Which stands for: Negligible, Respectable, Commendable and Superb. Yeah, I think that's gonna be it.

    Ideally, I guess, the results should fall in a bit of a bell curve but we shall see. I have a feeling there are a lot more N's than S's but that "skew" can be attributed to an overabundance of early and dubious noob picks. lol.
    That's what I hate about the "100" point scale: Do you ever see a 68? Hell, I don't think I've seen lower than maybe 88?

    Do what works for you.

    SoCal. Exactly! The part of the scale ever actually used is maybe 80-100, so only 20 pts. really, or not much more. Would be interesting to hear what other Bums here use, but also, I think my own system may work out for me. Thanks!

    IMO, it's to not step on any toes. Their funding relies on cigar advertisements. Even if a cigar is bad, 88 sounds a lot better than 2 out 20 or whatever. Smart, but deceptive.

    @CentralTimeSmoke . Good point! Still can't fault 'em though because of all they do to support our hobby. And besides, all mags. seem to work that way! lol.
