Default Thompson's De-Plugger (cigar cigars)


Greetings. Haven't posted in a while. Sorry about that. But I have
question. Thompson's Cigar Co. sells a cigar de-plugger for use on
plugged cigars. Has anybody tried using a deplugger? Does it work? Or
does it effectively destroy the cigar?

Die off tool from the boom when one would spend $10 on a cheap dominican
cigar just to find that it's plugged, and try to salvage it. You're better
off saving the money they want for it, and using a bamboo skewer. I saw a
50 pack in the grocery store for 50 cents the other day.

Out of curiosity, do you use/have you used a bamboo skewer? Every once
in a while I look at one and it just look HUGE to me -- I always imagine
it'd burst the wrapper to shove that ****er in there.

I still swear by the little 5" stainless steel "turkey pins" -- those
little pins you use to hold the skin-flap shut on a stuffed turkey. In
fact, I just put about a dozen holes in a plugged Padron, the other
day...

I typically stab from the head (end you smoke) end, just inside the
binder, and try to angle the pin so that, once fully inserted, it'll be
in about the middle of the cigar. Rotate, repeat, until it draws.

I've not had that happen, but they're thick enough and rough enough to
sometimes making pushing them through a chore that requires really
squeezing the cigar. Not a good idea with some of the really thin natural wrappers.


If I had those, I'd definitely use them. Thinner, smoother, less
resistance while unplugging, and they have a "handle" at one end which
makes twisting while pushing much easier.

Yup, used them several times. there must be different gauges available,
because the one's i have aren't much thicker than (looks around desk) your
average headphone wire? Best draw poker i ever used was the reamer part of
a pipe tool... long, skinny, did a great job.

Anything that starts with "Thompson's" should be considered crap.

Throw their catalogs away and tell them to stop sending them.

That company ****s ass.

If you're referring to the drawpoker, I have one and have used it with moderate
success.

It does help unplug the cigar without damaging it (centers the rod), but I've
often found that the unpluging is temporary and I have to repeat it.

It's worth it on an expensive cigar but not otherwise.

Good advice. Go with the skewers.

Likewise, I use the skewers. Do it slowly so you don't split the
wrapper or go out the side of the cigar.
