Loud but good
I really like this stove. I've only used it with butane/propane so far but it has been great. At a recent campout there were several jokes that it sounds like a jet engine because it is so loud, but it is so effective that it didn't last long. It heats really well and seems to be fairly efficient. The base is wide and stable. It's easy to light. Weight is alright, maybe a bit on the heavy side but not a big deal.
