          Who makes the Diamondback torch Miller sells with the tig runner packages? Is it a Weldcraft exclusive to Miller? The best water cooled torch I've ever used.

          For air cooled I use a 250 amp weldcraft, flex head.
          If only they made a flex head water cooled torch as light and small as a Diamondback...

            Diamondback torchs are no longer made, Miller includes Weldcraft now with their machines. While Weldcraft makes a very nice product all my torchs are CK, a little more money than Weldcraft but very nice also IMO.

                Can't go wrong with Victor. Harris isn't bad either. I have both and can't complain about either. It is easier to find Victor tips and parts, however...much easier.

                    i like victor. smith is good too, i just don't like where they put the oxygen knob. i wouldn't get the solid body ones, you may want to put a resebud or welding tip on.

                      The Blueshield torches by Air Liquide are extrodanary torches , i have the strictly cutting 2'' head and demolition handle , it is ausome .. I would have to say tho for money wise the Victor or victor style torches are the best for the money, i've had my victor for about 5 years now and no problems, i use it everyday too so it shows that it is a good investment, the thing about my Blueshield torch is it's strictly a cutting torch so i have the victor for the other things.

                          Put my vote in for Smith. 100% American, unsurpassed quality,best warranty in the business, and a tip mix design for safety. Add to that the Dual Guard torch design in the better torches and you have the safest torch on the market.

                          And no, I don't, nor did I ever, work for Smith. Just sold 'em all for 20 years and found Smith to be the best...
