No. Here is my response from page 2 of this thread, posted back in 2006, explaining the Mongoose:

Pretty elaborate/creative joke. And, the punchline is in the name, "Mongoose" since a Mongoose kills snakes, particularly Cobras.
GTT does make a four stage torch, though. The line is called Quadzilla.

There are also attachments that allow you to inject compressed air into GTTs to thin out and cool off the flame.
working glass since 1990 - melting it on a torch since 2002
