Have a lynx, so I have an upgrade question re: scorpion or sidewinder
 
If I already have a lynx, is there any reason to get the bobcat center on a scorpion or sidewinder, because I already have a lynx? Since different torches are good for different things, would a bobcat somehow serve me to fill a need that having a lynx centerfire would not?

It would be run on a 10 and 2 5's as concentrators, (that would be the deciding factor on scorpion vs. sidewinder....) but the centerfire choice, I would think if I could afford the lynx, then do that... but.. I already have a lynx. Would the fact the scorpions and sidewinders are made for concentrators make a difference to how that lynx centerfire performs?

Thank ya! =)

Lynx does all the Bobcat does plus so much more.
Have you considered selling the Lynx and getting the larger torch (Sidewinder) with Lynx center?

The sale would offset the cost of the Sidewinder/Lynx which is about $1k right now. 20lpm total seems adequate for most work but is not yet maxing out that torch.

Good luck with your decision.
PM me if you consider selling the Lynx. I'd be interested if it's in good shape.

Hmmmm that's an interesting idea. I am currently wavering between the scorpion and the Bravo.... and I know scorpions are built for concentrators... but I don't know much about Sidewinders.

If I do go the route of anything GTT with a lynx centerfire, I will keep you in mind. =) I don't need two lynxes.

Mountain Glass Arts has both of these in stock right now. Your not gonna save much if anything on a used one.
