Prometheus Predator Lighter Review

Prometheus Predator Torch Lighter
Prometheus Predator Single Torch Cigar Lighter
  The Prometheus Predator shown here in a deep metallic blue is all about the looks. This is a single torch wind resistant lighter, with smooth lines typical of many Prometheus lighters. The icy blue against the high polished chrome is truly stunning. It is on the taller side coming in at 3.2 inches in height.

Prometheus Predator Top Open

  Predator has good sized thumb action pusher and you need to flip open the lid prior ignition. CLR not being a huge fan of two steps for lighting, this would be one of the downsides to the lighter. Of course, not a big deal, only personal preference. 

Prometheus Predator Single Jet

  Prometheus put a good sized fuel gauge window on the backside of the lighter. On the front side Prometheus is prominently displayed and does not take away from the aesthetics. Being a single jet flame, it is adequate for cigar toasting. The suggested retail of the Predator is $59.95. Not inexpensive for a single torch lighter, though, it is a beautiful basic lighter.
