I find it a big improvement over the original version. The first version I have is just a nuisance to use. No matter how I use it, it takes too much clicking and fighting with the igniter, but the new version lights first click every time. With one big caveat: it is a torch and very easy to get burned if it is not aimed carefully when using a pipe. I would expect a new user to get burned a time or two before they learn to keep their fingers well away from the bowl. But having got used to it, I love this one. It is my new first choice because it is much less strain on my elderly fingers than the Clipper lighter that I have been using. No mistake, the Clipper is a great lighter, but for me, the Dissim torch is a better choice. And it's much better at lighting votive candles and such than most other lighters.
Worked perfectly 5 minutes out of the box, I had no issues fueling, lighting, or using the torch. Creates great flame size at the push of a button and the new metal finish makes it feel really premium. Overall the best lighter I have ever (and probably will ever) use. Great job DISSIM!
Great item...works exactly as you would expect. Good fuel consumption...range is really good. Overall...this is as good if not better than the original DISSIM lighter.
This torch works a treat. DISSIM has shown great progress in their design and manufacturing processes and as a result I am very happy with this product. DISSIM's dual-torch lighter has easily earned a spot in my kit.
The concept is amazing. But i feel like the follow through still needs to be perfected. I got mine in and I’m really happy about it but majority of the time it misfires and doesn’t hold the torch flame for over 1 sec. so yeah once they get this fuel issue sorted i think it’s gonna be a great product.
