Primus Classic Trail vs BCB Crusader Cup

This is a very unscientific comparison of the Primus Classic Trail and the BCB Crusader Cup. My goal is not to see which is better. The 2 stoves are vastly different. The Crusader Cup is ideal for short hikes or overnight trips while the Primus is much better for long haul hikes.

 This is mainly me experimenting with different kinds of fuel in the Crusader Cup and doing a side by side against a traditional LPG stove set up. These are my two solo kits and I am basically just having fun.
