    Turbotorch TX504 is my weapon of choice. Find it much better than the SF. Never tried Nerrad's.

    I use the Rothenberger trigger torch with Propane mainly. Nice not to have a bottle of gas in your hand as it gives you more control and it can fit in tight spaces. Not cheap though! As a general rule I think that Mapp gas burns too hot for small pipework like 15 and 22mm. Can get the flux too hot resulting in a poor joint. Just my opinion!

    I'm tempted by turbotorch tx504 I've been tolled that you get a much more contained flame making soldering in awkward areas better , have you any thoughts on this as a owner ? I've got the Rothy

    Anyone else purchased a Nerrad firejet ?
    I'm in need of a replacement after having a bullfinch firepower die on me after 6 months.
    Would normally go for SF 2 but saw Nerrad advertising in last months installer mag and fancied a change.
    Thoughts anyone ?
