|Prometheus Z Torch Lighter|
Lets start with some of the positives aspects of the Z series. I have always been a big fan of heftier lighters. Generally, I find them more durable in the long run. That said, there are lots of people who prefer a more light weight lighter in their pocket. The Prometheus Z is mainly constructed with a durable plastic body, creating a light weight lighter. I found the lighter to have more of a shorter stature and was a comfortable fit in my hand.

The wind resistant flame is a strong blue flame and fired up very consistently. A good sized plastic fuel adjustment knob located on the bottom of the Z is easy to operate with two fingers. There is a good sized fuel tank, but no fuel gauge window....Ughhhh! The Prometheus Z is also lacking a cigar punch. For a lighter that has a suggested MSRP of 49.95, CLR finds the price hard to justify.
