Nice starter collection, but you're missing a whole bunch of stoves there. Still, a pretty good core to build on.
And every one of them is, and always will be, essential for . . . hmmmm.
Well, it is nice to have all of them — just in case

Geez Jay, and I thought that I had alot of stoves……May 2, 2009 at 10:12 am #1498523
No wood burning stoves for me- just to much collecting scraps after a long day of hiking and then to much (fiddle time) and then Dirty Hands– No way Jose!!May 2, 2009 at 11:30 am #1498531
You call that too much, Jay? LOL =pMay 2, 2009 at 5:28 pm #1498613

It may help if you focus on the fuel first, deciding on what fuel is most advantageous for the majority of your trips.
I got a simple small weekend or UL setup and I have a heavier setup good for anything including winter or a big meal with real food.
I also have a lot of alcohol stoves that piled up over the years and I cant seem to part with them, an old Antigravity gear side burner signed by Tinman, an old Brasslite stove thats just beautifully constructed ect.,
problem is as far as Im concerned the Caldera cone system makes all predecessors a bit obsolete- its just works in real world conditions so much better.May 2, 2009 at 6:04 pm #1498624

If you'd just move the pots out of the way you'd see that there's PLENTY of room for more stoves in the picture!!!
Focus looks fine, not a blurry stove in the lot!

i'll drink to that (and help make another stove, and another, and another). hehe.
i need to find something for winter. the iso is not so good and the white fuel is HEAVY.May 5, 2009 at 12:47 pm #1499230
I finally focused on clarity and chose two stoves out of my arsenal for the up-coming Backpacking season!!!
BPL FireLite 550 — 2.6 oz
Ti-Tripod pot stand -0.2 oz
Ti-Windscreen —0.2 oz
Bottom of Red Bull Can-0.1 oz
Total: 3.1 oz
This is a very small compact-easily used cook system that packs away great in my Golite Ion. The cook pot has little storage room for Esbit Tabs and miscellaneous gear. This cook system is excellent for a weekend adventure.
Ti-Tripod pot stand-0.2 oz
Bottom of Red Bull Can-0.1oz
Total: 1.6oz SUL!!
This is also a excellent cook system. I personally think this is my best option for one reason and that is the storage capability of the Heineken Can. There is extra room for Esbit tabs and (little things) such as GU'
S,fishing tackle, tea & coffee bags,ETC-ETC!! Oh did I mention that the cook system ways 1.6 OZ!!!!!!!! The Hienken Can System I feel is better for multi-day trips.

What? No Brasslite stove? No white gas? You won't have too many options until you get those.May 5, 2009 at 8:32 pm #1499307
Heineken Can —- 1.1 oz
Mini Bull Pot Stand-0.8 oz
Caldera Cone —1.0 oz
Bottom of Red Bull Can-0.1 0z
Total 3.0 ozMay 5, 2009 at 9:36 pm #1499318May 5, 2009 at 10:15 pm #1499323
Excellent display and choice Rand!!! What is the name of that cook system at Trail Designs. I need to have some style too. One more stove could not hurt me??

Why Jay….I believe you're referring to the "Caldera Keg – H" the exciting new stove system that is capturing the hearts of millions and taking the lightweight community by storm…even the most grizzled trail veterans feel their heart go pitty-pat when they gaze upon it…..

Thanks for the info Rand….
