JetLine Magna Quad Lighter

JetLine Magna Quad Lighter
  Jetline loves quad torches. They might have the most four torch options of all the different lighter brands. Enter the impressive Magna Quad lighter for review. CLR was pleasantly surprised by the packaging. It arrived in a nice gift box and as a bonus even includes a black carrying case.
JetLine Magna Quad

  The Magna looks innocent enough upon first glance. A quick thumb flick of the lid reveals one little powerhouse of a lighter. Now that the four jets are exposed it is ready for take off. One depression of the pusher fires up this bad boy. The wind resistant flame is orange to pinkish, often turning fire red. CLR is always a bigger fan of the hotter blue flame. That said, no doubt you will not have an issue lighting larger ring gauged cigar put in front of these quad flames. The body of lighter is much more substantial than some other offerings from Jetline. For example the New York, which is comprised of mostly plastic. Magna is hefty in weight, with a good amount of metal in the overall construction. 
JetLine Magna Quad Punch
  The Magna Quad shown here is in the black finish. The finish is textured making for a better tactile feel. CLR likes this version better than the increasingly popular gunmetal finish. Admittedly, usually gunmetal is CLR's favorite finish choice. Jetline integrated a good sized fuel gauge window, along with a decent sized fuel tank. Though, not essential, great to have when the lighter is burning through a lot fuel. To adjust the fuel a screwdriver is required. CLR prefers the more convenient option of a fuel adjustment wheel. Lastly, there is an integrated 8mm cigar punch. Whether a punch fan or not, it does come in handy to have when in a pinch. The Lighter has a suggested retail of $39.99 and can be found around the $24 mark. One last important thing to note, Jetline includes a lifetime warranty (see reader comments below). No doubt Magna Quad offers a ton of value.

I've had a lot of torch lighters but this ranks at or on the top.

The igniter button on mine broke and even though they say their lighters have a lifetime warranty, it is virtually impossible to contact them to get it replaced. Very dissatisfied.

Their Lifetime warranty is bogus!!! Mine broke as well and I have been unable to contact anyone to get it replaced, This company doesn't answer emails or answer the phone. Totally pissed off and will never recommend this lighter.
