Holy cr4p - this sucker pumps out heat.
The first impression of this torch is that it is a stylish and sexy piece of equipment.
My initial uses - this torch can really get things hot. It is a fairly fine flame - capable of a fine point - but very intense. It doesn't have the wide flame of my Mid-Range - which allows me to easily make an entire mandrel of beads - I can easily do 8 beads at a time on the Mid-Range. The flame width is about the same as the Nortel Minor - but more intense. You really have to turn it down or work further out if you want to work cooler.
I'm currently running it off 2 concentrators - a 9 litre and a 5 litre. It is certainly possible to boil colours that you didn't know could boil.
I think I'd actually like to have one of these mounted on top of my Mid-Range.

My first impression is quite favourable - I'll keep you posted as I go.
