    I am definitely pleased to see this little gem given a new lease of life! Still have my original one! Great little stove. And the workhorse of many a brew up in my local Territorial Army Queens Infantry Rifles days in the nineties.

    If you have your original no need to wait though, because you've already got it. Unless you particularly need to save whole grammes you might as well stick with what you have.

    Get an Alpkit Kraku. Save Pounds and grammes.

    Yeah, the Kraku's fantastic unless you're cooking with a big pot, when the short pot stabilisers become a bit of a problem. They also don't work particularly well with big pots with heat exchangers.

    Useda pocket rocket for many years and its still going strong and once was described by a friend as a gas tap because of its out put, but the pot stands are not the best adding to stability issuesof canister top burners

    I went to a JetboilFlashfor a time but that didn't work out so I sold it and now my main stove is an Alpkit Koro which I think is a great little stoveand much more stable

    I am probably being just a little mite bit pedantic here, on the bit above there, about this stove still putting out the therms; but surely a therm is an actual proper specific heat measurement, of which surely this stove would find it hard work putting out one therm alone let alone multiple therms in reality? I could be wrong but think ages ago on here on a stove thread, cp told us what a therm was exactly. And it was much more than any of my stoves were capable of putting out heat wise. That bit I actually definitely recall I am sure.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Therm

    'Therm
    noun


    noun: therm; plural noun: therms

    • a unit of heat, especially as the former statutory unit of gas supplied in the UK equivalent to 100,000 British thermal units or 1.055 ◊ 108 joules.'

    Today you'll pick the game Counter strike as there will not be same Half -Life sport selections as possible use. Now you should give your host for what type of machine it's or a name that discovers it.

    Just thought I would link in this thread to the newer review of this stove from Jon last month on here. Definitely still a great outdoors stove, and one of my personal all time favourites taboot.Adventures in Stoving also recently covered the new 2017 version of the stove, at link there too below if anyone else is interested maybe.
