For pipe-smoking, I stopped looking when I started running a Dupont Line1 with the barrel-style flame adjuster & a Pipe-Flame nozzle.
You'll spend the same & more as you continue to buy $30 junks, or something better & more expensive than a junk - but still nowhere near as good as the Line1 Dupont. Dunhill Rollas are basically in the same arena, but good luck finding a Dunhill Rolla with a Pipe Flame nozzle, or the part. They exist, but they're much more scarce. Personally I like the form-factor of the Dupont Line1 over the Dunhills anyway, so that's what I went with from the start. I also had one of those fake Dupont Line2 Talls, & I found that the fake Duponts are overweight by about an ounce compared to an authentic L2 Tall, they have cheap & thin gold or chrome plating (no silver), & they make a really loud noise when you open them. I ran one of those fake L2s for a day & then got rid of it because it simply was not pleasant to use. I tell people who ask me about them to buy one for $20 & see for themselves. If they like them, so be it, but I got tired of it after about 20 minutes. Also keep in mind that with any fake or genuine Line2 you can't adjust the flame one-handed at all, or very easily with two hands, which is why I find the Line2 model - fake or real - to be less than ideal for pipe-smoking. WIth all of that being said, I do have a Line2 Gatsby (shorty) Pipe-Flame as a back-up, but my Line1 is the one that I carry daily & the one that I want for easy pipe-smoking, mainly due to the barrel-style flame adjuster.
Still my Daily Dupont (Line1 shorty + Pipe Flame) :
