  • Best DX torch!

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Looks & Feels like a professional tool

    Propane-viewing window

    Consistent reliable easily adjustable flame height 2-5cm.

    Looks like a lightsabre handle.

    Cool looking red flame

    Safety & flame lock (not very safe tho)

    Cons:

    This is not a lighter. It's a bloody torch. (see 3425 for a good lighter-torch)

    Not a flamethrower. May be modifiable

    No 'torch' mode - only jet flame

    Not sure if I can cook with red flame

    Packaging I received was quite damaged - but torch OK.

    Either burns a lot of or leaks butane - not sure yet

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I've had a lot of DX torches, incl 6824, 7745, and 3425.

    This is far better than the 7745, or competing pen torches.

    The Honest 6824 is a good alternative workshop torch, has more flame options, but poorer build quality.

    If you want something to use as a lighter, look at 3425.

    Both 3425 and 6824 are better flamethrowers out of the box. (3425 easily modified past reasonable safety levels)
