Description
WG209000014002: BlastMatch Fire Starter, Orange
Ultimate Survival Technologies
 
If you spend time outdoors, you should have a fire starter. Why not carry the one packed by those most at risk of facing extreme conditions?

Designed for all-weather use, this revolutionary flint based fire starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle environments. The Ultimate Survival Technologies' BlastMatch™ was designed for Air Force fighter pilots at risk of being shot down in rugged terrain, or the mountain climber contending with challenging alpine weather. People like these need a fire starter that is operable with one hand in case of injury, won't surprise you by running out of fuel, and never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow. Why would you want anything less than the best?

The patented BlastMatch™ generates a stream of super heated sparks literally three times the heat of a standard match. You can easily light any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinder) that a match will ignite. Best of all, you can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in all weather conditions, and the BlastMatch™ will last up to a an amazing 4,000 STRIKES. You can't beat that!

If your BlastMatch™ becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is ready for use. In combination with Ultimate Survival Technologies' WetFire Tinder™ (sold separately), an all weather starting tinder, you can start a fire even in the driving rain.

At the heart of the BlastMatch™ is a custom bar of high performance flint material. Spring loaded for compactness, the flint bar also rotates 360 degrees to help prevent uneven wear. A carbide striker built into the striker button is set at the perfect angle for maximum sparking - making it easy for you to start a fire.

The BlastMatch™ is also perfectly safe. To prevent accidental ignition the unique design requires you to press the thumb button in order to engage the striker mechanism.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Use
Cons: None
BlastMatch is Good to Go
Working with some Scouts on fire making and saw that some were having trouble getting the ferro rods to spark enough to fire up the tinder bundles - they did not have enough grip & forearm strength, it seemed. Ordered a pair of these, and at the next session (in a light rain, no less) those Scouts had no trouble getting a tinder bundle lit when using the BlastMatch!! It was good to see their faces & increased confidence after this success! I made sure to get the orange - they have not been lost yet. If it is user-friendly enough for young Scouts, that is good enough to get my recommendation. The fact that young Scouts could make it work in a light rain on their first exposure to it - that gets my HEARTY recommendation!

UTS ultimate survival BlastMatch fire I have used Starter
I have used a BlastMatch for camping and back yard fires over 200 times in the last five years and it shows very little wear. I often show a full range of men, women, and children how to light a cotton ball and if you can build a fire with a match a cotton ball is easier and you when use a BlastMatch it's safer!
