    Just bought the superfire 2, for £91 with 2 bottles of propane and 2 bottles of mapp. Never used mapp before what is the diffrence between the two gasses apart from it being a higher heat? would you use it for larger diameter pipes?

    Shame you probably coulda got all that for £75 if u looked round a little....


    the difference is the higher heat, and yes wider pipes and also i find outdoors if its been cold its just a tad quicker.

    for an extra couple of quid id get the mapp each time

    I use a Bernzomatic TS7000, apparently identical to a Rothy superfire, just a different badge.

    I agree though cheap tools are usually false economy, but in saying that I have bought some cheapo stuff which has got me out a tight spot!!

    I've made my mind up - I'm going to get the Bullfinch soon as my Benzomatic is rather worse for wear now.

    Well,at the moment, I'm a world away from you guys working in the industry.
    I'm only 5 months into my 2 year 6129 course but when I asked my tutor which blow torch to buy he said without hesitation a Rothenberger Superfire2.Thats good enough for me £52 from CityPlumbing.

    Mate has just bought the new Bullfinch Firepower torch. Knocks spots off the Benzomatic. Makes for very speedy working when soldering up 28mm fittings today. Will definitely be getting one.

    It's all British too!
