Mapp Pro Problem Hopefully Solved

I've seen a couple of posts where people are experiencing the "Flame Going Out" problem with the new Mapp Pro gas as I am. I saw this the other day at Home Depot and I had a gift card, so what the heck. I've tested it in the garage, and it seems that as long as the bottle is upright you can use the hand torch part in any direction with no problems. It also is self igniting when you pull the trigger which eliminate the hand sparker. Haven't been able to try it out yet on the egg though, as the rain in Atlanta has returned with a vengence. I believe I paid $59.99 for it. It's a little expesive, but a good new toy if you have a gift card! B)

    I wonder if the problem is not coming from the quality of the gas itself. For years I used the real stuff but last time at Home Depot all I could get was the Worthington brand that you show in your photo. Much less pressure, not close to the heat as the other brand and this bottle seems to go out much more often...
  • This is what I use too. Love it but do wish the wand was a few inches longer.
