I've only had one Opus and one Anejo, but I enjoyed both. I love the Hemingway series.

I still like Nicaraguan cigars a little better. I'll keep experimenting, though, as these make there way into my humidor from time to time. :)

I've seen it... Looks great. I did not bother to ask the price... The Opus graphic was enough to $scare$ me away.

Good middle of the road stick by Fuente is the Heritage Puro Sol. Cameroon stick very tasty. I don't compare it to an Opus, but it is one of my favorite Fuente sticks

So I guess $450 is 'reasonable' then. It was gold plated.

If its the top I suppose its a steal at that price, I would pay maybe 75 for the bottom one, but I doubt that will ever happen lol

150 is not too bad... If it is good quality and lasts a good while.

I am not a fan of that one at all..... Worth about 4 bucks to me, unless it had a really good flame, then about 8

I don't have an dupont xtend but I heard they are top of the line, the best of the best, I have a POS colibri that never works right and a 4 dollar one I bought that is 100 times better

Mark(cigarmoney) had 1 for like 475 on black friday. I immediately pulled out the credit card. Just to find out someone had already bought it 20 mins earlier at 230 in the morning 2 hrs after the sale had started.:cursing:

You do not know what you are missing then. The S.T. duPont Xtend are excellent value.

The Xtend go for about 150 now.
The Xtend mini goes for about 20 bucks less, same look just smaller.
The Opus and other graphic Xtend go for about 20 bucks more.

I guess so... Ignorance is bliss, I suppose. I think I've got it pretty good with the couple Colibri that I bought on closeout for $25 apiece. I mean they are pretty sweet, you push down on the button and a torch flame comes out everytime. It's pretty new-fangled, I will admit...

Love any Opus cigar,,have been hooked since 1999 and as far as an expensive lighter,,,BTDT,,,a flame is a flame and my $3 Ronson toasts a cigar just like any other lighter which saves me money to buy,,,wait for it! More Opus cigars.
