User Review: Coleman Exponent Apex II
Price Paid: $64.95+tax
I have used this stove for about 9 years. It has never blown-out fuel. It needs no priming. It takes about 30 seconds for the feed tube to get hot. It heats foods as well as any other stove I've owned. I've used an XGR, an Optimus 8, a SVEA 123, and a Coleman butane/propane. None have been as easy to use and as clean. The Optimus (3 oz. heavier) was more stable. I've used it in the desert, in the UP of Michigan at -10F and at 13,000 feet. It performed flawlessly.
