/ jetboil v primus eta?
My mate looked into this recently and ended up buying a jetboil pan and an Eta burner as he thought it gave the best combination of the pluses of each system. Can't remember the details of why, but I'll see what I can find out. In use the system was fine, and though the top/bottom fit wasn't perfect it was OK.
Jetboil all day long, I was very excited when primus releases the solo, but it was short lived. It used to be near impossible to remove the pan from the burner.
I bought a aluminum sol as soon as it was released and it's brilliant except the sleeve is to flimsy. If weight is an issue, I would get the flash. Bought my old man one last year.
Last winter I saw a reactor being used an was very impressed but rather pricy!
Sorry - my mistake: he got a MSR Windpro and a Jetboil flux ring pan. Light and highly efficient, and the Windpro design is pretty CO safe as gas stoves go.
