Just recieved this lighter in the mail and have to say i'm impressed. First of all, The picture in the amazon listing is wrong. the lighter is black with Stainless top, stainless workings and a chrome base. that wasnt a concern for me though, this lighter is nice! Took it out of the package and figured I would fill it first. Didnt have to as the lighter came with fuel in it already. I figured there wasnt much in there so after testing, I did fill it. As far as "feel" goes, the lighter fits in the palm of the hand nicely. It is big, but no bigger than other table top lighters of the same caliber. The nozzle/neck opens 180 degrees so there is a lot of accessability there. The trigger does not have a safety lock so you can just pick it up, extend the nozzle and pull the trigger. There is a button to hold it "on" when ignited so natually you'll want to be careful with that. The flame is strong and can be adjusted very easily using the twist dial on the bottom. there is a little folding tab there so you dont need a screwdriver, just snap the tab open and turn. I was able to extend the flame amost 3 inches before the base of the flame lifted off the burner so it can really push out some fuel at that setting. I will say this too; this is not a toy. Keep this away form kids/babies. The neck hold position real well when open and it is very comfortable to use. I would say that for the money, its worth it and if you take care of it, it will last a long time. thanks for reading.

I was a little surprised that it came already filled with butane. Nonetheless, I have repeatedly used it for over a month and it has been flawless. I haven't filled it yet because, as I stated, it came already full.

I am a hot air balloon pilot and sometimes I need to re light my burner…FAST. This torch is the finest thing I have found EVER. I have used bar b que lighters and all sorts of backup fire starting devices. Most will not work very long because they do not fold. I have typically broken the 'nose' off the body of the lighter before using it. These tools are only for the emergencies that rarely occur. Also bbq lighters only produce a flame…. this beast produces a TORCH. Because it folds and goes into my flying bag it has ridden in my bag many months and its 'nose' is securely folded away and is still ready for use. THANKS for making a GREAT product.

THe first one had the tank cap come off while it was running, leak all the butane out. blow up in my hand and start mg bedspread on fire. The seccond one had the ON positoin lock button freeze up with it running, soi I had to put it in a tub of water til the fuel ran out and then disamble the button mechanism. I would still buy another one though; they produce a really big hot flame and I like them . I will just be careful with them, and I would never have one in a home with children. If you're getting a lighter or torch made in China, be careful It just might be you that you torch/

I have bought more torch lighters than I care to admit, this one has been the best! it's a powerful little torch. I would love to buy three or four more but I don't need that many. I do wish there was a way to adjust the flame but even though there's not it's still the best.

I had previously purchased this torch and it lasted over three years of constant use so when it finally showed signs of age, (It still works) I bought another one to replace it. I always used the best fluid I can get for it. At least 5x but mostly 7-10x. Highly recommended.

I adjusted this to produce a 2 in long blue torch flame. This is the perfect length for lighting a cigar or our wood stove. I bought highly filtered butane fuel as recommended for other torches of this type. This is a big, beefy, weighty lighter. A little bulky to carry in your pocket (but doable) and sits nicely on any table or bench without fear of it tipping over. The body is metal, but oddly enough, the spacer block below where the closed nozzle rests, is some cheap chromed plastic. I only mention this because I rather foolishly closed the nozzle with the "flame hold button" still depressed. The flame immediately scorched off the coating and began to melt/burn the plastic block. My only negative comment on this perfect torch lighter is that the groove/grip provided for pulling the wand out of its resting position provides very little purchase for someone with large fingers. Think jack knife blade and you'll understand what I mean. I fixed this by drilling a 1/8 inch hole within the groove and inserted a round-headed self-tapping screw. Think jack knife blade with thumb button. The manufacturer should consider adding this. BTW - the presentation box that this came in was awesome. Makes this lighter a perfect gift; or the box can be re-purposed. Peace/Out

I like it, it's got a solid feel, although there are no instructions that come with the lighters. There is a little adjustment dial of sorts that changes the air flow in the flame in addition to the butane dial on the bottom. Switch can be locked to keep the flame on. You can't tell if it's empty on butane though. There are no indicators. I bought two because I heard some problems with refilling the torch. First one filled up easily and I could tell it was full when the butane would sputter out. The second one fills with butane but I can never tell if it is full or not because there is no indicator. It doesn't overflow like the other one, even if they are both the same lighters.
