    After many, many problems with the Leyden, I decided to replace it with the Cape Cod. I think it will be a great stove, couldn't be better so far! Lopi makes great products, it's a shame the Leyden was such a turd.;sick I tried it out because of the problems that were reported from the field, I thought it was mostly user error. I was wrong! I think the entire combustion system is undependable. The Cod is a beast!

    Of course it's legal.:rolleyes: I just had that there to protect the wall when the Leyden went nuclear, and I never moved it.

    This stove will burn very,very low. I can make it burn with no flame, and the cat keeps up fine. It's not as slow as my Blaze King was, but it's pretty good. And it has a great fire view and clean glass. That's something I missed while using the Blaze King.

    The Cape Cod looks like a gorgeous stove. WE might have gone that way if it had been out when we bought ours. Lopi is a great company

    No, the Leyden was though . This stove has secondary tubes as well as a huge cat above the baffle.

    Ok, thanks
    So, unlike the VC stoves.
    It surly looks like a nice stove! As I type this, I am sitting in shorts in a quite large family room, temp at 77f (outside temp -15f) and I feel like I am cheating on this 20 and some years old VC Encore!!!!

    Unlike the old VC stoves, but very much like the non cat "never burn" VC stoves.

    The Leyden was like the "neverburn" type, I understand! Been there done that! Sold my Vc Neverburn after four seasons of glowing backside!!!!

    Yeah! I am a persistent one. Don't like to loose! I did in the end!
    The "NEVERBURN" beat me. The old VC at stoves are much better animals!
