    I have been using my trusty Ronson torch lighter for a few months now but I have seen a lot of talk about these soft flame lighters. I don't want to spend tons of money on one of these like I have seen others recommend so I started looking around and I have seen 2 options now. One option is...

    I have a soft flame butane cigar lighter that I enjoy very much. Unfortunately, it does not have a fuel window to gauge how much fuel is left. After a while, the flame starts to change heights / flicker (it goes from big to small to big to small). I assumed that it was because the fuel level...

    Morning Gents, I am, unfortunately a cigar lighter colector who can't say no. I have had many torch lighters, unfortunately most of them Colibri so they now live in the land fill. Now, the few torches I have are split between the few Coblibris that lived and Xikars. The last year or so, I...

    I'm interested in buying a nice soft flame lighter. I currently have a Xikar Axia double flame torch but I use the cheap Bics to avoid scorching the foot. I have read a couple of threads out there that recommend the Xikar EX (Exodus), but what do you guys have in rotation or what's on your...

    I recently purchased a Xikar Exodus w/ Black Finish. I love the lighter, it works well. However, I think I'm experiencing the classic "Operator Error" situation. I've lit about 6 cigars with them. I can't quite seem to get an even burn on my cigars. Am I doing something wrong or do I just...

    The only lighter I've used for my cigars has been a single torch lighter. I've seen some nice soft flame lighters (Xikar Exodus) and I want to learn a little more about them. I was wanting to know if there was any benefit of a soft flame vs. torch lighter or vice versa? Or is it just a matter...

    I've taken advice from this board from way back when it was Club Stogie, and as a result have a fistful of ljet flame ighters. My favourite is definitely the Dupont Maxi. Despite having some lovely lighters I have yet to really fall in love with a soft flame lighter. Can anyone therefore...

    I am looking at buying a new lighter and I'm leaning towards a soft flame. I have a xikar executive and like it but who doesn't have more than one lighter. If someone could help point me in the right direction for a good quality one i'd really appreciate it. I can't find a company that makes a...

    I couldnt find it anywhere so I hope this poll doesnt already exist. Do you use a torch or a soft flame to light your cigars? I personally toast with a torch then light with a soft flame.
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    A couple of days ago I was reading a cigar blog and the author mentioned that he preferred a soft flame (such as a BIC or Zippo) to a hard flame (torch lighters) for lighting his cigars. He didn't really go into detail and although everything I have read has said to stay away from soft flames...

    I was using my Rocky Patel table torch (5 point) when the windproof flame went to a soft flame. I tried bleeding and refilling with no change. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  13. Cigar Accessory Discussion
    When you search for Cigar Lighters what you find are pretty much all butane torches. How are they better than common (really cheap) Bic soft flame lighters?

    After smoking the Casa Torano (which had an excellent construction), it seems almost surreal that the Exodus would be so soft and burn unevenly, bu... Read the full review here: Car. Torano Exodus 1959 Robusto Cigar Review - Soft Construction with Cocoa Beans

    Mouth full I know, but I have searched all around, and have yet to really find anything. I am looking for the Ronson Jetlite of the soft flame world. It needs to be reliable, cheap, and refillable with the same butane canisters that I use for my Ronson. By cheap I mean sub $15.00 on the high...

    Mexican food is one of my favorite food groups. Ok I know it's not a food group, but it might as well be because I eat a LOT of it. I love everything about it.....refried beans, carnitas, carne asada, rice, salsa, etc...I'm making myself hungry just thinking about it. :dr One of my favorite...

    I've mentioned it a few times, and I guess it wouldn't hurt to mention it once more: I freakin' love Taboo SFBCs! :dr These cigars truly deserve more than just a plastic wrapper to keep them bunched together. These babies are beyond the "bundled cigar" in terms of flavor. If the Twists can...
