I like the smaller pre-cut size myself and that is why I picked these up to take a look at.

Weight of an individual fuse : so lightweight that i couldn’t get my scale to even read one.

Company Claims :
“Baddest Bee Fire Fuses which provide users a weatherproof tinder that produces a strong, long-burning, breezeproof flame that is considerably larger, stronger, and longer burning than a flame produced by match or butane lighter.”
“Due to the low flash/ignition temperature of the materials and organic weatherproofing formula we use, our Baddest Bee Fire Fuses are extremely effective at igniting from sparks cast off flint striking tools in wet (and dry) conditions where forest floor tinders are too damp to ignite. Coupling this larger, longer burning flame with a bellowing tool gives users the opportunity to start a fire with wet fuels they wouldn’t normally be able to start.” - Epiphany Outdoors Site
“Baddest Bee Fire Fuses provide users weatherproof tinder that produces a 3"-5" flame for up to 10 minutes which is considerably larger and longer than a flame produced by match or butane lighter.

There are a number of claims there but they are also vague at the same time.
Weatherproof? What does that mean exactly?
They go on to claim that these offer a breezeproof flame.
Considerably larger, stronger and longer burning than a flame put out by a match or lighter.
extremely effective at igniting from sparks cast off of flint striking tools
What classifies as a longer burning flame?
Compared to what? A match? A lighter? A lighter is going to burn for longer than this and it won’t even be close.
Up to 10 minute burn time? (KnifeCenter information)
Small form factor
Very low weight
Good internal protection and storage thanks to the container
Easy to open up the fibers and ignite
The web page for this company doesn’t provide a lot of information about the products they sell and some of the claims sound more like marketing talk than anything else. They don’t state easy to discern information about weight, size, container information nor specific details about the overall burning characteristics of their products.
The company seems to offer products that aren’t offered on their own web site. The smaller 1.75” fuses are sold at KnifeCenter.
Pricey for the amount of fire starters that you receive; there are other wax based fire starter out there that burn for longer, put off a larger flame and are substantially less expensive. Not even talking about making your own…
