Perfecto Cigar Holder

Every now and then, I come across an idea or product and said to myself “Why didn’t I think of that?” or “I thought of that, and didn’t pursue the idea and should have.” That is the case with the Perfecto Cigar Holder.

The Perfecto Cigar Holder is a 100% American made product that is steered towards golfers. The principle behind the holder is that it clips onto a golf cart’s dash, you rest your cigar in the holder, take your shot and come back to enjoy your cigar.

 

Pretty simple & effective product that has many other uses besides for golfers.

I am not a golfer, but I did find quite a few other times when I found myself using it.

EpifaniaI was working on a wood working project under my carport and didn’t want to drag my big Stinky ash tray down (to the ground) with me. It was a bit too bulky to be moving around and I figured it was inevitable before I knocked it over full of ashes & nubs. So, I had a spare piece of plywood and it was enough to clamp the holder to. The holder and the cigar don’t weigh a whole lot, so I didn’t need much wood to stabilize it. This piece was a little overkill, but it was just a scrap I had laying around and it worked. This brought up a slight con of the product: You need to have a fairly horizontal clamping surface to keep your cigar from rolling out. Yet, the sides are fairly high on it, so you could go off level with it some-what and not worry about loosing your cigar.

 

4I was out fishing at a local pier and fired up a cigar. When it came time to check my bait, I really didn’t want to set my stogie on the rail or deck of the pier. There is no telling how much fish guts, seagull poop, or what other unimaginable things have been on that pier railing! I don’t want to put something that goes into my mouth on any of that. I remembered I had the Perfecto Cigar Holder and retrieved it from my truck. It clamped perfectly to the pier railing and held tight while I reeled in my line. I have sat my cigar on pier rails a few times and watched them fall to their drowning deaths. That led me to bring ole “yard gars” out when fishing. Now, I can bring anything I want without having to worry about where to rest my cigar at. This brings up a slight issue as well: A very strong wind could blow your cigar from the holder. But, I imagine it would have to be a fairly strong wind. In that case, I wouldn’t have been fishing in strong winds.

 

5I have done a hand full of cigar reviews recently and The Perfecto Cigar Holder was the holder I used to take the pictures with. It held the cigar still and also held the ashes that made for some interesting “ash trail” pictures. I tried using a flat white background, but most of the time, I would have to fight the cigar to hold still to get a good picture. I spent more time balancing the cigar than taking the pictures. People have said “Cigar reviewers have some of the ugliest hands.” Well, I am no hand model by no means! The holder saves you all from having to look at my “working hands” in my review pictures. The cost of the holder is cheaper than renting a hand model.

The day I took these pictures, the winds were about 5-10mph with a few higher gusts. I had no issues with this 52rg La Gloria Cubana flying out of the holder.

I have also thought of clamping it to: a car dash, truck tailgate, ice chest handle, armrest of patio chairs, picnic tables, kitchen counters, fence rails, deck railings/steps etc… Basically anything that is 3.5″ or less and a fairly horizontal surface, it will grab ahold to and hold your cigar.

 

This is not a perfect world and I did find a few cons of the holder:

 

To me, the cons are lesser than the pros. It has gotten me out of a few “binds” over the few weeks I have had it and am grateful to have had it.

 

You can purchase it online here.

Or purchase it at any of these cigar shops or golf courses listed here.
