Posted:That sounds really strange to me. Are both the clubs and staff equally as used? Brand new and really old wicks arent as good as a semi-new wick. Are they both made the same way? Flame size is usually relative to wick surface area (ie - cube wicks will burn bigger than rounded wicks). What fuel are you using and are you using the same on both?
You can get bigger/brighter flames using white gas or coleman fuel (as opposed to kerosene or paraffin) but they burn out quicker.
Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes. We'll blaze a new trail, and torch the rough patches.
