[pct-l] gear question

The butane/propane canister stoves from MSR, Snow Peak and Primus weigh 3-4
ounces and work very well except for snow camping. Fuel costs are relatively
high but the stoves simmer very well and seem bulletproof. I have the Primus
Titanium stoves [3 ounces, the first out] while several friends have the
Snow Peak [much cheaper].

Has anyone tried the MSR Pocket Rocket stove? At <4oz. w/o fuel it is
awfully light. It's not that I actually need a new stove but was surprised
at this one when I stumbled across it. I also see that Snow Peak makes
some comparable weight stoves. Anyone have experience with any of these
