Ferrocerium Rod Torture Test – 4DB Elite Ferro Rods

Ferrocerium Rod Torture Test – 4DB Elite Ferro Rods

We put our 4DB Elite Ferro Rod to the test with a series of grueling torture tests. This 7.79″x1/2″ Ferro Rod is exclusive to 4DB and can be purchased on our website link above. We put it through the testing to not only showcase it’s durability but also prove it is a piece of gear that can stand up to the harshness of nature. If you drop it, or your bag is dropped it will survive and continue to perform for you. If you drop it in your camp fire you will still have the time to find it and save it. These tough characteristics are crucial for any survival gear but for your fire starter they are paramount! Your fire starter is one of the main components of your gear and could save your life. Our unique testing proves our 4DB Ferro rods are not only efficient and great quality but they are also tough and rugged.
We throw it down the trail, throw it off a hill onto the rocks, drop it several times, put it through our conibear 110 and 220 traps to see if it would break and still it didn’t break! We then smacked it with a hammer and it did break after the 3rd hit. We finally put a torch to it and melted it to simulate a fall into a camp fire. It did melt after about 3-5 minutes. But you could retrieve it if you did actually drop it into the fire. After melting you can see the high amount of sparks that our ferro rods create. They are very much elite.
We tested our Elite Ferro Rod but our 5″x1/2″ Huge Ferro rods, linked below, are also of the same quality.
