Review all 18 types of 4 brands of sticks exclusively for Glo Hyper Plus!

Here, I compared all 18 types of exclusive cigarette sticks of Glo Hyper and Glo Hyper Plus.

Glo Hyper Plus appeared in January 2021 as an upgraded model of Glo Hyper. Since then, although design variations have been added, there are no functional changes. With a device that uses a thick dedicated stick, you can also enjoy the boost mode that can raise the heating temperature of 250 ° C to 270 ° C. The heating method is a peripheral heating method that heats the stick from the surroundings.

There are three types of brands that can be sucked: Lucky Strike, which appeared in November 2021 and became a hot topic, Neo, the main brand, which is characterized by its strong taste, and Kent, a low-priced series. The global menthol brand Cool (X Neo) is also available as a brand within Neo, so there are actually four types.

Lucky Strike (regular type)  290 yen / $2.55 each pack(12 pieces)

Rich taste regular Lucky Strike Dark Cigarette

Rich taste regular Lucky Strike Dark Cigarette
Fragrance: ●●●●●, Rich: ●●●●●, Strength: ●●●●●

A regular type of Lucky Strike, a representative brand of American Tobacco, which is a perfect match with Marlboro. There are two types, dark and rich, and the packages are similar, but this dark cigarette has a stronger taste.

The brown filter, which is the first stick for heat-not-burn tobacco, excites the mood, and along with the wild aroma of a leather jacket, the rich and crispy taste of tobacco leaves comes. Steam has an irritating cigarette-like nuance, but the strong smoky habit will choose people.

In addition, gel technology is used to maintain the taste. In addition to promoting a natural taste by not molding the tobacco leaves while crushing them, a finely cut glycerol sheet is mixed in to match the heat-not-burn tobacco so that the tobacco leaves can be tasted thicker and longer.

In addition, when you taste it in boost mode, the spiciness increases and the throat gets irritated. The umami will increase, but the smoky smell will become stronger and the butts will also smell.

Lucky Strike Rich Cigarette with moderate wild taste

If you feel that the habit of “Lucky Strike Dark Cigarette” is too strong, this “Lucky Strike Rich Cigarette” is recommended. The smoky taste is modest, and the moderate wild taste is just right. The taste is mild but delicious because it is well-balanced. This also uses “gel technology” and has a long-lasting taste.

On the other hand, if you taste it in “boost mode”, the taste will only improve in the first half, so it will be delicious, but in the second half, the balance will be lost, and the odor of the butts will become stronger while smoking.

When tasted in “boost mode”, the spiciness and umami become stronger, but at the same time, the smell becomes ferocious. The butts are also very odorous.

However, when you taste it in “boost mode”, the spiciness comes out in front and the back of the throat is crunchy. The swelling umami after the heat has spread to the whole stick is delicious, but it is regrettable that it will finish in 3 minutes because it is in “boost mode”.

[Summary] For those who want to enjoy smoking casually

The “Glo Hyper” series, which has a reputation for low device prices, has an intermediate price range of 520 yen “Kool-X Neo” and the industry’s lowest price of 500 for 20 cigarette sticks. The circle “Kent” is lined up. In addition, the latest series “Lucky Strike” has an irregular number of 12 pieces, but when converted to 20 pieces, it is 480 yen, which is also easy on your wallet.
What you can see from this is that “Glo Hyper” is easy to use. It’s fun to choose a high-end model from another company and smoke a high stick, but the cost is still high, so it’s not easy to wear one outfit.
The stick for the Glo Hyper series seems to be a little scented in the recent trend, but it can be said to be one of the powerful options for “people who just want to enjoy cigarettes casually”. Of course, cigarette users who like the brands “Lucky Strike,” “Cool,” and “Kent” are the best candidates to switch.
