40 for $5 ?
Sounds really reasonable.

Thumbs up

I’d think they’d be a big seller at that price.

I think they will be also, especially seeing the ridiculous ripoff prices are on most composite igniters.
5 composite MPR/small HPR igniters couldn't have 50 cents in materials, yet they get $10 for em.

Now if there is some ridiculous shipping or hazmat charge sales even at 40 for $5 may stink.
I don't know how they could be hazmat without conductive slurry though.
Previously I have found ground up fireworks sparkler material mixed with nitrocellulose lacquer (Nitrate Dope) works well for that. Most clear nail polish is Nitrate Dope.

These should be shippable without hazmat, if you read they do not come with pyrotechnic material added.

Apogee also sells a similar MJG product as “starter chipboards”. They require no Hazmat.

They are also more expensive — 6 for $7.30, so these new ones are quite a bit cheaper. The Apogee ones are 36” long, these new ones are 8”, so better suited to smaller motors, even 24/29mm Estes BP motors. Ideal for clusters.

8" length leads are plenty long enough for through all "G" motors, and even some small/baby "H" motors.
