CAO Gold band hate

Absolutely love CAO Gold's, but what is up with the new bands? About 20% at a minimum are tearing up the wrapper when they come off.

    Try the lighter around the band of you like taking the band off immediately like I do. I get my single or triple torch either one from About a gods distance and go around it a few times and it will remove it every time with NO PROBLEM and no tears whatsoever. Good luck 🍀

    I just had one the other day with no issues, but I do not remove my bad until the 2/3 in as the warmth helps for easier removal.

    I always start the cigar with the band on, then as it gets warm, if the band is in my way of enjoyment, I'll remove it. The heat from smoking will loosen the adhesives of the band, making it less likely to damage the band or the cigar.
