So what I like;
Base stays on
Fuel level window
Easy adjustable flame level
Adjustable flame width
Longer barrel for safety
What I don't like:
If you are older, have weak or arthritic hands, this is not a good choice. It's very difficult to hold the butane open and so its forces you to lock the butane open. This may be a safety issue and must be used with extreme caution.
Most of the reviews for this product compliment its reliability and build quality. And compared to the recommended products like Vector or Blazer, it's extremely cheap.
Some of the reviews give one star, saying the torch lights very inconsistently, leaks butane, etc. I decided the risk was worth it and bought this torch.
Lo and behold, my torch arrives and is nothing but trouble.
First, it was extremely difficult to get butane in there reliably. I couldn't tell if I was filling it up, as no gas sounds were heard. Also, the fuel gague on this is worse than useless.
Second, the reliability of the torch is basically zero. Like many other reviews have claimed, my product lights at best one time out of ten, which is totally umacceptable.
Third, when the torch does light, I only get about 20 seconds of good flame out of it before it begins to noticably wither. After about 30 seconds, the flame is too weak to use for its intended purpose--less a jet and more a bic lighter.
Fourth, the build quality is disappointingly shoddy. The metal seems low quality, the buttons are all hard plastic, and pieces are joined together loosely.
I ended up returning this torch and buying a Messermeister FT-12 instead. It has no negative reviews, has many compliments on its nuild quality and reliability, appears to be identical in build to tbe Vector torches, is ostensibly a professional-grade device, and is only $20 more.
If you can't afford to buy a higher quality torch, I would recommend buying this one from BB&B, so when it breaks you can return it and exchange it for another one right away.
