It really depends on what you are going to make. If you're starting out with beads you will probably be working smaller than you think for longer than you think. If you are starting with boro and marbles or pipes you definitely want to start with as much as you can. The lynx is the center fire for the phantom and the mirage. I also have a gtt and I can use my center fire to make 2" marbles but it takes a lot longer. It's all about your patience level. The detail work people use the tiny flame for is not for laying down glass, it is more for the manipulation. John uses the smaller flame when he's cleaning up the ends of the lines he puts down, but not for laying down the lines.
I hope that helps answer a little of your questions.
