Sorry to start another stove topic. I see there are many already and I've been reading them, but I haven't seen too much discussion on Gravity MF II.
At first I was looking to buy the OmniFuel because in general it receives very high reviews. But the Gravity MF II is 100 grams lighter, cheaper, supports all the fuels of the OmniFuel and so far got good reviews: http://www.trailspace.com/forums/climbing/topics/22914.html
Does anyone have experience with Gravity MF II vs OmniFuel? In particular reliability, simmer control (OmniFuel is supposedly superb at simmering), noise?
To complicate the choice I was also considering Nova+. I've read this thread [url=http://www.trailspace.com/forums/climbing/topics/22914.html]http://www.trailspace.com/forums/climbing/topics/22914.html
and many other reviews that say it's a good stove. I then found this site: [url=http://www.kolumbus.fi/j.py/Varusteet/Omni_e.html]http://www.kolumbus.fi/j.py/Varusteet/Omni_e.html
and if the measurements are correct, the Nova+ is extremely quiet. However, there are several claims that when you disconnect the hose from the bottle there's still fuel left in the line that leaks out - even with the flip bottle shut off that should get rid of the fuel and depressurize the bottle. Is this true? How about the Primus stoves? To me this would be a major annoyance.
