Hello!

Dual temp full size guns will give you the most versatility, but I find myself using a dedicated high temp gun most of the time. You get slightly better bonding and longer working time with a high temp gun. I just don't work with delicate materials too much and therefore keep a low temp mini handy in the off chance I use foam or other delicate material.

But a dual temp gun will work great for both occasions, its just up to you and your project.

I know that's a pretty non-committal answer, but it really is up to you. You can't go wrong either way. I work for a glue gun manufacturer and would be happy to answer any other questions you have.

I suspected there were pitfalls using dual-temp. I like the idea of a longer working time with the dedicated single-temp. Thanks for the info!
