They work with any one

Thanks. Dang, now I'm interested in this. Just what I need, spend more money.

Be sure and read the whole thread, initially it seems they are talking about a "Hellfire" flame-out from a modified JetBoil SOL Ti, but as you read on, the failure happened on a NON MODIFIED stove. Roger Caffin is the resident stove-master on that forum (no trail dust on Hikin' Jim, either), both are way smarter than me, and his Roger's opinion bears notice. With that said, I've got one of these stoves as do many of you and have used it for awhile with no problems.

Not trying to start an internet war here, just thought some of you might like to read the thread at BPL,
No offense taken here. Roger is the most knowledgeable person that I know of when it comes to stoves. He is a physicist; I am not. If Roger says "physical chemistry does 'X'," then I'd take him at his word.

BPL pulled that thread on the JetBoil for whatever reason.

I've got a blog post up now on A problem with the titanium Jetboil? if anyone is interested. Note that this applies to the titanium version only.
