Unboxing and initial test HERE

I have been using this lighter exclusively for the last two weeks, and have to say it’s very nice! The one thing negative I had to say in the initial unboxing and testing proved to be inconsequential – the thumb position used on the trigger. In real use, you simply don’t use it long enough to ever notice it as an issue.

The lighter remained consistent and easy to operate at all times in all conditions. What I’m particularly impressed with is the pinpoint accuracy of the flame. Usually the flame tip is broader, while this comes to a VERY sharp point. What that does it make it incredibly easy to do touch-ups, without roasting any part of the wrapper you don’t intend on hitting. Of course the downside is it takes a little longer to light very large ring gauges, but it still works fine.

The biggest plus for this unit is the reservoir size and window. It goes on and on between refills, having only a single flame and needing very little light time. The capacity window is a huge plus, assuring you will never leave the house with a near-empty lighter by mistake again.
