Recently I tried out a product called the Perfecto Cigar Holder. Many thanks to Gary for sending me this tool for review - he is also willing to provide three cigar holders to give away to our readers - read on for details!
Perfecto Cigar Holder is exactly what it sounds like—a product designed to hold a cigar when you are out and about and are not in a location with an ashtray or another good place to set down your cigar. Think of it as a portable ashtray. The device itself has a resting place for the cigar, a tube for catching ash, and a C-clamp. The idea with the C-clamp is that you can use it to clamp the device onto any surface (a railing for example). So even if you don’t have a table, you can still set your cigar down.
How did it perform? It’s well constructed, but a bit bulky. Despite being bulky, it is lightweight, which is great, and appears to be made with materials that can withstand contact with concrete and other harsh materials without scratching or getting damaged. The nylon it's made out of can withstand temperatures up to 520 degrees F / 271 C, so there are no melting concerns. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing device, and it looks a bit awkward, but it has a lot of utility.
How useful the Perfecto Cigar Holder is will depend largely on what you want to do with it. For example, it is not very useful in the car, since there is no surface which can accommodate it. But it’s perfect for clamping onto a picnic table, and apparently it will fit most golf carts. I don’t golf, so I can’t attest to that, but I can definitely see where it’d be a great application, and it would be useful if you were out in the park with your laptop working on a bench for example (I noticed that I placed the cigar "ash out" in the picture above. It's not the way you're normally supposed to do it). So, all in all, a useful product. I recommend looking up its dimensions and deciding whether or not it will benefit you. Think about what surfaces you would want to attach it to and where and when you would be using it to decide if it would be a good purchase, either from the official website or from Amazon.
As I said in the beginning of this post, we've got three Perfecto Cigar Holders to give away to our readers, you just need to leave a comment below to be entered in the draw. The winner will be announced in one week. Good luck!
