@OregonStrong Thanks for starting this thread!! I'm researching inserts and have been thoroughly confused by what Travis Industries is doing. I especially don't understand which manufacturer (Lopi vs Fireplace Xtrordinair) makes which model - their websites are so contradictory I'm tempted to forgo them just to avoid the headache.
For example, does anyone know if the Large Flush Wood Hybrid-Fyre, the one that is listed as 78% efficient on the EPA website and would therefor qualify for the tax credit, is made by Lopi or Fireplace Xtrordinair? And I'm guessing it's no longer in production, based on OregonStrong's experience?
Honestly I think the body of the stove is the same, and Lopi and FX offer different faceplates? I noticed that in the brochure they say the body is the same and they list out the faceplates per company name. FX faceplates are more expensive.
Lopi makes a Large Flush Wood Hybrid-Fyre - I got the same one in Medium. And you're right - they are not currently in production. But, some dealers might still have some in stock from last year.
I got my Medium Flush Wood Hybrid-Fyre installed this week and it's burning right now - I'm still learning the best ways to use it, but overall I'm liking it a lot! My house is nice and warm but not overheated, and it looks good in my space.
