Review for Nerrad Tools FIREJET Blow Torch NTFJ500 by Bennetts Safe Gas
12th February 2022

Terrible

If I could have tested this before I purchased one I would have never got it.

Its over priced with a massive flame. The arm isnt angled enough and you cant help burning surroundings.

Its easy to clean but after opening if for only 3 months its become loose and wobbles about. Ive seen other engineers with the same torch in a much poorer condition.

Dont waste your money.

Oh you also cant change the head for a smaller flame. It is what it is and thats it.

Had one for around a year loved it then I had a fault on it very disappointing had a few rothernbergs for as long as I can remember and never had any problems other than solder in the tip the down side to nerrad is you have to send the torch back to them first but true to there word they got it back it was faulty and they sent a new one out and it was pretty quick I would have rather have just popped into the local merchants and got a change over.
It’s my go to torch I have a few bits from nerrad and very happy with all of it and yes I do think it’s worth the doe

Didn’t get on with the torch, flame nozzle too large, more suitable for larger pipe work. Best part was the cool tip that separates for solder removal.

I was quite excited to get this and remained so for at least a fortnight. however, nozzle broke and ignitor broke on the replacement one that I got. Nerrard appear to know that they have an issue but don't do anything about it. so carry your old rothenberger as back up

Really poor poor torch.
Over priced for something that breaks every 2 minutes. Ignition lead a big problem and should be taken off the shelves until the problems fixed

So disappointed in this product, looked like a great idea but using it just seems to take longer to get the job done, the buttons started to stop working after a few weeks and slowly started to wobble and fall apart. I infored my nerad rep and he has replaced the torch but I'm yet to unpack it as I had to buy a new rofy fire torch.

Was very disappointed with this as have always had a super fire. My merchants recommend I try this as they was the 'bees knees' 2 days later and mine wouldn't work. Merchants apparently couldn't get a replacement from nerrad and weren't returning their calls. I even spoke to a rep but he didn't deal with my area. Merchants swapped for a super fire 2, and took all the nerrad tools of the shelf as the poor service hey had. I was 1 of 5 who had a faulty torch. They only sold 5

Been using one of these torches for awhile now. Must have one of the updated ones as I love this. Never had any problems with it and it has some nice design features. Had to bin my last two super fire torches due to the threads striping and preventing them connecting to the gas bottle. Hopefully this is not an issue with this torch as it has a replaceable brass connection.

Noticed there's a few bad reviews on this. Anybody got one? What's your thoughts on it? Or is there a better one I shoudl get?

Answered on 21st May 2021 by Jj Construction

Yes and it’s the mutts nuts I am not sure about the bad reviews but don’t buy one from eBay there was a faulty batch and they are not under nerrad warranty there customer service is spot on tho

Answered on 21st May 2021 by Gas Serve NW

Don't bother pal. I was gutted as I loved the idea and feel of it. Only lasted a couple of jobs. Currently back with Surefire 2. At least its reliable
