brunton flex?

Post by irrationalsolutions » Sat Aug 07, 2010 4:09 pm

im looking into changing the old cook set again. i just cant get anything i like without the extra weight problem. i have been thinking about trying the flex as my stove and building the set around that. does anyone have any experience with one or more importantly know where i can get one cheap?

You know me better than that. If it says Brunton, it comes at a high $$$$$$$. I go the poor man's alternative, which ever direction that may be. You already have several nice setups? Did we tell you the buckeye was hoping for some more shiney bling bling gifts! Christmas is just around the corner! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey..don't look at me..I got my Micron for $2... :lol: ..the other ones were about $5... :roll:

Most people around here go crazy for the jetboils..didn't you buy one? What's the matter with that?That's supposed to be better but if you go with the brunson..is there a worthwhile weight gain?..will you use it enough to make it worthwhile to buy one?
Wouldn't there be a better weight gain by buying the shiny rock for the wife and talking her into carrying the jetboil for you? ;)

(you do realize we are still yankin' your chain, right? ) ;)

Will microns simmer?..never tried mine..guess I should.I'll probably be packing gaz items(stoves,lanterns) for awhile..since I've got about 15 full cartridges/canisters now . I'll have to see what pots I have for fitting over those stoves..I think the gaz "traveler" already has a pot set.Pretty soon I'll have to hang my "Flammable!" sign out front with probably 25 cartridges for vintage stoves hanging around...Time to burn some of them.. :roll:
