    I wanted to compare the relative brightness of three recent fettles. Not much to choose between them in that department although the Radius 119 is significantly quieter than the other two. I think the Swedes must have used much bigger candles than everyone else since 300 Swedish candlepower is so much brighter than 300 British or American candlepower...

    Looking good. Considering the variation in pressure and jet wear, they are pretty close.

    The Radius is known for being a quiet lantern. About the only advantage I can find over the 1020. :)

    Beautiful !

    Radius 119 is a very silent lantern, only the Primus 981 comes close, if not surpasses the 119 in that department.

    @Tive: Fred, was it you that snatched the Radius 110 out from under my nose on Tradera on Sunday evening? It was a fair win, but what do you want with yet another one?:lol:

    Hi Phil !

    I guess so. i'm afraid, had no idea' that you were one of the bidders though :oops: anyways, i do not own a single Radius 110 with this special system, the one i have is a 106A, a lantern with at totally different burner system, i have been looking for one of these 500cp, 110's with the sideways going lever for years, and finally i got one.

    Sorry about the snatch / Fred
