Thanks Poncho.  They might be best as a fire extender paired up with good matches or a lighter  :dunno:.  My mind went to fatwood more or less.

If the wind hadn't been a factor they would have lit themselves :salute: at least I will try again when the wind isn't blowing and see for myself :cheers: They are relatively cheap at about $15 for a box of 48 :o So they are priced right :D Not advertised to do anything with outdoor survival or camping is
probably why the prices aren't bad ;)

Once lit though, it burned very well :tu: I really haven't bought many other type firestarters so I can't comment how they stack up against others :cheers: I usually use paper or cardboard to start fires around home but a few of these thrown into a pack with some other matches a striker or a lighter would weigh nothing :like: Worth the purchase to me for sure though :tu:

Lots of interesting items in here. :like:
Standard matches were always enough for me. I was going to pick up a nice orange container with those nice stormproof matches, but I talked myself out of it. I may reconsider.

Even a full matchbox was overkill, so I split it into two slender halves. Nice and thin, and still plenty of matches. :cheers:

Great way to carry matches in a smaller package :tu: You really ought to try those Stormproof matches by UCO though (regular size or the Titans :like: ) :dd: The Zippo ones are good as well :cheers: It is a different experience than a regular match for sure :salute: :tu:

The weather is starting to cool here again :whistle: I have gotten a little money for my birthday and I bought some of the UCO waterproof matches :D no pics but I did try a couple and they work :D I also got one of the Zippo branded match safes and it even keeps the striker dry :like: I will have to get some pics but for not I thought I could light a match under this thread and get it going again ::) :rofl:

Have any new matches came out lately :think: I know it is a very small niche in the market but was hoping to find some new info on matches, match safes or anything match related :cheers:

I picked up some of these in the grocery store the other day:





Not bad at all. Not as great as the "strike anywhere" matches of yore, but they work nicely if 'struck' carefully on a rough surface.

I rubbed a little paraffin wax on the wooden sticks of a few (being careful not to get any wax on the white tips) and found that they burned a bit longer & hotter. Sort of a Redneck Hurricane match. Not waterproof, but could be a good addition to a match safe.

Good ole Diamond Strike Anywheres :cheers: I still have some of the red tipped Strike Anywhere ones that they use to sell along with the newer green tipped ones like you have pictured :salute: I like the idea of using wax to make them burn longer as well :tu: :like:

I'm thinking if you coated the entire match, they would be waterproof, but then you would need to remove the wax from the white tip before they would light.  Always a trade-off...

Hum... favourite matches.

I'd have to say New Zealand vs South Africa. Awlso, any rugby game with the all Blacks, South Africa or Australia.

 :cheers: :tu:
