|Xikar Pulsar Triple Torch Lighter|
If CLR was to design a lighter, it would include the following:
- Triple torch
- One step to ignition, meaning depress pusher and lights (no opening lid, etc.)
- Large fuel adjustment wheel, operated by hand (no screwdriver, etc.)
- Fuel gauge window
- Integrated cigar punch/cutter
- Solid exterior construction, with minimal to no plastic
- Attention to detail in regards to fit & finish
- Aesthetically pleasing
- No proof of purchase lifetime warranty
The Pulsar has a large push button ignition located on the side of the lighter. Once fully depressed, the lid flips up and the triple jet torches fire on all cylinders. A very strong windproof triple flame is now ready for any cigar to cross it's blue furry.
|Xikar Pulsar Strong Blue Flame|
Pulsar is equipped with a nice oversized fuel adjustment wheel and fuel gauge window. CLR's only complaint with the Pulsar (at least the one used for review) is the fuel wheel was hard to turn. Due to the location of the wheel, I was unable to grip it on either side without my fingers slipping off. I used my finger nail instead and the wheel turned smoothly. The fuel window is adequate in size and is a much needed feature when firing up triple jets. The pulsar is not shy in the butane consumption department as to be expected.
Xikar put a price tag of $99 USD on this badboy. You wanna know something? It is worth the price of admission. The lighter has it all! Refer back to the bullet points at the biginning of this review, its all there. If you want a lighter that is back by the industries best warranty, crammed with every feature you could ask for, look no furhter as the Pulsar has arrived.
