Default GTT "Cheater" torch, (no, not cheetah, lol) who else has heard of it?

As you may have seen on the forum recently, i have been looking for a new torch. Ive posted up on pretty much every forum and group im a part of to take in as much info as i could get.

Someone recommended the "new GTT cheater" and posted a pic of a GTT torch with 8 outer triple mix ports with a yellow jacket center and 3 silver knobs.

I told them i couldnt find it anywhere, not even on GTTs site. A google search doesnt even bring up much about it.

I called GTT and it is definitely something they make and sell though.

My dumb behind wasted all my time researching for nothing because when GTT said they had one coming out of the test lab that would be ready to ship today, i jumped on it.

Decided to take a risk for once which is out of character for me when it comes to buying expensive products lol.

I figured its a GTT so it probably wont be awful, but if it is, ill be sure to let you know.

2 stage triple mix torch. 4 port yellow jacket centerfire with and 8 port outer. Ill probably run both on 20 PSI oxy and 8 PSI propane as that falls within both of their range requirements. Might run the center off my 10LPM concentrator later on, not sure yet though.

im very excited to use it this weekend! Its a triple mix torch so the front set of knobs and the rear set of knobs each control the inner and outer stages. 2 of the knobs are oxy knobs, they just deliver oxygen to different places.

Always keep the blue outer oxy at least slightly cracked open.
