How does it compare with Fastfire or just cotton balls and Vaseline?
Is TOPS the primary supplier for Uberfire? I almost got a couple tins a year ago but they didn't have the smaller 1oz (I think) in stock.
How do you get the burning tin out of the fire without spilling the contents if you want to reuse it?
When would you want one over the other? What separates them? Pluses or minuses to any of them?
1) Fastfire is good, but Überfire burns hotter and longer. Cottonballs and Vasoline are fine.....but if all of your fuel is wet....this stuff will keep going when cottonballs burn out.
2) Yes...TOPS is the only supplier, but I can always get in contact with the inventor to see about other ways to procure the smaller tins.
3) Best way is to wear gloves and then knock some of the Überfire out of the tin....it will keep going. Then, extinguish the tin for later use...just stick a new small cottonball with Vasoline in the tin as the ignitor fuel.
4) I like both Überfire and Fastfire a helluva lot.....Fastfire is way lighter and smaller, but Überfire will work with the most damp of wood. If I had to use just one thing and I didn't have any other fuel available....I would use a large tin of Überfire....it will burn for about 45 minutes all on its own.
