The Rebel model from Colibri is a reliable lighter with a solid casing and generously proportioned fuel tank. This handy torch is not only a handsome lighting instrument but also delivers the goods - its patented ignition issues a powerful single jet flame that stands up to even the harshest of conditions. Plus, it's available in a variety of colors - each one nicely printed with an officially licensed NASCAR logo.
Lighter is shipped empty - butane is required - triple refined or better is highly advised.
“I recently purchased a yellow "Rebel" lighter for even less than the current price & it immediately became my personal cigar lighting implement. Four other, way more expensive, lighters have been put to pasture by one little five buck Firebird. It has the largest tank capacity of any of my lighters & sports a viewing window, which most inexpensive lighters do not. Compact, yet powerful, it has a yellow plastic cover that protects the piezo parts & is trimmed in yellow plastic, which gives it a great look. The Nascar emblem is cool & the flame adjustment wheel is super easy to operate.”

“Not a nascar fan at all, but this baby works. Found that it needs to be "warmed" for the lighter to work the first time all the time. If its any where close to cold, it will putter for a few minutes before it decides to work. Worth the money. I got it as a grab bag offer.”

“Its a $5.00 lighter, if you get it for free then its fine.”

“In March of 2013 I purchased a yellow Rebel & used it like a rented mule for just about a year before it began to display effects of ignition blockage. This could be due to my use of Ronson Multi-Fill Ultra Butane Fuel. It probably isn't as refined as some of the more expensive options. Anyway, I must have lit 5 or 6 cigars a day with it for 365 days, plus relights. Figure just about 2000 cigars lit. Adding the cost of the butane & it's .005 cents per light. So I'm buying another Colibri Nascar Rebel Lighter, blue this time & some real fancy butane. If it lasts more than a year, well, we will replay this review at that time & see. Heck, you could do worse for your 10 clam investment than 2000 reliable prelights, relights & lights!”

“Works good. Have bought a half dozen torch lighters and this one and one other are the only that work”
“These lighters were offered to me at a discounted rate along with my purchase so I got two of them. First lighter works great. I’ve lit half a dozen sticks with it by now. Great features and function. Better than some of my “good” lighters. Has an easy to adjust wheel to control the flame and a fuel window. The second lighter had problems firing. Cigars International has got me covered with a replacement on the way with further assurance that the replacement will work or they’ll exchange it as well. Great customer service.
