You what's going on guys as Black Scout survival and today I got a pro review for you and this is the the ultimate survival technology strike force I know these have been around for a long time I've just never used one I was in a Walmart the other day picking up some boxes for orders and stuff like that and.
I just stopped by the camping section or whatever and picked I saw this and decided to pick one up rarely we're going to Walmart it's like a hectic place so anyhow I wanted to try this out I seen and I was like let's try it out but uh my initial impression was you know this thing is pretty doggone solid so let's just take a closer look at it.
So looking at this basis that contained fair CM rod and it's got this quarters that kind of keeps it tight you got a pretty thick Ferro rod there striker what I like about that is gross motor skills you know you're not trying to use a tiny striker on something you got gross motor skills and let's just go ahead and take some of the okay so we.
Got the coating off and definitely high magnesium content as you can see how it's lighting it on fire like that definitely showers sparks the one thing I notice is you got to hold it this way because if not you're hitting this bad boy right here and you can only strike up to here really and it's awkward do it like that so hold it this way but the.
Structure works pretty good it's kind of a shorter rod you know but it is contained you know and if you look at a good old favorite here it's kind of like a similar type design as far as having a contained Ferro rod but you have a longer striking surface there so and a larger handle so I think this one may be a little bit better at throwing sparks.
Yeah I'm doing what I said not to do I mean if there's very good sparks so it's definitely a you know good luck hull something goes on like 11 bucks or something like that so if you look in the back here too you have a a spot for tinder and we can put wet fire in there they didn't come with a wet fire but I had some and so if.
We knock a little bit of this off and it lit right up so the ability to carry a good fire tender is awesome I do like that aspect I wish that you know I guess the rod can't be very long because of this right here but for what it is I think it's a pretty decent piece of gear am I going to trade it for my god spark i'ma get enough but it definitely is a.
Pretty decent piece of gear it's made in China but most everything these days but it's a contained piece of kit you're not going to lose it because it's bright orange and I think sprit up things pretty good value considering you know I think this is this wise up being nice I think this might be 13 something like that but this one has a larger handle.
And you can kind of you could hold it like this with gloves on and stuff like that so you got a few more different things in a longer rod so this is going to still be my standby here but this is definitely a good option for you if you know you want to pick something up from Walmart this that's pretty good good piece of gear so anyhow I'll put the.
