I was tired of my bic burning my fingers. Based off several posts, I decided I needed a Zippo pipe ligher. Once I installed the lighter fluid, it lights on the first attemp. When I draw the flame into the bowl, it lights easier than matches. But what about a re-light at the end of the bowl? I put 1/4" of tobacco into the bottom of my deepest pipe. No problem drawing the flame 1 1/2" down into pipe to light it.
Now my life is complete, until I find something else I can't live without.
