I have a Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch that normally screws on to 1lb tanks. Used it for years without issue. For tight spaces I wanted an extension hose.
Enter the Flame King YSNMT48:
Smaller diameter than expected 3/8" vs 1/2" for added flexibility.
Braded outer sheath that feels and looks better than rubber hose.
Tight fitting threads and no-leak valve.
Issue: At first, I thought the threads were wrong and wouldn't work because I couldn't screw it on to my torch head. Instead, I carefully held the torch connector end in a Vise while pressing and threading it on to the torch head. Much more difficult than normally threading the torch head onto a tank. BUT once it was screwed on...it was on there and NO LEAKS. If I only tried to screw it on by hand, I could see how it would leak (as others have said), but that's only because it actually wouldn't be threaded on all the way.
Bottom line: I would much rather have a tight-fitting hose without leaks than something that's easy to screw on and leaks. Very much enjoying the new hose and flexxy functionality. Lastly, nice Brass finish and smooth working valve with good, knurled grip and no leaks.
