Question I think I need a new torch

I am looking for guidance to help me decide which torch to buy.

I have been using a GTT Cricket hooked to my NG line and two 5LPM concentrators. I recently took a blown beads class and really want to do do this but I don't think I have enough heat. The glass gather seems to be cooling too quickly so I need to use more glass, but my flame does not seem big enough.

In class, we used Nortel minors with propane and tanked oxygen. I don't want to get involved with tanked oxygen since I work in the basement and I don't want to have to move them.

I am considering a Minor or a Mini CC.

I've also looked at a Bobcat but I'm not sure how much hotter it would be than what I have now.
