    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Lightweight, easy to use, and seemingly well-built. Strong jet flame, but not a flamethrower.

    Cons:

    Slight learning curve. (See Other Thoughts, below.)
    May require frequent filing. (I don't use it enough to say.)

    OtherThoughts:

    To get it to light every time, you have to depress the trigger partway for a second, then complete the press so the piezoelectric thing makes a spark. If you just mash the trigger down, there isn't any gas plume for the spark to ignite. Pressing the trigger partway releases gas, which the delayed spark sets on fire.

    Bottomline:

    I don't smoke, but I wanted a better-than-disposable lighter for things like melting cut rope ends. This works very well for that.
