I view the “top element/side element” argument as a recommendation, but not the absolute Word. I have a Paragon Fusion 14 with top elements only, and it fuses wonderfully. The only issue I have is that with a 14″ fire brick kiln, running on 120V, it has difficulty getting up to high-temp firing temps quickly (e.g., pot melts, combings). But it works great with regular fusing, slumps, etc. I even (quite successfully) do drops in the kiln where the glass is probably only 1″, if that, from the elements.
