Default Am I the only one?

Who thinks Romman and Starbuzz are BS brands..

Starbuzz: Smells great but lacks long lasting flavour. The flavour lasts for all of 10 minutes and then just disappears. Mine always come full of stems too.

Romman - Just hits harsh and :/ never would I buy this, on top of it's already expensive price tag.

I keep seeing good reviews but I guess to each his own... just curious if anyone else is in the same boat as me.

Starbuzz has always had long-lasting flavors for me, they last the whole session and sometimes longer.

Romman i just don't really care too much for. It doesn't come in 100 grams, and i havn't had very good sessions with it.

i never tried romman but i've had a few issues with starbuzz. It has a great smell while in the can and when it gets to the bowl and starts burning the flavor kinda changes.. however that being said, SB to me is one of the top tier brands cause of it's white peach and white grape (my favorite flavors from them). I also enjoyed exotic on the beach, fuzzy navel, peaches n cream, and orange. i haven't tried them all so i can't have complete judgment.

Certain SB flavors aren't the best, but the few good ones are GOOD ONES, well worth the price tag (if you enjoy the flavor). SB is VERY heat sensitive, of your loosing flavor too fast, you have either: old tobacco, too much heat, overpacked the bowl.

Romman is alright, but not worth the high price tag. They taste/smoke so differently because they are HONEY based instead of mol/gly based, which takes practice to smoke right.... thus are too $$ in the long run.

Starbuzz is a good smoke, but for the money its not really worth it. Occasionally i will pick up some blue mist or peachs n creme, but for the everyday smoke Af does just fine.

Romman smokes decent but it promises alot more then it delivers.

starbuzz is so not long lasting. ive never had it smoke the same for over an hour. it always starts to last less good 45mins into the session. romman just sucks tbh. the sweet melon was ok, the rest was crap that i tasted.

I like a few SB flavors that I've tried. Blue Mist was awesome!! I bought a few 50g pack of Romman whenI ordered a box of coco naras. The melon berry flavor was pretty good. It tasted like a jolly rancher.

Blackberry, White Grape and Plum I bought all 250g tubs of those flavor of starbuzz all of which gives me massive headaches, I was very disappointed. I do enjoy Strawberry Daiquiri every now and then. I'm more of an AF man myself.

I liked some SB at 1st, but then found the stems, the high price, and the sweetness just too much, and I have slowly moved to AF

I've never tried romman, but starbuzz is good. If it was cheaper, it would probably be able to hang with the best.

i dont have a ton of experience of romman, ive only had a couple different flavors. They arent bad, but too dry for my liking sometimes honestly.

SB is what i perfer more. If you use the correct bowl you can get it to last the whole session, not just 10 minutes. as for the stem issue, well... yeah there are some, but nowhere as bad as fantasia. some god awful stemmage in there. first bowl i ever packed of the stuff i pulled out a stem an inch long and it was thicker than a mouse cord.

id rather take the two over fantasia anyday!
