Dang, if you could raise it to around $130 then you could possibly find a ST Dupont Maxijet somewhere (mini jets can be found for under $100 but I feel like fuel runs out a bit fast for me).

I have the padron maxijet lighter, and it's probably one of the best buys I've made related to cigars (besides the modus). The dang thing has an awesome flame that doesn't stutter or flicker. It is quality goods and I won't ever need to buy another lighter...until I misplace it.

I'm sure there are some cheaper lighters that perform just the same, but dagnabit if I'm going to be smoking cigars to ash, I may as well look dang good while I set them ablaze!

I have chased a couple of mini-jet (DuPonts) on CigarBid. Noticed in one of the close up photos of the lighter a stick say (China), so I back off because the Xikar are made in China with Life Time Warranty.

Thought DuPont's were made in the old country, (Europe)??

True Xikar's have that life time warranty which is pretty great!
I think the Mini's and Maxi's are put together in China now but I may be mistaken. Either way it's still a great quality product in my eyes.

It's sad that anything tagged with "Made in China" makes an item seem of lesser quality . But I assure you that these lighters are quality gems!

Having almost every named brand type lighter....I still hold the Xikar Exodus as my favorite. I have 2 of them...one in gun metal and the other in chrome. It holds a good amount of butane but what I like best is the wide adjustable flame that lights quickly thus saving fuel. It's wind resistant and it's warranted for life... I only paid $30 and $28 .

I really haven't given lighters much thought. I bought a Colibre Wildcat last fall for $10 but, it didn't hold enough fuel for me. It worked great though. I received a Bugatti lighter from @Yukoner in a Christmas bomb that I've been using ever since. I would absolutely buy another one if it ever failed.
I haven't tried any others so I don't know what I'd be missing.

After exploring the DuPont Web-site last night, I think I am leaning toward a Xikar because of the lifetime warranty. DuPont is only two years,and if you read there warranty is has some escape clauses in it.

I am big on deal with warranties, as I have Craftsmen Tool from years ago were a ratchet quit working, and craftsmen replaced it at no cost, no hassles.

Buddy just send in his Black Single Torch Xikar that looked like it was pulled from wreckage of Blackhawk Down, the adjust wheel that adjust the flame fell off. I told him to sentd it in to be fixed, and it was replace, and back in less than two weeks. The guy is a retired Ranger so it could have been there during Blackhawk Down.

I already have my current favorite, a Prometheus Magma II.

I've debated getting an St DuPont, and I have seen the MaxiJet online only one time for $99 shipped, didn't jump on it as I was at work and just planned on buying when I got home. TOTALLY MISSED OUT!!! Maybe another day in the future, so I hold out for a great deal to pop up.
