Default Tube suggestions

So I'm getting into making my own cigarettes and was wondering about recommendations on cigarette tubes. I'm currently using the Gambler light tubes and don't like them. I've heard that the Zen blues are pretty good. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

a lot's going to depend on a) your taste and b) the tobacco you combine that tube with. THere's a flavor dynamic between the tube paper and the tobacco, combined with your particular taste that is going to determine what you find the most pleasing.

Personally, i went with the Gizeh tubes, then with Mascotte, as to me they were the most neutral in terms of paper taste. Best suggestion is to experiment to see what tastes best to you

I just finished my last of 10 boxes of Gizeh special tip extras. I really like those tubes. I may order a case of them.

Default Gizeh vs. Mascotte

Hi! I just joined today, but have been researching tubes online an have a few questions. I would like to know where I can purchase Gizeh silver extra tubes and Mascotte x-long filter tubes. I have found some Gizeh online, but they are ALWAYS sold out. I have only seen Mascotte xl tubes offered from foreign countries. I'm currently using Hot Rod extra smooth filters for the 22mm filter with a variety of tobaccos. I am also blending tobaccos, as many of the "value" tobaccos are bland. I am not a fan of TGS, but I'm finding that OHM is tolerable right out of the bag. As I have been experimenting for several weeks now I've learned that full flavor tobacco tastes really good. My problem is I want the 25mm filter offered in the king size tube to smooth things out a little.

The best luck I have had is with the german seller paperguru.de for the Gizeh and they carry the mascotte also but not sure if they have them in the 100 size. I have placed several orders with them and had great service.

Lately I have been using Hot Roda full flavor 100's. For a cheap tube they have a relatively neutral flavor. Out of a box there will also be like ten or so tubes that are made kinda screwed up. I have tried Gambler, Tube Cut, Penny Pinchers, Premier, and Zig Zags. Out of those I do like the taste of the Hot Rod the best. I cut the 100's down to 90mm because I like the size if the filter and they work better in my roller that way.

I agree the Hot Rod tubes are pretty neutral in taste. The box I just finished also seemed to be slightly smaller in diameter than some other tubes making them a bit of a pain to slide onto the injector. I also needed to line up the glue seam with the rubber holder on the injector or I would get the occasional tear-out at the end of the tube.
Taste wise they're fine but stuffing them took me twice as long as using Zen or Golden Harvest.
