My Review of Palio and Blazer

I got my Palio yesterday from the "Never Ending Palio GB" thread, and I gotta agree with all the rave reviews. The cut it perfect, and it slices through the cigar with ease. Highly recommended to anyone on the fence about buying one :tu

New to the forums and cigar smoking in general, but I gotta say that this website/forum is a wonderful resource for new smokers. That aside, I wanted to share a torch lighter I found thats a 'clone' of the Blazer PB-207...same design, different name. They claim that it comes from the same factory as the Blazer, but I haven't actually seen one in person and was hoping some of you may have some input.

It's called the "Smokers Pocket Torch"...

You should definitely think twice about posting a link to a competing product in another products "yay-for-product" thread for your first post. First post or very shortly thereafter ought to be the New Gorilla forum for an introduction ;)

My only problem is the strength of the flame

txmatt has a thread going on modifying your lighter to boost the power here: http://www.clubstogie.com/vb/showthread.php?t=41071 not sure if it's applicable to blazers as mine works just fine. I have used the instructions to turn a Ronson Jetlite into a flame thrower. Blazer *should* be similar

Just returned my Blazer for service. Cost me $25 to return it and I'm waiting for a new or repair return.

I love the lighter and only had it for a year, minimal use. After filling it one day it would not light. I use Vector 5 strain fluid. I had a spark but no light.

I have no idea what went wrong.

How did it cost you $25 to return it? You could've bought a new one for $30 on Amazon:

As for the other post above which talks about the knock-off brand - if you read the info the knock-off is made in China. The real PB-207 is made in Japan. I wouldn't ever trust a cheapo Chinese copy for half the price. I would rather get things right the first time and just buy the real PB-207!

I have a Palio, which is the best cutter I ever had and a Blazer that I use all the time. I have several triple and single flame lighters, but the Blazer just always seems to be my go to lighter.
The only thing I would change about my Blazer is maybe getting the clear one to see how much fluid is left in the reservoir. Of course I can't remember the last time I ever filled that thing anyway!
 
My Palio is the first quality piece of cigar equipment I bought, and I love it. The worker at the shop actually talked me out of a Xikar for the Palio, and it was the right choice.

Lighter, though, is still up in the air. I currently love my Colibri Quantum, but lets see how that ends up...

Just used my new Palio and Blazer yesterday. Since I've only used it once I think it's too soon for a "review" but I just wanted to share how impressed I was with the Palio. Such a smooth, easy, and clean cut! Never have I had such a clean flat cut. I used it on a torpedo so I got to cut both ends. Also, the Blazer worked very nicely. Lit the cigar up really quickly! For some reason it seemed like it would light faster than my dual flame Nibo. That could just be cause it was a topedo though :) I like how the Blazer lights every time. I think both were well worth the purchase - at least so far.

I have a bazer at my cabin in NC that i keep there because of the altitude and air lock problems. It works AWESOME! I have actually used it to melt pennies. I also have a Palio and Xikar and now my xikar sits in a drawer so anyone wanna buy it 35 bucks. Its a blue Xi2 i believe.

I recently procured a X tend and its the best lighter i have EVER used. Althought im sure i will baby it :) Like the owner before me

I received my first Palio last week along with my first Heartfelt beads and don't know how I managed without either.

Until I cut a cigar with my Palio I had no idea how dull my Zino had become - night and day. :tu
