Hi, so, I'm Hikin' Jim. I saw this forum because people from it were visiting my blog (Adventures in Stoving). My blog is on backpacking type stoves (Whisperlites, Jetboils, etc.). I also write stove reviews for Seattle Backpackers Magazine.
I thought I'd introduce myself for those who haven't seen me on the No ISo-butane on air taxis thread and post a link to my Jetboil Sol review which follows:
The new Jetboil Sol
The new Jetboil Sol features a smaller, lighter pot in either all aluminum or in titanium with an aluminum heat exchanger. In my weighings, I found only about a 1oz difference between the two. Please see the table in my review for details. In addition to the smaller, lighter pot, both versions of the Sol feature this significantly lightened up burner with substantially improved piezoelectric ignition:
The new burner is good, but the regulator valve makes real cooking difficult. The adjustment is tricky to say the least in the lower end of the burner's range. Still, cooking can be done if one is willing to fiddle a bit.
For the review as well as all posts leading up to the review, see: The New Jetboil Sol
Hopefully, this is OK to post a link to my review. If people are not interested or there's a better way (or I shouldn't do it at all), I expect a mod or someone will tell me, and that's OK. Hopefully it's on topic and useful.
