Pros : This kit is a great starter kit, especially if you want to make sure you like lampwork without a huge investment. It comes with everything you need but protective eyewear and MAPP gas. Worth every penny!
Cons : The instructional video is non informative. I just researched lampworking forums and videos and made some great beads after.
Other Thoughts : I am super happy with my purchase! I have managed to pull nice colors from some of the special silver glasses on my torch even thought it isn't as hot and propane/oxygen torch.
Pros : The kit itself is excellent for a beginner and getting started
Cons : The "instructional DVD" advertised on the box cover is a joke. Leave it out or make it truly instructional!
Other Thoughts : The instructional DVD should include setting up the torch and making a bead more in detail. Rods are round but video shows a rectangular piece of glass that I've never seen and am not sure where you would even purchase. If I didn't know about beadmaking before I got the kit, I would have been very disappointed in the DVD and would have returned the kit.
