|Visol Phantom Lighter Review|
The Phantom stands alone with it's signature design and is one of Visol's best sellers. With a press of the single thumb action the double jet torch is revealed. Unlike most cigar lighters, the dual torches pop out the side of the Phantom at an upward angle. A thumb action pusher slides smoothly down the face of the lighter. This reveals the dual torches, strong and wind resistant. Though, to adjust the flames a screwdriver is required, not the most convenient.

Unfortunately, Visol did not add any "frills". Phantom does not have a fuel gauge window or a cigar punch. The quality and finish are just o.k. In the first picture above you can see some small blemishes on the finish directly under the pusher on the left side. The lighter is average in weight, with combined plastic and metal construction.
This lighter is for those looking for something a little different that won't break the bank. The suggested retail of the Visol Phantom is a bit all over the place. CLR's research shows it listing between $35-$40 before any discount. If nothing else, Phantom is definitely an interesting lighter.
