    Heavy Hitter 350 flex/valve TIG torch head

    Let's compare this Heavy Hitter 350 torch.


    Vs a Wuhan 26 cheapie.






    Handle is beefier






    Right off the bat, it is much beefier/heavier. Without a doubt part of the reason it can withstand more heat.






    Wuhan 26 about 130g





    HH350 almost double the mass at about 230g!





    I wasn't sure if had a special thread but it's the same as any 26. You can see it has much thicker OD, and the gas port is smaller, meaning less dead space for even more brass.




    Compared to a CK 17FV







    Now that I'm positive I can use a regular fitting, gonna fix up something real heavy-duty, Oscar-style!

    Anyone out there got a CK 26FV they can weigh?

    Oh by the way, this is the special version that does not have a gas port. The argon seeps through the actual threads themselves (hard to see in the pic)





































    Just Kidding! They moved the gas port to the top of the head! Very clever those Heavy Hitter boys! If I had to guess, the gas path splits up into a Y, then recombines at the top of the torch head. Seems that would provide the best uniform cooling, but it's just speculation on my part.

    I have the heavy 17v torch, whatever they call it. Definitely takes a lot more heat than my weldtec 17v.
