Once in a while I bust out a cigar on the golf course. There’s something about it that helps my game a bit when struggling. Perhaps it takes my mind away from the game and distracts me just enough to play a little better. There are many obvious problems with smoking cigars either on course or off the course. Your clothes smell. Your gear smells. Your hands smell. There’s a lingering cigar taste in your mouth. Add those to the tar, carbon monoxide and second hand smoke and that’s why I don’t bust them out more than 3-4 times per year.
Now there’s an option which eliminates all those problems above, but still allows one the enjoyment of puffing on a stogy. LOGIC makes an “E-Cigar” or electric cigar called THE CUBAN. They claim this electronic cigar is “a way for golfers to enjoy a cigar on teh golf course without having to worry about smoking bans, disturbing other golfers and dirtying the course.”
On The Course
I was intrigued and volunteered to try one out. Lighting the unit was easy. Just pop the small rubber cap off the end and start puffing. The taste was a little like vanilla flavoring. I really liked the fact that the smoke didn’t hurt my eyes or make my hands and clothes stink. I REALLY liked that I didn’t have that nasty post-cigar taste in my mouth for the next 12 hours.
The weight of the unit is heavier than a typical cigar. Takes a bit more jaw power to hold in the mouth. The fact that there’s no ash is nice. Once during every cigar I seem to ash on myself, which isn’t great. I also like the fact that you can’t burn yourself, or your gear when you put the cigar down to hit a shot.
At $19.95 the E-Cigar may be the answer to smoking bans on the course or elsewhere and you don’t smell nasty after. Of course the experience is a little different than a real cigar since well, it isn’t a real cigar.
This cigar is pretty cool, and safe to use on the green. Thanks for the post. If you’re looking for other stuff you can use for golf, you can check out the ball targets from [spam link removed] you can use for practice when you’re indoors.
