Default Hot Head Torch

Just signed up for your website today. I have a HotHead Torch and currently using Moretti glass. How far can I push the torch, can I get beyond COE 104?

I used a HH for four years and found that satake glass melts like butter on it! I have heard of people using boro, but it is really slow melting. Try some satake glass, you will love it.

You can do anything but boro.
Satake is the FASTEST melting glass I've ever tried...i'm scared to try it on a minor. ;P

I've been successful with bullseye as well.
