    I roll up a fat joint or blunt once in a while, but I mostly smoke from my pipe. I was thinking of getting a zippo light, but would that be hard to light the bowl with? Kinda seems like it would, since the flame is a little different than a BIc lighter.

    Yeah, you might not want to use a zippo for sparking up a bowl. Just use a bic... or any cheap lighter. Zippos can work for blunts and joints, though... and they are mostly used for tobacco products. That's really their purpose anyway ;).

    It probably wouldnt be to hard to light a bowl with... But i dont think it would taste very good b/c of the lighter fluid..

    I find when using a zippo, cornering your bowl become harder. The flame is sometimes bigger and goes all over the place because it uses a wick and fluid, but it does stay lit in the wind much better. I would say only get one unless your smoking cigarettes or trying to impress the ladies with your zippo tricks.

    It's very bad to light with, and it does taste like shit.

    Bic's are the way to go.

    you could run to a tobacco/headshop and grab a pipe lighter.

    they're pretty cool.

    the flame comes out the side, instead of the top, so your hand stays vertical when you light it.

    i like 'em.

    yea the zippo makes the weed taste a little zippo fluidy. i dont think its bad, but its better to use a bic or some cheap lighter, i hate those tweaker lighters tho, the ones that shoot out a huge flame sometimes

    Whoa! I remember when there was no Bics! I used to have a Colibri (very nice and a little bit chic!) for going out, and a Zippo for work! What a pain that was to run outa fuel! Or when the flint wore out... Aaaah! the good old days...:hippy:

    I think the zippo fluid you inhale just tastes like shit... Bic forever... :stoned:

    Yea the other problem with a zippo is that the flame can no longer be used to light a bowl when it's upside down... That doesn't help...

    I dont like zippos for smoking pot. Sure they have cool designs and they look better than a bic but bics are the way to go.

    Zippos are more for show really, but do find them to do alright for lighting hitters.

    save the zippo for blunts or joints, there always nice to pull out when your sparking up a joint at a party or something and wanna impress :)

    ive only smoked a bowl a couple times with one, i didnt really taste anything different but i did burn myself a bit. if you got a bic use that
  20. if it's so bad why would htey make pipe zippos???

    i stilll say use a regular butane lighter.... i love the taste of zippo lit cigs.... but weed has a good flavor... i wanna taste as much of it as possible... not hide it..
