Default Camel Straights = Camel Filter ?

I had a pack of camel filters which I defiltered , and besides the length I didn't see a huge difference -- if any at all.

Today I got my usual pack of NF's , and compared to a filter defiltered and couldn't notice a diff in the tobacco besides the fact the filter maybe had a little less.

They have camel 100's on sale buy one get one half off....

Is paying $2 more per pack for NFs , or getting the 100's and cutting the filter off with a scissor a better idea???

Am I crazy or are these the same smokes ... Once the filter is off.

To me, the Camel NFs taste better than the filtered versions even
with the filter off.


I don't know if it's true, but I was under the impression that when
Camel changed their tobacco blends a few years back they did not
change the blend on the nonfilters.

Anyone know anything about this?

I would love to get more info on this because the price of cartons is $20 cheaper for the filters , and I'm thinking of getting a carton of filter 100s and defilter and pack them ... But don't want to realize two packs in that there is something not the same

Iron , that's what I THOUGHT.

After doing another test . I have come to the conclusion that a pack of camel 99s with the filter removed is the same exact thing as a camel nf pack.

If you cut the end off the 99 20 will fit perfectly in a NF soft pack.

There is no reason to buy camel NF's for 8-10 per pack , when you can get Camel 99's - 2 packs for ten bucks , spend 2 mins with a scissors , and have the same exact thing . The only reason I think they still sell NFs is for the older crows who wouldn't think to do this method .

I randomly smoked 4 cigs - 2 99's cut and 2 NFs . Mixed them in a pack smoked all 4 and there was 0 difference.

To all camel NF smokers just try this -- it will save you a lot. I am going from $100 a week to $40-50 for the same smoke by the same company.

Just cut the 99s and notice how they fit PERFECTLT in a NF SOFT pack , and look exactly and taste exactly the same .

Camel NF = camel 99 with no filter . Period

The original Camel nf are still the same blend as before.The filtered versions are the revamped blend.I prefer the original over the new blend.If you look on tobacco documents you can find the info.I do buy Camel filters with the coupons they send me but prefer my Lucky Strikes.The new blend Camel is sweeter and not as harsh as the original.I like a strong smoke.Dan

Dan I don't like the filters with the filter -- but when removed with sissors and packed -- they are identical to me . And the fact the filter 99's are half the price of NFs , I can sacrifice 10 minutes and precisely cut and pack the 99/s and have essentially the same thing.
