    Quick Pink Visco

    Possibly the fastest Visco fuse I have ever seen! Very easy to light and burns very hot and fast!

    Great for fans of candles or quickly getting more than one firework lit at once, particularly ideal for mass rocket launches.

    Burn rate: 1ft/s
    Classification: 1.4g

    Okay so here's a question for ya - in QM there is strands of black match yes?

    On there own, a strand of black match burns slower than pink visco looking at your video's - so if you put strands of pink visco in a QM tube instead of the black match - would you end up with some sort of 'Super Match'?

    (You heard it here first lol)

    No mate, the composition in fast visco is a very fast burning mixture (something like 60% BP 40% Flash powder) its is still protected by the fuse braid, so would have no effect on the burn speed :)

    So is Black Match effectively Visco without a nice wound outer?

    No black match is cotton drawn through a slurry of blackpowder and binder, visco is finely granulated blackpowder entwined into the core of a braid :)

    All that dabbling paid off, really got to grips with the inner workings of pyro :)
     
  8. So blackmatch is inside out visco and vice versa?

    Kind of but no!

    Totally different :)

    Visco is finely granulated powder so its chunky not dusty, I think its aided with a metal powder too, its a really complicated procedure!

    Blackmatch is just string soaked in blackpowder slurry.
