    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - REALLY good build quality

    - Very long flame in torch mode

    - Two adjustable parameters - air/gas mix ratio (jet torch to lighter) and output gain (short to long flame)

    - Has LOCK switch

    - Lights up EVERY time in jet torch mode.

    Cons:

    - Does not start in lighter mode, need to switch to jet torch, light up and then switch to lighter.

    - Came in VERY corrupted box.

    - Does not auto adjust itself to pressure/gas quantity. When filled fully with gas, even in weekest gain setting will not fully function as torch, as too much gas/pressure causes it to chuckle and spit liquid gas, which, in turn, makes flame pulse jet to lighter and sometimes even go off. Need to keep on pushing/releasing the button to keep the gas pressure low enough. This is really anoying. When the gas level drops a little, starts working fine. REALLY fine :)

    - No window in gas chamber, so you will never know, how much gas is left there...

    Gas level

    OtherThoughts:

    I was expecting an average build quality and just a little longer flame than in ordinary lighters. And I got MUCH more than expected. And that price - maybe a mistake? :)

    Bottomline:

    I just could not stop playing with it for a couple of days. Really hope it LASTS. It does so far. If You need a tool similar to this - get it NOW. And if You don't need it yet - get it anyway.
