Cold burn my @ss!!
Can cause respritory inflammation
I will rate these as both a player and user of the product as well as from a refs point of view as the field I work at sells these to use during games.
As a player and one who uses these, they work very well. They have an easy to pull ignition wire, burn time is long, and smoke is thick. I have used them myself in large games and scenarios as well as seen them used by producers as props in their games.
Now, as a ref who sees some of the not so sharper tools use these, they are a potential hazzard.
THESE ARE NOT COLD BURNING!!!!!! Even the manufactuer will tell you this. No where on the box or product does it state this.
I have seen too many people, despite our warning talk and demo on how to use these, hold the ends when pulling the wire. Small, yet noticeable flames do shoot out the ends upon ignition. I have seen these flames leave blisters on players as well as ignite leaves and grass.
I have seen people try to pick these up and throw them back, despite us telling them not to. Guess what, they have burned their hands and have gotten blisters.
I have seen these thrown into small encloed areas and have seen people run out from these areas because it gets overwhelming to breathe in the area.
Do not try to hold them too long, throw them as soon as you pull the ignition wire.
Do not throw them on ground with dry vegetation, I have seen them catch the suurounding area on fire.
Do not throw them into small enclosed buildings, huts, etc... Would you want to be on the recieving end of an plume of smoke that is both hard to see in and harder to breathe in?
These do work very well, if handled and used responsibly.
If both game producers as well as players can use these in more open areas for masking large areas for broad movement then I would say these are a fairly safe product.
I cannot recommend that field owners sell them to the average walk on. Too many potentially dangerous variables.
