Primus Gravity II MF
Price Paid: 111$
The Gravity MF was a great stove for two main reasons:
1. Works on almost any fuel
2. A very low profile, excellent stability and its very easy to hide from wind.
In the older version the annoying procedure you had to go through in order to change jets is gone! Now all you have to do is unscrew a ring and the jet is out!
Now it takes around 30 seconds tops to replace a jet. The plate under the burner was left out and the burner is now improved with the gas coming from under the burner and not from the side. Which gives a nice and even flame.
The priming procedure is a little bit different, in this version you ignite the priming pad in the priming tray which sits under the burner.
I have used the new and old version firsthand, the new version is better in every aspect.
Price Paid: $125
This is one of the best stoves I have ever used. I originally had the first Gravity MF but was frustrated with some of its quirks. Primus took the Gravity MF 2 to a whole new level with a redesign that kept the good and eliminated the frustrations.
Pros: lightweight, stable, fast boil time, efficient fuel usage, uses all types of gas (hence the MF denotation), full flame control (down to a simmer), reliable, easy to use
Cons: not really any...just with the pump. If you use the smallest MSR fuel bottle the pump will touch the bottom of the bottle.
