Definitely better than what I had
I've had 2 made by Benzomatic with the push button, self igniting nozzle that haven't held up. Bought the TT because it was recommended by a Plumber who used it in his business,. While I haven't done any soldering yet, it burns hotter, has a controllable and direct flame and the swivel nozzle will certainly aid in getting into some small spaces to solder.
ProsHot, hot and more hot !!!!
ConsIt would be great if it had a self igniter! But only to the extent that it worked as well as the tip. However, keeping a striker with it eliminates that problem and keeps TT lighter.
