Put those pot stand legs on an aluminum bodied stove and you'd have a winner.

Stove really needs a redo. Thanks for the test results Daren. How well do the joints on the legs function? Are they wobbley?

Do you think the fact that it's made of titanium is the reason why it stays on the market?

forgot to mention in the original post; it's PITA to fuel up. worse than a penny stove.

the legs are not wobbely at all. in fact, they are a bit hard to deploy.

yes. Titanium is the "status" 'packers material these days. personally, i hate the stuff. i'll take aluminum pots any day.

vargo has two other Ti stoves out now. one very similar to the triad, but with a built in priming pan. it's in two pieces and can be used with esbit tabs. the other is a side-burner with a big, wide base.

Daren, I got out my triad stove tonight and did a few test burns and got the same results as you in boil times. An eye dropper or flip top fuel dispenser is what is needed to keep from losing fuel during filling. The legs are sweet. I would love to find a supplier for the legs. I think mine will have to go in the stove curio cabinet. :lol:

They are tight in the hinge. Maybe after a thousand uses or so, they might start to get sloppy :lol:

The legs can also be stabbed into the ground for a very solid set up.
