Kevlar Wicks vs Ceramic Wicks
Ceramic takes more fuel than Kevlar so flame is bigger and burnouts are bigger. And due to more fuel, burn time is also longer. Ceramic rope is more fragile than Kevlar. It’s not recommended to drop it too often. We also do not recommend using ceramic rope for fleshing and eating. It’s rough and scratchy and usually has higher temperatures.
Preparing ceramic wicks for first use: The important thing to remember with ceramic wicks is to burn once before spinning. Just soak with fuel and fire without spinning. After that ceramic wicks become strong and are ready for use.
Kevlar is a good choice for an all-around wick. It can take drops to the ground much easier than ceramic and is known to last longer than ceramic. Choose Kevlar if you have any concerns about dropping your props more than once in a while!
