Arrow Athey non-filter tubes

76 mm, flattened, box of 400, low cost.

They are a pain to open the end, I use a tooth pick. Eyesight is my biggest challenge. Makes for frustratingly slow injection sessions, with practice getting better.

With my TOM set up for 100's, I get tobacco sticking out the far end and not filled on the nozzle end. I trim the end that I smoke. Works well enough.

To me, they have a nuetral taste, and burn well. An option to papers (cheaper than most) and a roller.

I thinks many tobaccos shine without a filter, like PS Norwegian for example, or anything turkish. Even though they are a pain, I just ordered 3 more boxes.

I have no pain with these. Blow into one,squeeze creases between thumb asnd fore finger, slide onto nozzle. Almost as fast as using a tube.

Default love/hate the athey

Something else I don't like about these. When I carry around a bunch of these, I can't control the tobacco from falling out the two ends. Not good when I need to stick one end in my mouth.

I like the non filter, but more and more, a oneses/twoses thing.
