Mines seen better days which isn't bad for about 4 years so instead of just blindly going out and buying a super fire 2 again just seeing what else is available.

Super Fire 2 for me. Hardy wee thing, so I wouldn’t bother with anything else.
Be careful what it costs. You might find you can buy the new torch with a kit of Roth tools, hot bag or tote, gas bottle(s) pipe slice(s), grips, etc for similar price as just the torch.

I've used the turbo torch for a few years now which has lifetime warranty if I get any issues with it just send it back they service it and send it back free post in the meantime I use a spare.

No, I jest, it is a toy torch. I ran out of gas at a customers house and she suggested I use that rather than go out to the van. I thanked her, never tried it but it found its way in to my toolbox...

Was that the Superfire mark 1 ?
Yes. If you don't pump it up enough you get the flame thrower effect.
A right long jet of under pressure petrol.



I use this for lip joints Best. Have you still got one?

Nothing will solder whilst there is water in the pipe as it only allows the joint to heat up to 100 deg C, whereas solder melts at about 230 deg C.

The solder will only run once the residual water has turned to steam and left the vacinity.
