    (During my smoking days.)

    Going to the bar? Zippo with skull and crooss. Cool.
    General lighter needs? Bic. Plus they are a little more child proof.

I keep a handful of flints and a spare wick in the fuel reservoir of my Zippo, just in case.
    Oh, well in that case there's no need for bic's imo... (JK they make for the best firework lighters "Flame stay's still")

    Blah matches are cool for the nostalgic sense, but zippo's have the style (I myself have one). I don't smoke, never have and never will, but I am a "good" pyro. (Bic's come in handy when you need a longer flame, with a zippo I'm afraid of using the wick faster by keeping it lit.)

    I don't like either. Lighters are expensive and finicky. I prefer strike anywhere matches. Get 320 for 68 cents. I just grab a handful every day and put them in a small waterproof pack that has a metal striker. Small, light weight, works pretty much anywhere, in any condition.

    Excactly, I always thought that was just me, its like a sweet-nasty taste it gives IMO. As far as style, I love zippos, and still think they rock, my brother had a Calibri and it broke/ stopped working really fast, and he bought one for my mom and it did not work at all. I like Bic's for everyday use, and damn for like 99cents they last for about 3 months. Zippos last a lifetime, but you have to maintain them.

    Zippos are expensive compared to Bic, Bic is much better I think

    Had to resurect this due to the smoking ban thread. BTW zippos rule all other forms of lighters.

    HEh I will stick with my zippo when you pull one out to light a ladies cig its a definitly a mark in your favor cause it shows you have style and responsible enough to maintain it,hence you are probably able to maintain her !
