Default Really Good Torch Lighter?

Can anyone recommend a really good torch lighter? Nothing absurdly expensive but not cheap either. I've got a few Ronsons and they're starting to crap out on me little by little.

Thanks

The last one I bought was a Xikar Eris.
I picked this one because I liked the design and it has a punch.

I went with Xikar because of the lifetime warranty.

How much are you wanting to spend as I have a variety of lighters that are really good and one is a combo torch/soft flame lighter which works great. http://www.buylighters.com/Double-Fl...ter_p_693.html

Just got this last week and I love it...it's a soft flame but it works and looks exactly as my ST Dupont lighter...with the PING and everything. LGC ST Dupont like lighter

I have been happy with a $3 Ronson someone gave me. I prefer a soft flame, but the Ronson has be solid.

Might be out of your initial price range, but the Dunhill Trench Torch Lighter is just outsanding in every way. So amazing and a work of art.

I like the Lotus torches; they are not very expensive (relative, I know), they hold a lot of fuel and they are pretty reliable. This is my newest:

And I have had one of these for several years:


The nice thing about these larger torches is that they will light and stay lit in the wind (not a gale ).

I like the Blazer CG-001. They're the best lighter than I've owned.

Blazer is good but for something dressier I have a Dupont X-tend that is a really nice piece.

Rob at Taboo cigars has a nice selection of cheap torch lighters in 1,2 or 3 flames. I picked up a couple and they have been great so far.

That's the Jetline double torch from Rob & Patrick at Taboo Cigars. It's a bargain -- and well-made. Made in Japan.
For a dressier lighter, I like Nibo Space 6 and 7 torch lighters. Extremely nice construction and a great hand feel. Also made in Japan. joe196220 at Cigar America aka Slippery Rock Cigars has the best prices on Nibo double and triple torches -- $9.95.

I have two of these JetLine Vican lighters. They are triple flame and have a punch on the bottom. I got them at my B&M for $10 each. They have been reliable and they have a great flame.

http://www.neptunecigar.com/pr/jet_l...h_lighter.aspx

JetLine also makes a "Pocket Torch" which looks a lot like my Blazer Little Buddy (which is a GREAT lighter). I haven't used it, but it looks great and sells for about 1/4 the price of the Blazer. If the quality is as good as the Vican, and you like the visible fuel level, this could be great.

http://www.amazon.com/JetLine-Pocket...1204284&sr=8-9

I like my Ronson, but for a few dollars more, the Vican beats the crap out of it.
