Default Re: Packing techniques for different tobaccos?

honestly tangiers is the only real difference and even at that ive found its not that big of a deal. the bowl is more the determining factor of it.

i have heard that AF needs to be packed a bit harder with the newer cut.

it all comes down to personal preference. i have packed SB as light as i could and then pretty freaking dense and there is not much difference, maybe a little more flavor and harder draw.

i have been fluffing my tobacco in to the bowl and the tamping it down just a touch to get a good sized gap (im smoking nakhla all the time though) and it smokes well. harder to get harshness and decent flavor
