Default S.T. Dupont X-Tend

I used my 1st Dupon X-Tend last night and I'm real close at biting the 20% off deal at Cigarmony, how reliable are these lighters, how do they hold up over time? How about if it's windy?

Im not sure how many they have left but I know Chris I both picked our up at the same shop, there 90 bucks anf after tax your still under a bill...

To Darrell's questions.

Reliabilty... I've used my same x-tend for a couple years maybe three years, and it has never failed to light the first time and it has a nice flame. I do nothing to special to care for it, carry in my pocket, bleed it once a year, maybe..... ZERO problems. Only advice I would give is use good fluid, I use Vector,

Wind.... well I guess this might be the one area I've noticed that you might have trouble with, under normal conditions its fine... but Darrell if you live near the bay area I dont know, it gets sort of Windy there, Maybe one the the other Bay area BOTL can fill you in.

You cant go wrong with an X=tend... its a one time purchase.

Hi Darrell,

I have had 3 in rotation for nearly 5 years now with no problems at all.

If you can pick one up for $90 + tax, that's a KILLER deal.

Since Dupont's fire in Feb and TCG (colibri) not renewing their distribution of the St Duponts, there currently is no US distributor. I have heard the Davidoff or Dunhill is going to be the distributor which will most likely force MSRP on them, so get one while you can now.

I hope this helps

You sure the Tinderbox x-tend isn't the X-tend mini?

That's an amazing price for a full size X-tend. $100 off msrp.
