    Torch and IH give different results. I used my IH exclusively for many months when I first got it, now I'm about 50/50, which is why I'm thinking about getting a nice home torch. I've got a couple Vertigo triples that work fine.

    I prefer using a double flame torch with my Shadow M. I put the cap between the flames which are perpendicular to the M, not parallel or heating the whole cap. It gives me the precision of a single with a faster speed.

    The one I have is a Blazer Venture but it looks like a black version of this one: https://www.amazon.com/Vertigo-Lotus-Double-Lighter-Warranty/dp/B00M262HJW

    I need to buy 1 to see if my C-Vap is any good. I tried the bury the flame BIC method and didn’t get any vapor.

    Propane Bernzomatic is king. Throwback to my first experiences with concentrates with a straight glass pipe.

    edit: I’m kidding, but in a pinch...

    Never ever ever buy from elighters.com, these guys ripped me off.

    Ever since I got IH, that's definitely been getting most of my attention. But when it comes to certain pieces, like Ddave's water wand, I still have better results with a torch for some reason

    I was lighting my grill a couple days ago, thinking that a torch would work better than the soft flame lighter I've been using. So, Firefox is ordered. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    @Planck, did you mention that there's an easy way to remove the child safety lock?

    Yes, the safety is a swing arm affair. I cut off the arm and left the pivot. I used and exacto saw, a friend used side cutters. Both methods worked.
