I paid the regular price of $80 and was well worth it. Main use was to sear my sous vide steaks and they come out great without the searzall.

What's better about this than any old torch? I've heard mostly about the searzall but if I understand I would need to buy this plus a searzall to help avoid the gas flavor when searing food?

Yes, you'd need the searzall attachment.

Amazon has the poor man's searzall on sale too. Says it fits TS8000: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RFTW7DR

Honestly, I'm not convinced that torch searing (even with a Searzall) is superior. I know that many people, including SousVideEverything, loves using the Searzall, but it seems to be mostly due to the impressive entertainment value for guests.

You can get as good a crust on a skillet, in addition to enhancing flavor with butter infused with thyme/rosemary/thyme/etc. No, you can't add butter to the sous vide pouch, it dilutes the taste. It has to be added during the searing process to enhance flavor.

This. I have a ts8000 and I can definitely say there is a huge difference in heat output as well as ease of use compared to some other torch heads, but for searing sous vide, I prefer a nice, hot cast iron skillet or a grill cranked way up. I've always found the sear from a torch to be less impressive in comparison; the color isn't as nice, it's more uneven, and the taste is flatter. Never used a searzall tho, so maybe that helps.
