I found this wrapper to be thinner than most wrappers in the bunch. Be very careful about applying too much moisture when getting ready to roll because it will tear fairly easy. I haven’t got as much flavor to my created blends all that much but im going to create something that will help it shine. The width of the two parts are fairly narrow. I would tell you to cut wider strips for larger cigars to cover the surface are. I wouldn’t recommend it for inexperienced rollers. I would tell beginners to work with Ecuador corona or Mexican San Andres for a more elastic leaf. It’s much easier to work with.
