Jetline Bolero Lighter Review

JetLine Bolero Triple Torch Lighter
JetLine Bolero Triple Torch Review  
  Bolero is one of Jetline's top tier lighters. The inline triple torch lighter has nice aesthetic appeal. The name Bolero is derived from music originating in Cuba. Obviously, appropriate for a cigar lighter. Now if you just get easy access to some legal Cuban sticks!
  The all metal body construction gives this Jetline a lot of heft. I generally like heft, though, this might be a bit too much for my jean pocket comfort. That said, it certainly feels like quality and is well constructed. Bolero's overall design is comfortable in my hand. There is a a center pusher that ignites the powerful inline triple torches. It takes a decent amount of pressure to depress the pusher A good thing to help prevent accidentally depressing.

  I really wanted to like this lighter, but it has too many shortcomings at this price point for me personally. The flip top lid does not automatically open when the pusher is depressed. The lid of the JetLine I used for this review does not snap back quickly, literally have to manually open it all the way. It appears to be spring loaded, though almost nonexistent with the one for review. A large fuel gauge window is prominently visible on Bolero's side. JetLine integrated on the bottom of the lighter a good sized 8mm fold out cigar punch cutter. Lastly, the butane fuel adjust requires a tool to reach. That is one of my biggest pet peeves, should not be inconvenient to adjust the torches on a cigar lighter.

  Overall, I had high hopes for this lighter... You can probably guess my thoughts without me having to lay them all out. That said, it is a nicely constructed lighter, with fantastic inline powerful triple torch flames. The suggested retail is $80. Per usual, a little searching will yield a much friendlier price point.
