I'm looking for a butane pipe lighter for $60 or less that will actually light every time and have a chance of standing up to a light breeze, if I cup my hand around it.

I was looking at the Colbri Connaught II, which his large at around $60. But I can't find any review of it. smokingpipes.com had an Ever Torch model recommended, but again, I can't find any other reviews of it. If I have to go to an Corona Old Boy, I will, but the price is a bit stiff.

Can you help me.

I haven't tried one myself, but the Xikar Pipeline is very similar to the Old Boy in design (flip-up cap, flint ingnition) and around your price point.

Spend the few extra bucks for an Old Boy.
You'll never regret it.

Ditto. Not the best in a breeze but it is everywhere else IMHO.

Colibri sucks major ass; avoid them. I concur with the Old Boy recommendation. If price is a factor and you can stand the taste, good old zippo.

If you buy the Old Boy from Smokingpipes they will fix it free if it ever
needs repair.That was the policy 2 years ago when I got mine from them.

Yeah, I'm looking around for one. If I find one, you can have it. But I think I've tossed them in the garbage where they belong. One Old Boy is still cheaper than 3 Colibri.

No one has mentioned IMCO. Though a cheap lighter, it still has lasted longer than a Colibri and going strong.

I purchased one a little over a month ago (after reading Danish Pipe Guys's thread on the subject and am very happy with mine. I wanted a carry around lighter "like" the "Old Boy" since lately it seems I have a bad habit of laying something down and forgetting where I put it (getting old sucks) for days. I didn't want to lose my "Old Boy". I keep the "Old Boy" next to the computer and now carry the Xikar around in my pocket (thankfully haven't misplaced it yet). They are built just like the "Old Boy" that I have (a very fine lighter) but maybe a hair thicker. I would highly recommend one and feel that they are a very good deal for the money.

Thanks for the review Mike. I've always been a Xikar fan and believe they make the best cutters ever. I've lost more Xikar cutters than some people own. I currently have 3: redwood, one that says Cohiba from a gift pack, and a Habana series which I am in love with.

I am kinda holding out for a Habana series Old Boy type lighter.

Oh I just bought a Xikar knife too; it has mother of pearl handles.

My wife bought the Corona Old Boy for me back for Valentine's Day and I love it. She got it from here - seemed to be a little cheaper than other places. http://www.pufferspipes.com/html/lighters.html

I've had extremely good results from the Colibri pipe lighter,



very much easier to use than the Corona Old Boy. It does NOT work outdoors, though.

I purchased a Prometheus Barron. It has a pic and a punch cutter. So far it is very reliable. Incidentally, years ago the local shop was trying to push Prometheus on me, claiming they were the best lighters in the world. I was in there a couple of weeks ago and they turned their nose up on Prometheus, now claiming that Colibri is the best lighter in the world. I guess the best lighter is the one they have in stock....

Oh, they told me Colibri is coming back and that they had an appointment with a rep.

But it's that special 'new' lighter fluid (butane) that tastes lightly of pressed flowers (if anything at all) lol!

Kilted I knew you were uncouth but that is just to much. I'm sorry but your country club membership has been revoked.



Don't worry though, mine have been too.... Bic, it just works!

Scented butane? Is that decadent or what. Shocked

Honestly, I did not know that Bic made disposable butane lighters. 99% of the time I use wooden matches.

I was kidding about the scented butane, I've also used Zippo and Nimrod pipe lighters for many years, and I've never really had a problem with tasting lighter fluid.
