Comparison of Maiker 100mm and Escort King-Size tubes   We covered the 100 mm Maiker tubes in the Injector section of this issue to such an extent that little more can be said that has not already been said. However we would like to repeat our concern for the quality of these tubes as they are manufactured in Asia and appear to be of somewhat inferior construction. We also noted some discomfort (harshness) when smoking identical tobaccos and comparing the taste side by side with various other tubes. However in all fairness, we have only had these tubes for a short while and have seen only a few boxes of them so we ask our readers, who choose to try them, to let us know their opinion as well. The 100mm length is a welcomed innovation and as you can see in the diagram at left they are definitely longer though not quite 100mm (97mm to be accurate). They are also thinner in diameter, which we feel is going to be a necessity for this length to be popular with the manufactured cigarette crowd. In fact, as more companies explore the 100mm tube market, we feel it inevitable that the final industry standard be even smaller in diameter than these. The box they come in is the nicest in the industry and should set a standard for improved packaging of all future tubes containers. They are certainly worth a try as the Maiker Brand injector, necessary for their use, provides for a low cost experiment, and the tubes, given their additional size, are fairly priced. Remember, these tubes will work on NO other injector as they are smaller in diameter and won't fit on the injection nozzles of other manufacturers.

Let us know what you think - RYO




EDITOR'S NOTE: These reviews are solely for the convenience of people of legal age who already smoke, are trying to cut down on smoking, wish to spend less money on their smoking, want to roll their own cigarettes from high quality tobacco, and, in general, wish to have a far more satisfying, and economical smoking experience when compared with smoking pre-manufactured cigarettes. We, in no way, encourage people to smoke. Further, we prescribe to a sane, more logical approach to smoking that involves common sense as to quantity coupled with a strong desire to manage the habit until it becomes an occasional, freely chosen, diversion, that can be fully enjoyed with minimal health risks. Finally, we strongly encourage those who do smoke to take it outdoors, or to appropriate environments where tobacco can be enjoyed away from those who do not smoke, most especially children.  We do not sell tobacco or related products from this site; We distribute information about our perceptions of the quality of what is available and where it can be obtained. If you are under 18,  it is illegal to buy tobacco and you should immediately exit this site. If you do not smoke, it would seem illogical to start.
