The BernzOmatic trigger-started flame control torch head is an adjustable self-igniting torch head designed for easy operation. Simply pull the trigger for ignition, and release it to turn off. This head produces a swirl flame and burns propane or mapp gas in the included cylinder. Pressure regulation allows the flame to burn in any direction and ensures consistent performance. Even while the flame burns, the replaceable brass tip stays cool. BernzOmatic backs its torch head with a 1-year limited warranty.
From the Manufacturer
Fire up this torch head with the pull of a trigger for adjustable flame control when soldering, sweating, heating or melting. The unit is pressure regulated for consistent performance during detailed operations. Swirl action flame heats up work extremely fast. A cool tip keeps you from burning yourself if fingers and torch head accidentally meet. And, a lock button eases stress on the trigger finger for continuous use. The unit operates off propane or mapp gas.

After screwing the TS7000 to a propane or MAPP gas cylinder, turn the red control knob to "on". Pull the knob in like a trigger, and the mechanical internal igniter clicks audibly, which starts the flame instantly. Hold the control knob in and the flame stays on. Release it and the gas (and flame) shuts off immediately. In other words, you can use this torch with one hand. Once the torch is lit, if you press the lock button in and then release the control knob, the torch will stay lit for continuous use, without touching any controls. Turn the control knob to off when you are done and the flame stops and the gas is shut off.
The adjustment knob controls gas volume from off to wide open. In use that means you can control flame size from just enough to stay lit, to full on. By comparison, the TS4000T torch is identical to this model except it has no volume control, so the TS4000T flame burns only at maximum. If you only need a torch to light the barbecue or for other uses where maximum flame will always be OK, consider the less expensive TS4000T. However, if a maximum flame won't always be appropriate for the task at hand, you're better off with the TS7000T. (As you can see in the customer photo, the torch itself is labeled TS7000, not TS7000T).
The torch head won't get hot enough to burn you -- a great safety feature. By contrast, the head on my older gas torch glows cherry red while in use.
Bernzomatic's claim that the torch flame "swirls" to produce high heat is actually true. On full flame, it's like a small focused blow torch. It used to take 30 seconds or longer for copper fittings to get hot enough to sweat (tin solder) with my previous MAPP gas torch. The TS7000 gets the fittings hot in only a few seconds; an amazing performance improvement and time saver. (By the way, if you're a homeowner doing your own copper plumbing, use MAPP gas rather than propane. MAPP gas burns hotter, which makes soldering easier and faster.)
Although this product clearly warrants 5 stars, the instruction sheet is another matter. To save money, it covers 9 Bernzomatic torches, in 3 languages, and is printed in a very tiny font (35 characters per inch!). Would it kill these manufacturers to include instructions for JUST the one tool, with larger print?
The TS7000 is a brilliantly designed and manufactured torch that is straightforward to use and works as it is supposed to. A first-rate product.
This is a dramatic improvement. Well constructed, lights immediately with every trigger pull, flame is steady as a rock in all orientations -- I love it. I'm not sure about the need for this quality torch to light fireworks like one reviewer reported, but if you use a torch for miscellaneous household projects I highly recommend this one. It is a little heavier than I expected, but I decided this helps balance the weight of the gas bottle.
I chose this one over the TS4000 because you can adjust the flame strength and I can't imagine using a torch full blast for all jobs.
Someone complained about the instructions -- I don't remember reading the instructions, it's pretty straightforward if you've used a propane torch before.
