Make Your Own Gear: The Z-Stand Pot Stand Revisited, Revised, and Relightened!

  • Using Backpacking Light's Titanium Alloy UltraRods to Build a Sturdy 0.15 oz (4.2 g) Z-Stand Pot Support for Alcohol and Solid Fuel Stoves...

Overview

If you're scratching your head and saying "huh?", wondering why you would ever want a set of BPL Ti UltraRods, then it may not be until you hold one in your hand that the light bulb will fire and you'll start thinking..."Ohhhhh....mmmmm....A HA!!"

On the other hand, there are some of you out there that might understand exactly why you'd want some of this material, and you can hardly contain yourself while the mail service does their thing to ship it to you.

Consider a few of the possibilities:

  • Ultralight cookpot bails
  • Ultralight alcohol stove pot stands. Try Jay Ham's Z-Stand with this material (great for cups and mugs)
  • Ultralight tent stakes (these are great for use as Bivy stakes, where four of these @ 4" long (with a hook) easily weigh less than a single 1/8" titanium skewer stake.

So, get our your wire cutters and let your imagination run wild!
