Vertigo Cyclone 2 Review

Vertigo Cyclone II Lighter Review
Vertigo Cyclone 2 Review
  Vertigo seems to always deliver an affordable lighter that it is hard to go wrong with. Such is the case with today's review of the Cyclone II Triple Torch lighter. The Cyclone II packs a serious punch at this price point. 
  Keeping in mind cost, the lighter is mostly of plastic construction. Vertigo went with a flip top lid, opposed to a single action thumb action to light. Once the lid is flipped up, the thumb action depressor ignites three very impressive torch flames. Notice, this is the Cyclone II (2). Vertigo improved the original design with a HUGE fuel adjustment wheel located on the bottom of the lighter. Well done. The butane fuel tank is huge and translucent for easy viewing.

Lacking from the Cyclone is an integrated cigar cutter. I can't really even knock on this considering the value. Vertigo gets a pass on the cutter. I would like to see an single action pusher to ignition. This was a shorter review than my usual on this small powerhouse triple torch lighter. As I mentioned, how can you really go wrong? Average price seems to hover around $16-$22 USD.
