Default Anyone have a good cigar lighter that won't break the bank?

I wish I knew the brand of what I have, because it has been really good, but it is time to replace. The store I bought it from doesn't have them anymore. Here are a few pics in case anyone knows the brand:

How big is the bank?

But really, matches or a Bic long neck will do the job just fine.

the problem I find with windproof is you cant see the flame outdoors in the daylight.
Especially on the boat. Always wind up torching a side too much.

Xikar, if you want dependability along with an unconditional lifetime warranty. No questions asked.

I like the Bugatti 420 lighter. Zippo style with a dual flame and hole punch on the bottom. Pull the insert out to refill or check level. I've had one for a few years now and treat it very poorly. This is one of probably 20 different types of lighters I have and is my favorite. You can find them for $25 online and if it goes bad, you can buy the insert for $15.

Seriously.....we now need an expensive "special lighter" to do what an ordinary match will do just fine!

I just don't get it! I'm beginning to think it's me!

Xikar torch. It has a clear cylindrical body that holds a ton of butane and is easy to see the level compared to looking in a little window. They are around $30 and an excellent torch lighter. You can get them with single, double, or triple jets.

I smoke some big ring cigars, and trying to light them with matches, regular butane lighter, or a zippo is an exercise in futility. It's easy to know when it's lit, even in bright sunshine, as you can hear it. Ever try to light a 70 ring gauge cigar with a disposable bic?

Not sure what brand mine are but they are similar to these. I keep one on the boat and one in the humidor.

I didn't realize that anything special is required. This is cheap and should work fine.

Add the least amount of wind, and matches or a BIC aren’t staying lit long enough to get a big cigar going without a bunch of flameouts. Indoors, is use matches almost exclusively, as my indoor smoking is strictly limited to at a local cigar bar.

Those work well. Just get into the shade so you can see the flame so you don’t accidentally burn half the cigar off trying to light if.

Use colibri butane and a cheap lighter will work great.

You don't smoke cigars do you? A match will not do the job! Funny though LOL!
