Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great spark. Fragile construction. Being a minimalist backpacker, I loved the Exotac firestarters size and weight. It took up very little space in my pack when stored away and produced a nice, hot spark when needed. My only issue with the firestarter was that the rod snapped off of it's handle with very little (accidental) effort on my part. I know that for "lightwieght" you sometimes have to sacrifice quality, but in my opinion, this firestarter could stand to be slightly more durable. I'm needing a replacement firestarter and will probably not spend the money to buy this same one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, lightweight Ferro Rod Just picked this up as a small, lightweight ferro rod. I keep it in my knife sheath. Tried it out this weekend in a few inches of snow in PA. Lit a tinder bundle of (mostly) dry grass and birch bark on one strike. The design is great. The striking steel nests into the handle of the rod, so it's super compact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, starts fires I bought this so I would have a backup to my matches for starting my gas stove. After working on my striking technique, it worked like a charm and I don't have to worry about it getting wet. It's quite exciting to see the sparks fly. The design is pretty nifty though - I don't have to worry about losing parts since it's all integrated. I am slightly concerned about it breaking if I toss it into the main compartment of my bag, but it does seem pretty sturdy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointment I bought this in the store thinking it would be a good alternative to matches or a lighter to ignite my stove. It would not do that and it was not easy to produce a spark with the stiker. I honestly had an easier time with that with old-fashioned flint and steel when doing living history programs in college.
