If the piezo lasts twice as long as the Bernz-O-Matic TS-4000, it will be worth it.
October 2, 2015
I have in my collection three Bernz-O-Matic TS-4000 MAPP gas torches, and none of them work. When the last one decided to crap out, I thought it was time to try another brand, so owning a set of Victor Acetylene torches, I thought I'd give their Turbo Torch a try.
My initial impression on unboxing the torch is that it feels cheaply constructed. The body being made of plastic, instead of the cast aluminum body of the Bernz-O-Matic I'm used to. All torches work when new, so in order for this one to justify the price (double that of the Bernz-O-Matic) the piezo igniter will need to last more than twice as long... Time will tell.
