The big dog in any fight the Blazer Big Shot GT 8000 is a truly professional grade butane torch. Solid US design and Japanese manufacturing there isn't a single piece on the Big Shot that we don't like. Extremely precise flame control via the gas flow knob allows you to easily dial in the exact size of flame you're trying to achieve. The ignition is handled by a state of the art Piezo crystal instant spark that ignites the first time, every time. It boasts 35 minutes of full burn time at 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. Filling the GT8000 with butane is always an easy experience. We've literally never felt such a seamless connection between lighter and bottle. On most torches there is always some "spit" that occurs when refilling with bottled butane but with the Big Shot the seal is perfect.
We're willing to bet that if you get this torch you'll own it for the rest of your life and will someday hand it down as a fully functional antique to your grand children... who will wonder what life was like when people used torches; as opposed to lasers.
