Ranger bands are cut up bands from inner tubes. We used to have several on our knife sheaths and various gear. Pretty much used to strap anything to anything. It's an easy way to securely strap items together.

Ok, got it!!! :D We can call them "Tactical Bands" :mrgreen: Ranger reminds me of the 20 year veteran "Ranger" that trained the food channel guy zimmerman to start a fire with a ferro rod and magnesium. The ranger had the most difficult time getting the fire started, I felt embarrased for him :o Even Rangers have bad days :|

I have a Mitchell 308 for ultralight fishing needs. 300 for the big stuff.

Yes, a flint and steel will light them. Tomorrow I'll do a short video of my small flint and steel lightem.

Buy the complete set here:

I recently had a guy from Germany ask if I could purchase a 1/2" diameter ferrocerium rod and send it to him. I can't remember the specific name brand. It's not available in Europe.

1/2" diameter, that is big enough to start the engines on the space shuttle launching rockets :o . Did you know that ferrocerium sparks are what's used to start the engines???? You've seen the engines start up a few times, ever notice the massive amount of sparks?????? You learned it right here on bplite :o :ugeek:
