Right now for me it's just some QLs with a Bic. I think I may invest in an electric coil soon though. I want to try these Exoticas out, and a Bic gets me no where.

Do it. I was using Akhla quicklites before, which are supposed to be pretty good, but I've recently switched to Exoticas and wow, what a difference. I use a $10 single-coil burner and it works great. May take a little longer to get naturals going, but it's definitely worth it.

Do you have a Big Lots anywhere near you? That's where I got mine. I also hear Walgreens has them.

Target, Wal-Mart, etc. didn't have them in stores for some reason.

I live in Vegas and they just recently finished a Big Lots near me, maybe once I get the chance I'll swing by and pick one up!

I rub them inbetween my fingers at a super-sonic speeds to light them up.

I played a lot of Space Invaders when I was younger.

QLs i use a pocket torch or at a friends just his coil stove, for when i get my stuff tomorrow i will be using a full size torch to light the naturals until i snag a coil burner eventually.

while im debating weather its going to be hard or not to stand there to get them going because the torch can char wood is literally half a second, a little over a second it will catch wood on fire so i figure 30 seconds to a min and i should have full glowing natural coals

I light houses on fire and use the burning ashes of the once strong-standing abode to heat my bowls.

I used the torch I have for the Exoticas for the first time. I'd much rather be using a coil though.

For some reason knowing I'm able to light ANYTHING on fire and incinerate it within seconds just isn't a good thing. I'm running out of things that catch on fire..
