Flying Fish Fuse - Silver
Length: 45 Feet
Burn Rate: 1.8 sec/in
Diameter: 3/32" (2.5mm)
Flying Fish Fuse will actually fly through the air, without needing any form of lift or external propellant. Its "swimming" effect makes it look almost alive.
Flying fish cannon fuse, silver--uncoated, 3/32 inch (2.5mm) diameter, Chinese made. Flying Fish fuses are cut in short pieces, 1 to 1.5 inches long, and used inside fireworks. Burns at about 1.8 seconds per inch with a red colored flame. 45 foot roll.
When this fuse is used in an aerial shell, it "swims" through the air.
Here are some fun projects to make with flying fish fuse, Flying Fish Fuse Mines & Flying Fish Fuse Sparklers.
A Note About Fuse Burn Times
The burn rates and times given for different fireworks fuses are approximate. They will vary from one fuse batch to the next, and even within one roll of fuse. If burn time is critical for you, you should always test-burn and time a length of the fuse you are using, before you rely on it. We advise timing at least one foot of any fireworks fuse, where timing is important.
Another factor in fuse burn times is that the shorter the burn time per inch or foot, usually the more energetic the fuse will be. So, for flying fish fuses, for instance, a shorter burn time can mean that the fuse will "fly" more quickly through the air. But at the same time, the thicker the fuse, the heavier it will be in the air, and this will slow the "flying" effect some.
