Description

Small weight. Big flame.

MSR designed its SuperFly Stove to be light, compact, and versatile while still dishing out serious backcountry BTUs. Built with top-shelf materials, this backpacking stove is compatible with a wide variety of fuel canisters, making it convenient for international travel.
  • Large, serrated burner distributes the flame widely while gripping cookware securely
  • Multi-Mount interface fits most domestic and international fuel canisters
  • Ultra-fast three-minute boil time makes heating water super-easy
  • Wide flame disperses heat for more even cooking
  • Full flame control knob lets you go from simmer to roaring boil in seconds
  • Optional push-button AutoStart ignition system gets the flame rolling without a lighter or matches
  • Optional AutoStart system re-ignites itself when partially blown out
  • Note: freezing temps can reduce the performance of canister stoves, so you may want to go with a liquid fuel stove for wintertime trips
  • Note: fuel canister sold separately

Excited to use it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just got my stove and it looks awesome. Super light weight and simple construction. Haven't used it yet, but once we get warmer temps I am excited to put this to use

Less clogs than the other msr stoves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was indifferent to which stove I got since there are pros and cons to each. I have been very happy with this stove. I have never had a clog while my friends have had pocket rockets clog a few times.
Worked we'll at 8000ft in the 35-40 ranges.

For packing efficiency I screw off the top

Great Investment!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Needed a bigger stove to take when backpacking with my three boys - this was perfect during a recent trip. Heats up quickly boiling water/cooking pasta. Flame can really be dialed down too - goes plenty low enough to cook pancakes and simmer beans! Wide pot supports make it plenty stable even with a full 2 liter pot on top! I like the fact that it can be used with multiple brands of canisters - had good luck with both the Jetboil and even some old GAZ canisters! This is my third MSR stove (whisperlight, pocket rocket, and Superfly) all have performed flawlessly! Great quality - I believe they are still built in the USA too! Good investment - like all MSR products! I'll pass this one down to my boys!

Works Every Time

Great stove that I've used for years. Has literally worked every time I've ever needed it too and I don't have anything negative to report on. It releases a little gas when you unscrew it but all my stoves do. I do like how small it is and it does a great job warming up my bigger pots and gets water boiling fast compared to my older stoves. You can't go wrong with the Superfly and I would defiantly recommend this to anybody who likes quality stoves that will last a long time. (I still use my Jetboil as my primary stove because I'm a solo hiker these days).

reliable and light weight

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this stove for years; it comes w/ me on every adventure. This one replaced my old Whisperlite and I've never looked back. I did however keep the wind shield and used it w/ the SuperFly. Woops, I melted the piezocrystal starter. As it turns out, this stove is engineered with a build in wind shield. I have never had a problem with the stove or the MSR Isofuel tanks; it is reliable in adverse conditions. When you pack the stove away, don't put it anywhere near your air mattress, the swivel style arms where you place your water pot can poke holes in your other gear.

Great for the trail.

Great stove with a big burner that still only weights in at 4.5oz!

Good stove

Very good stove. It can be turned down to simmer low enough to keep from burning your noodles, or cranked up to boil cod water in just a few minutes. Used it on an 8 day self supported bike packing adventure in B.C. My partner had a Snow Peak GigaPower, also with an auto ignitor, and we did several two pot meals, so I got a good comparison. My thoughts: Both light easily. The GigaPower is smaller and comes with a little plastic case like the Pocket Rocket (which would probably be a better comparison)and is lighter than the Superfly, but you already knew that. The SuperFly simmers better. We got some onions burn-stuck to the bottom of the pan with the GigaPower, but never with the SuperFly. Both are impressive at full power, but the GigaPower boils water faster. I like the fuel control valve better on the MSR than the GigaPower, it feels more positive when shutting it off, and it folds up better. After a few uses the MSR's pot supports start to warp and become more difficult to swivel together, where the GigaPower's swivels are under the fire and therefore don't warp as bad. The SuperFly has a frightening habit of leaking gas when unscrewing it. I hate to say it, but this was designed to fit pretty much any canister, and it does - we used the Snow Peak ProIso canisters for both - but the one size fits all downside is that it doesn't fit as well as a purpose built screw-on fitting. If you are quick you can minimize the fuel leaking when unscrewing, but this trait was unsettling to me, especially when you forget and are taking this down when another stove is burning. Thankfully no fire ball erupted, but think before you dismantle. The final words: Good stove if you like to get gourmet in the woods. Simmers better than some others on the market and starts reliably. Take care when packing up and enjoy!

can multi mount be put onto a bivouac...

can multi mount be put onto a bivouac stove(Gaz) so it can use the threaded fuel canisters? We cannot find gaz canisters in the US but love the bluet stove and small lanterns. Uses 270 plus gaz.

is there an adaptor for the clip on system to convert it to the screw on?

This stove rips

Used it for the first time to make some soup for lunch during a ski trip. Just warmed up the fuel inside my jacket for a few mins and had no problems boiling a leiter of water. Def took 3 mins maybe even less. This stove is the $h!+, can't wait to take it backpacking this summer.

This s#%t is HOT!

Really, it's a good hot stove. I like the new school hook up. It only releases a little fuel into the air. No more "ok, hold your breath!"[unscrew]

boils soup in just under 35 seconds

i have had this stove for going on about ten years now. It's been my go-to stove for almost all my backpacking adventures. i just now used it to heat up a can of soup for my lunch break at work. i timed the boil time of the soup, just out of curiosity, and was pleased to see it reach a nice roiling boil in about 35-40 seconds. i usually take one 8 oz canister with me for up to a 3-5 day trip and have never really run out while in the backcountry. after ten years my stove is still in great condition as well. it has the usual slight discoloration on the supports from being subjected to high heat for so much time. that certainly hasn't affected the performance one iota. i will continue to use this stove until it breaks, at which point i will promptly buy another one.

MSR Stove, Top Quality

i've had one for a couple years now and this stove top is far superior than any other i've seen. A bit pricy, and I wouldn't have splurged for this one if it wasn't given to me as a present by my awesome gf, but if you are looking for top quality and have the resources, go for it.

Yes, the MSR multi-mount interface adapter on the Superfly stoves will work with the Gaz easy-clic valve on the 270 and 470 plus canisters.

My stove is brand new but the auto igniter won't lite the stove.

Responded on

Sometimes the tip or mount of the igniter gets a little tweaked or twisted and ends up too far away from the burner head to arc properly. Try gently moving it a bit closer and hit the switch. If that doesn't do it, it's going to be a warranty issue and you should get it replaced.

Best Answer Responded on

Try lighting the stove with a pot/pan on top. This creates more concentration of gases around the electrode.

Responded on

I didn't even think to ask- At what altitude are you trying to use it? If you're above 8000ft, that could also be the problem.

Responded on

Very true, however I'm a bit luckier. My ignitors work successfully up to 10,000 feet before they crap out.

Responded on

I have had a number of appliances that are supposed to work with the self-igniter. Virtually every one of them have failed within three days of using them the first time. Maybe I am just throwing off strong vibes that break them hahaha but I would advise just buying the item without them and use a small bic. Works virtually every time. Break those piezo pieces of crap off and rest your mind and the fraction of an ounce it loses will rest your back.

I want to use the MSR quick 2 system...

I'm trying to decide between the pocket rocket and the superfly

Im concerned about the packability of the superfly,
Im concerned about the efficiency and stability of the pocketrocket with the quick 2 pots

any comments?
What about a jetboil with the pot stand?

Responded on

The Superfly would fold down and fit into the Quick 2 system - between the two, I'd probably go with that one.

If you're considering something outside that, I think the MSR WindPro is one of the finest canister stoves ever made. A few ounces heavier than the Superfly, but with the ability for better wind protection, even better simmering, etc.

good stove

Pros: small, light. MSR quality. Sturdy pot holders, also there are 4 so that is a plus. Gets water boiling really quickly because it has a big flame ring. Easy to simmer.

Cons: auto-ignite hasn't worked once for me yet. Pot holders are sharp and do not pack well, i'm always worried about putting a hole in my bag when I pack it. Havne't found any way to nest it yet.

My buddy uses the pocket rocket, which in my opinion has less sturdy pot holders, and it definitely has a smaller flame base...but he said he can nest it in his Quick 2 cups. Also the Pocket Rocket only has 3 pot holder prongs while the Superfly has 4. Something to keep in mind.

Honestly, I would advise you to go with the Soto Micro Regulator. It is a great stove that packs down extremely small, pressurizes the gas canister so virtually all fuel is used in multiple altitudes/temperatures, and has a ignition system that lays across the burner which is much more stable and strong than the ignition sysytems off to the side of the burner,as you can see with the Superfly.

Very pleased so far

I bought this cuz my jet boil doesnt do pancakes or scrambled eggs (anything that requires a skillet) very well...and i love my morning pancakes when camping. the pot supports are nice and wide to hold a skillet or pot very stable, but i do wish they folded in somehow so that the stove could be packed into a nice little container instead of it being an awkward shape and having to put it in a stuff sack. Thats my only minor complaint... I've only used it for one small trip so far, but I like it already.

Simmering Ability vs. Pocket Rocket or Brunton Raptor and Flex

How precise is the flame control? I'm looking to get one of these for ultralight outings this summer but was hoping to pick up one with more than just pure boiling capability if possible.

Best Answer Responded on

This stove simmers exceptionally well. A point that I think you've picked up on is that a stove's simmering capability is not only dependent on how well it regulates the fuel, but the flame pattern can have significant impact on how well the heat is dissipated. The SuperFly's flame pattern is one of the best and will allow you to cook as gourmet as you want while miles into the backcountry. The PocketRocket isn't the best at this because it's flame pattern is highly concentrated into a small area although the flame can be regulated fairly well.

Another stove to consider is the MSR WindPro. This is a light stove at 6.8 oz, but not quite as light as the SuperFly (4.6 oz.). It has the same burner head as the SuperFly, but has a lower profile (translation: is far more stable when using larger pots) and can be used with a windscreen. The reason is it's a satellite canister stove, not a sit-on-top type. Not only will the wind screen make the stove more efficient, it will also help to keep heat trapped in, thus making it one of the best gourmet stoves you can buy. It uses a canister and has one of the best fuel regulators (allowing for a more consistent simmer) available today.

Yet another stove would be the MSR DragonFly. It is a multi-fuel stove (can be used with diesel, white gas, unleaded gas, kerosene, etc.). It is not compatible with a IsoPro Canister however. This stove is the best at simmering of any MSR stove made! For a multi-fuel stove that is saying a lot... It isn't ultra-light (weighs in at 17 oz), but if you want one stove to work in cold weather, be indestructible, easy to maintain, great pot-supports, use of multiple fuels (less money to operate), and something you can pass down to your grandkids, this is the one!

I've used a Flex quite a bit and am pretty impressed. It doesn't burn as hot as the SuperFly or WindPro, but packs up really small. It's simmering capabilities are very good. However for the money, I would go with the SuperFly. The main reason is the SuperFly's dependability. One concern with canisters are the threads on the valve which can easily be damaged. Because the SuperFly bypasses these using it's unique clamping mechanism, you can rely on it far more than any other stove out there. It can also use multiple types of canisters (there are 40 different types of canisters in the world...the SuperFly will work on 30 of the 40). The SuperFly doesn't pack as small, but it's larger burner head will give better cooking results based on my own personal experience.

The Raptor is ok, but it suffers from poor wind resistance. It's simmering isn't that great due to the design of the burner head, but the price is good. I guess you get what you pay for... It isn't a bad value when you consider it comes with a piezo ignition, but I tend to steer away from stoves that have this. The reason is they will inevitably fail and then you're left with a stove that doesn't work properly.
