Default Bobcat and Lynx question...

For those of you who have either worked or own both of these torches, how much hotter is the Lynx than the Bobcat?? I do believe my generator can run the Lynx without problems. (up to 15lpm at 15-18psi)

So, in your opinion, what is the significant difference in performance of the two? I'm interested in a decent boro torch, and I fell in love with GTT after getting the Bobcat anyway.

The Triple Mix makes the Lynx hotter. You can make a boro marble up to 2" (or a little bigger) with the Lynx, while you cannot get that big with a Bobcat.
The Lynx has a greater variety of flame sizes/types available. If you ever get into Inside-Out work (or if you work inside of flairs), you will really like the long pencil-like flame you can get with the Lynx.

Also, the Lynx is more fuel and oxygen efficient than the Bobcat (a standard torch).
