    well i see that it burns just like string would if lit like that, according to what ive seen, nothing has changed about the string, how well does it burn downwards into a very confined hole only just big enough for the fuse to fit in?

    i really dont see how this could possibly work, at least not like a normal fuse if it wasnt using 10 year old sparklers that still contain chlorates.
    are you certain this works like a normaal fuse, that could burn through even tiny holes, that could burn even if wrapeed in tape?
    also please retake those pictures, quite frankly, your better off drawing your pictures, than using those ones, every things a blur

    it might but just to say match rockets really suck with fuses

     It doesn't go that far anyways so why do you need a fuse for it 

    Its not like its going to blow your face off : /

    It's more about aesthetics, really.  Everyone knows it's not an explosive until you add a fuse ;).


    Plus, if you live in Maine where it's windy (like me), lighting one of these is a total pain. Matches blow out too easily, lighters burn your fingers, and other more dangerous options will destroy the rocket completely. Don't ask.

    dude why waste materials when you can simply just put a sparkler straight in and besides sparklers can burn in low oxygen

    user

    i don't see how since the rod can be bent...

    though after you have a burning hot metal rod a pain to pick up (yes I'm too impatient to let it cool)

    yeah but what happend one time is i made a super powerful firecracker and it shot the rod out
