Modifying a MSR SuperFly
I noticed the MSR Superfly, which has a "latch on connector", instead of a screw on, fits standard screw on cartridges without having to screw them on. It almost fits a Powermax cartridge, except ...

Light My Fire Spork
I like the LMF Spork, but it's almost too flexible. I can agree with many if not most of the comments above, and have had one break. When you use it to stir something very hot, it gets soft and ...
