Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mdubois much better than the ol' striker
hated fussing w/ the old striker, but could never get myself to pay $35 for the other automatic torch head; switched to using a lighter a while back, but that's still a bother. i happened to be passing by the torch aisle and noticed this torch head (maybe my local hd wasn't carrying it before) and grabbed it. soooooo much easier than using a striker, or even a lighter.
the flame is wider & probably burns a lot more fuel than the plain head i was using before, but this is still worth it for the ease. tho, you can dial down the flame to a pretty low level, so that'll help w/ fuel use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mooocowman 2 have failed
Both failed within 4 or 5 uses. Will not ignite and will not even burn using a striker or lighter. Like other users have reported, they get clogged or something. The gas sometimes varies up and down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer You still need the extension hose
I used this with the Benzomatic propane bottle to melt crack filler into my driveway. By virtue of melting something on the ground I needed to tilt the bottle on its side, revealing an issue with the torch head (but would most likely affect any other head as well). This would cause flare ups, slowing down my work. On its own the torch head is a good purchase, but you limit yourself if you do not also purchase the extension hose. The self igniting feature with the press of the red button is a nice feature. Every so often the flame would go out and I would have to depress the red button to get the flame going again. I'm not sure why the flame would go out, but it was easy enough to get it back going. This is simple to screw onto the bottle or extension hose.

2 out of 2 failed within ten minutes. I purchased one to do a quick sweat soldering job on 1/2" copper pipe. It worked for 5-10 minutes then the flame wet out and it refused to light again even using a lighter instead on the igniter button. It acted like it was clogged. No gas was getting through, and this was with a fresh bottle of propane. I've been sweat soldering pipe since the 70's. Even when it was working the shape and quality of the flame was not proper for sweating copper pipe. The blue part of the flame was 5-6 inches long and very thin needle-pencil point shape and no amount of adjustment would correct it. - So figuring it was a one-off dud, the following day I exchanged it for another. - Exact same thing happened. Improper flame and it quit working in under 10 minutes. Two bad in a row is a defective product. Bernzomatic , who USED to make good products, should be ashamed to be selling this junk.
