Great Improvement over Pocket Rocket
I got the opportunity to use this stove last summer on a 4 day backpacking trip. I have used the pocket rocket for many many years. The stove is lighter, packs up smaller and is more stable. MSR shorten the arms on the stove and made them stiffer. This improved the stability greatly over the pocket rocket. If also comes with an external piezo. It worked really good. Te hand held piezo protects the ceramic element to keep it working for many years of use (I hope).
