Any one have any idea as to whether the white paper fast fuse is coming back.

Good question, I have been looking for it for the past four years and have not found a good source yet.  I did find some short lengths being sold by Pyro Direct some time ago but they look to be out of stock as well. 

 

I have yet to see it at PGI again and it seems that the pink visco has all but replaced it at the trade shows. I use it all the time for fusing my rocket headers to the rocket motor, I now just pull black match and use that in its place, it works just the same.

A little research on this and others forums shed a little light on this subject.  It seems that back a few years ago, there was a rule change for fuses on individual items and the paper fuse was largely replaced by the green 'canon' fuse. With that, the great three-strand, paper-wrapped fast fuse seems to have become extinct. While I imagine you can make a close facsimile at home, perhaps, you may wish to move on to another type of fuse.

Wow, I was unaware it had gone off the market. I have a big roll of it in the magazine, but I only use it as a source of black match.

I havent used much of the fast visco, how spark proof is it and do you need to put it in a leader pipe?

you can get 60' of paper fuse & 30' of mini crackling balls for $10 @ http://www.pyrocreat...inc/sdetail/535

 

the balls easily rub off the paper & can be dumped in your favorite creations

Not sure if this is the same fuse but might be worth looking into.

That's the stuff. There's a tutorial on some site for making paper fuse but I haven't found it again yet.
Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

That stuff looks nice. Have you tried the crackling balls yet? Are they similar to dragon eggs?

Pyrocreations has the crackling fuse but not the paper fast fuse.  There are a couple of sites that have it in 3 foot lengths but that doesnt work for what i need.  I primarily use it to fuse 3 inch shells and if you cut it in halve its just to short.  So your left with a shorter length that can only be used for smaller stuff.

I made a ton of quickmatch for 3” shells. It’s pretty simple to make. Then ya just attach 20 seconds or so of visco and yer all set.

Maybe attaching visco to what you can get... the half 3 footers is a solution as well eh.


I like smoke! On food or in the air equally well.
