Got a Century distribution tree first about a year ago after reading some discussion about it. Seemed like a better design than the Coleman one. Didn't work OK, when connected to both a lantern and a stove, the lantern would dim to unusable. Could have been exacerbated by the cheap HF lantern I was using, but further testing showed it be apparently defective. Perhaps a bit of work on the coupling stems would have rectified this but I did not try. Now I got a better design one. Century has a 2 piece one that is much more practical to use (shorter package for transport and you can choose the length to use when in operation.) Testing showed it to work much better than the earlier one I got and similar to a recent Coleman as far as pressure goes. But I mostly like the fact that it is in 2 pieces and you therefore get a free "extension piece" at the same time.
