for singles. Don't have the bank to get the enire box, and haven't found any deals on 5-10. But it sounds like the 2nds should be one of my next purchases.

Re: Rocky Patel Vintage Segundos

I have had problems with the RP seconds in the past. I received a bundle and there were major draw problems. I had them replaced with another batch and the same thing happened. This was a couple of years ago so hopefully they have had better quality control.

I do remember getting great prices on auction. Just my 2 cents.

Ditto to what Kelvin said.

Re: Rocky Patel Vintage Segundos

The prices on the auctions were on the regular production, not the seconds.

Re: Rocky Patel Vintage Segundos

You are right, Phish. There were 4 different 5-packs there last night. I don't know what they went off at, but it was at $15 a pack when I last looked. Don't think you can get them much cheaper anywhere else.

Re: Rocky Patel Vintage Segundos

They have the seconds in 15 packs right now. Look at the lots closing today and you will see them. They are in the quickies section.

Thanks guys; now you got me bidding on sticks again. Are you happy?

Yup, cigarbid.com. The most evil of all evil sites.

Yep and your a bad person for talking about it. I went to Cigarbid last night and $90 later I felt ashamed...lol. Couldn't tell my wife.

That site is super dangerous/addictive. I wonder if they have a cbid rehab somewhere!

Cigarbid got me and my dad as well. In 5 minutes I spent $92. And I am putting things in bags with pillows waiting for my new Humi to season.
