Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Buy the 8000
No adjustment on flame. Spend a little more and get the TS8000 instead.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stickman34 Spring for the premium torch!
Yes, this torch works great but, not for long! I use MAPP gas to sterilize the cutting tools that I use on my orchids - works great! My old torch was older than the hills and I finally replaced it about a month ago with this one. Well, the new one stopped worked yesterday. I thought I was out of gas but, no, the torch head was dead. Pay more and get a better quality torch head!

I bought this to bend some heavy duty S hooks that I coudn't move with out the gas. The Map gas made short work of it.
I have some small propane tanks, I lost the head(looked over a year for it). So I just went with the Map gas for more heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Avsnut Works great!
I bought this with some hesitation because I didn't want to spend that much on a torch but I quickly found out that it was worth the money. Just so you know I have never soldered anything in my life so this was a learning experience as well. I really like the trigger start which makes operation and handling very easy and it also has a hold button to keep the flame on constantly if you don't want it to turn off automatically. I was told by a Plummer that he only uses the MAP gas torches instead of the propane ones because they operate at a higher heat level which makes doing the job much faster. Do yourself a favor and invest the extra money to get the MAP gas torch. You'll be glad you did!

love this trigger, easy screw-on torch for portable torch needs. Also love the on/off knob, super convenient and easy to use. Dependable too, always works!

If you ever plan on using a torch more than a couple times in one setting, you'll appreciate the trigger-start feature instead of using a flint sparker. A must for connecting more than a handful of copper fittings, stripping paint, or similar tasks.
