Default Glow igniters

Does anyone know where I can get a long shaft igniter with the meter? I want one like the "hot shot" but with a meter.

Thanks in advance.

i personally love the hotshot, i would go through the dynamites with meters every few months it seemed like. I have had my super hot shot 2 for almost two years. i do not like the meters, i think its a weak point for something to go wrong.

I'm down with the hot shot without the meters as well. Mine has worked flawlessly since I purchased it over a year ago.

My metered Dynamite one, never really lasted.

Meters are worthless. Hot Shot is the way to go. I keep a C ignitor with a battery in it just in case my charged ingitor goes dead. Never happened though.

I cast another vote for the Hot Shot. Those are the best ignitors Ive found. For whatever reason they seem to put out more power than any other Ive found.

But if you really want a meter. I suggest the McDaniel R/C ignitors. They are bright orange. Ive used them in the past and feel that they are about the same quality of the Hot Shot. Unfortunately my favorite online retailer doesnt carry them and everyone Ive had has grown legs and walked away somehow
