I’ve been smoking both NC and CC for about 4-5 years now. One of the things I’ve noticed concerning the application of the bands is that the NC ones come off so much easier. NC come off with minimal effort and don’t really need to be heated much. But the CC ones? Man, some must be made of 1000 layer paper and I can only grab one layer at a time. I’ve tried letting the burn get close to help loosen the glue but even that doesn’t help all the time. Most recently happened on a Dip No 2 and when I tried to lightly pinch the end of layers 2-1000 I ended up cracking the wrapper. Luckily once I got it off it still smoked fine. So far all the veterans out there, are there any good tips you can send my way?
