    I've got 2 humis (a WM and a Savoy), a cooler and Tupperware for my sticks but I can't get any of them lower than 65%. My cooler is for special smokes that I'd like to keep at around 60%, just can't get them that low. What are you guys using to get down to the low 60's? I've tried KL and "beads"...

    So this evening I decided to add a little distilled water to my two 60% Heartfelt tubes I keep in my Daniel Marshall humidor. The RH has been reading around 59% the last couple of days, so I thought I would add some distilled water to both the top and bottom tubes. It's been about three months...

    Hey guys, I'm having problems with my second humidor. For some reason it is only keeping 60% to 62% RH. Is this ok for cigars since I have a hard time bringing it to at least 65%. I'm even using a shot glass of distilled water that I keep in my humidor + the humidifier. I did all the test...

    Just curious, guys: how many of you keep your cigars at lower humidity ranges, and what are your takes on it? I hear some connoisseurs keep valuable ISOM's at 55-60% My storage container's staying at 60-61% right now, I'm wondering if I should add more h2o, or keep it where it is, if 60% has...

    So, for christmas my wife got me the dispicable me dvd and a $50 spending limit on cigars...... $200 later...... lol! So I over shot the budget by almost $150 but I did get her permission, the reason this happened was I went to my second favorite b&m (My first is over an hour away so I don't go...

    OK, colour me confused here. I bought a 1 pound bag of 60% RH Heartfelt beads, put 'em in two mesh bags and hydrated about 50% of each bag roughly a month ago. Since the day I got them my coolerdor has been rock-steady at 65%. I've tried everything and I just can't get the RH down. I removed...
  8. Cigar Questions
    I need to place an order with Heartfelt and was thinking of adding some 60% beads, to put into a cheap travel humidor, to use as a dry box. Would keeping a few sticks at 60% accomplish the same thing as dry boxing?

    So, we all know that once onld man winter rolls along many of us have problems keeping the RH in our humidors up. It seems as if while ost of us would prefer to have humidity @ 65-70 RH, we are only able to maintain about 60% My question is, are the cigars ok at 60%? Mine seem dry. Pretty firm...

    desktop with puck 50 stays 70% in summer but doesn't get above 60% in winter, should I just leave it like this or try to do something? I do notice my smokes are getting a little dryer but they seem to smoke fine.

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone uses 60% HF beads here? I've noticed that occasionally I still have symptoms of cigars being a tad bit too wet, even at 65%. I also know many guys here do the dry-boxing method to prevent this, but it's too dry in my house to do that (probably around 40% maybe...

    I finally got my first humidor as some of you know, however it seems I'm having problems with it. After spending a few days seasoning it, I maintained a constant 65-70% rH according to my digital hygro, however after adding the cigars that were in the freezer for about 48 hours, it seems I can't...

    Looking for some help with my situation here. I'm using a new 25-50 glass top cigar humidor (about 270 cubic inches), a 65% Puckifier (50 cigar size), and a Western Caliver III hygrometer (spot on measurements compared to my Oregon Scientific weather station). Ambient temperatures fluctuate...

    I have a pretty straightforward question. I have a slightly leaky humidor. I stopped most of the airflow with masking tape thanks to tips from some of you guys, but I guess I didn't totally fix it. With a 65% boveda pack my humi is stable during the day when the house is 77 degrees and 63% and...

    I would be willing to trade my beads (60%, I had to upgrade to 65%) about 4 ounces. I am open as to what the other end of the trade would be, and am willing to take pretty much anything (I would like a new lighter, just a suggestion). PM me if interested.

    I ordered a half pound of 60% RH beads... i think that may be too low though :/
  18. Cigar Questions
    I've noticed a few sites advertising 60% humidity packs or beads (I can't remember which). If anyone keeps their cigars at this level how did it effect the taste, burn and construction? Would you recommend it? Lou

    A while back I mentioned to Viper that having beads at a lower RH would be nice for those of us that tend to "dry box" cigars before smoking. Last week in the midst of several newbie trades he and I were chatting and I brought it up again. "Your the one" was his response. Turns out he had...
