I had one...gave it away. Heavy and loud as a jet plane. I got a Pocket Rocket and have loved it for years.

I purchased this item full price a few years back and don't regret it at all. I know that it is not the lightest option available but it is the greatest for flame control so I'm willing to make the trade off. I would like to say as a chef by profession, I tend to make food that is a bit fancier than most while backpacking and this stove is the reason I am able to make it happen. Highly recommend.

I've had a Dragonfly for years. It has been totally reliable. I rarely use the Dragonfly anymore as I usually use a lighter canister stove these days but, if you want a liquid fuel stove, I can highly recommend it.

Does this include the fuel bottle?
Jul 19, 2018
I don't work for Massdrop, nor for MSR. Fuel bottles have not been a part of any stove package I have purchased from MSR in the past. Also, based on the indicated retail price for this drop, it does not appear that Massdrop is figuring one into this package.

What is the difference between this and the MSR WhisperLite? Just the shape/size and dual valves?

I'd like to emphasis that the dragonfly can SIMMER! That's what the dual valve allows, better flame control. The whisperlite does a pretty poor job of it. So it really comes down to the type of cooking you want to do. You what to be able to simmer a lovely sauce on trail, then the dragonfly is the better choice. I personally don't find the dragonfly terribly loud. I've had canister stoves that were far louder!

Yeah, the Dragonfly does give finer flame control with the second valve. I have simmered with my WhisperLite too. But that isn't something that I find a lot of use for on a hiking trail. As to whether the Dragonfly is loud, well, there are plenty of reviews over the years that have agreed with my view pretty strongly on that point. Just do a little search. Here are links to a couple of video comparisons between these two models. (I am neither of these two reviewers.)

I've had this stove for over a decade. Only one I have ever had. Travelled all around the world with it and never had a problem. Still looks new. Takes just about any liquid fuel you can find. Mine came witu a little aluminum windscreen and a carrying pouch. Best stove ever.

I think I had to buy the bottle and a cap for it seperately. Comes with the brass whip..

I don’t believe so. Since this is only a liquid fuel stove. If you’d like the flexibility of using both liquid fuel and propane or iso butane. I would recommend the msr whisperlite universal!

Can I use another can of fuel (i.e. Coleman propane with Kovea adapter)?
Jul 18, 2018
You know, that's what I thought the first time I saw that stove promoted also. But the following is a direct quote from the Superfly's instruction sheet: "Fuel Canister SafetyThis stove uses a liquid pressurized gas (LPG) canister that is highly flammable and explosive. Use only MSR® premium blend canister fuel, 70 Butane/30 Propane or 80 IsoButane/20 Propane mix, certified to EN 417 (4 ounces/113 g or 8 ounces/227 g)." hmmm... Apparently the "any" they refer to is actually some European alternative to the Lindal valve that I'm not familiar with - not the screw on connection to the 1 lb. propane bottles we are used to in the U.S.

I think the European alternative would be the Campingaz, that came to America in the '90s, stayed for a while, and then stopped selling in the US due to costly shipping issues/regulations, leaving a lot of backpackers with a great stove but no fuel. I have a buddy who still has a small stash, and the stove is very efficient. It's still selling in Europe I believe.
