    I generally cut a 1/4″ off, test the draw, and take a second 1/4″ off if needed.

    Some make the cut on an angle to expose more filler. They say it doesn’t harm the burn. Sounds risky to me. I always look very carefully at the cap before cutting a torpedo.

    I always do a straight cut, and rather a careful one, to test the draw. I make another cut later if needed to improve it.

    I’ve enjoyed cutting torpedoes with a V cutter a few times. It seems to give me a great draw without worrying about cutting off too much.

    I haven’t found a torpedo I particularly enjoy. It feels like smoking through a straw. Is that what torpedo smokers look for? (Although I do appreciate the torpedo Nubs.)

    The amount of cut effects the intensity of flavor and can effect the burn. i have been experimenting with a V cut and it seems to work great!

    One of my favorites is a torp. I estimate and never had a problem. Carefully look at the cap, eyball 2/3rds, nevger had an unravel. On Pyramids start from the tip and go the point where the thickness of the stick starts to uniform and eyeball halfway. Again have never had an unravel and seems to always be ample draw I tried a wedgy on a Pyri and 3/4 down started to get build up. (coulda done it wrong but haven’t used a V since)
