Slow Match rejuvenation?

Post by Hoss93WW » Mon Apr 11, 2016 10:26 pm

I have a slow match that is several years old now. It still works, but is quite dry.
Is there a way to rejuvenate it, or do I need to just purchase a new one?

You didn't mention ii it was one of ours or not. If it is one from us, it should last pretty much indefinitely as long as it's stored dry. Extended moisture is really the only thing that will hurt them. Occasionally you might run into a spot on the match that didn't absorb as much solution as it should of and it won't burn as well. That can be remedied by just burning past it.
