The Ultra series is perfect for ultralight backpacking and people who want an ultralight wood stove. This series comes in two models, 004 and 006. This refers to the thickness of the outer shell of the stove body, .004″ and .006″ respectively. Compared to the original regular Bushbuddy which has a outer shell thickness of .008″, these stoves are much thinner and are required to be stored inside a pot for longevity. The stove bottoms are .004″ for both Ultra models compared to the original with a .010″ stove bottom. Other than that, everything else remains the same including the pot support—all three models share the same one.
The thinner material of the Ultra series does not change the performance of the stove, the heat shield still works the same to prevent the ground from charring. However, because the thinner metal is more susceptible to accidents, it is imperative to store the stove wrapped inside a piece of linen and stowed inside a pot.
With care, the Ultra series stoves will last just as long as the regular model.
