What Is Your Go To Lighter

Recommended Posts

I use a ligne 2 table lighter, that must be 20 years old, everyday when im inside.  Maxijet when im outside and a minijet when im at a wedding/need a small lighter.  Love them all.

 

The wife got me a ligne 2 in rose gold with the double flame for christmas, I love it, but dont use it.  Far to nice to use, its like a piece of art.  Will use it one day.

I use the $3 Ronson Jet-Lites from Walmart. They are incredibly dependable and if I lose one or it breaks, no big deal. I've been using them for close to 10 years, and only one has crapped out so far.

ST Dupont X-Tend (aka MaxiJet) and when I'm feeling fancy a Ligne 2

But the Eagle Jet's are awesome too, especially for outside and lighting the firepit and fireplace LOL

I think I'm going to have to buy one of those Eagle Jet's off of Amazon. Looks like it's got a big reservoir and it's only $7.

I prefer a soft flame if possible as I find my cigars burn better. All other time I use my single jet xikar.

I have one of these. It's a good product at a reasonable price. I have terrible luck with lighters. I lose them or they die. The Xikar is holding up well and I like a single jet.

Yup, no issues at all with mine. I love the easy flame adjustment, clear butane reservoir and the single torch is ideal for touch-ups. Add the life time no hassle warranty and its the perfect lighter IMO.

I recently ordered a Prometheus lighter.  I went with the Ultimo X Black Lacquer.  I can't comment on durability, but I've been very pleased with it so far.  It's very premium feeling and has a triple torch flame that is directed to a single point.  Also has a built-in punch.  Not too expensive either at US $90.

My favourites are moody Chinese ST DuPont's... From a distance look genuine, heavy and even had the ping (until it falls off!)
Go to eBay and search memorial s.t Dupont lighter044944d63ea1d5256c3b3046edff359b.jpg

I have a bunch of lovely Dupont Ligne 2s... so beautiful. But I actually use this ugly little bugger nine times out of ten, because it works like a welding torch in a storm, and it sails through airport security all over the world.

My S. T.  DuPont, Xikar and Eagle were all lighters I found. I don’t own a lighter that I bought. That’s crazy. I only use the S. T. DuPont. I guess I’m lighter lucky. I wish I could find free Habanos

Bic or Kitchen Stove have been my go to's.  Dupont is sitting on my desk as I type.  It's been so long, I bet it needs a servicing.

My Dupont Defi Xtreme is a workhorse. Use it multiple times a day and can go days between refills. I use high altitude butane. Keeps from having to turn the gas up.

Vertigo Glock.  It has been very reliable and fairly inexpensive.

 

That is my exact lighter for the past few years. They aren't as easy to find anymore, but for between $9 and $12 each I'll keep a few stashed for one when gives out, one in the car and one in the travel humi. They will last though, the only issue I've had with them has been my fault- leaving them in a hot car one time too many will put a big leak in them. Being from KC I try to be a Xikar fanboy, but I have not had longterm success with their lighters.
