If you’ve shopped for a XIKAR product in the last year or so, you’ve undoubtedly come across the phrase high performance. It’s a pair of words that have been attached to several XIKAR accessories, either directly or by the abbreviation HP, while it has also been a banner for several other products.
While not technically part of the company’s High Performance collection, XIKAR announced a new lighter in May 2017 that sought to merge high performance with a seemingly incongruous term: value. XIKAR has never been a company that touted having low-cost products, but the Linea’s $29.99 MSRP landed it right at the low end of its offerings, on par with the Stratosphere, Flash and Tech. The company also refers to it as an “entry level” lighter.
