Compared to a firesteel I like the Polystriker because a firesteel sheds sparks and the Polystriker is a "ferro" rod (ferrocerium) and it sheds tiny globs of burning metal. The difference is significant. Starting a fire with a firesteel isn't that hard, but doing so with a Polystriker ferro rod is easy, even when the tinder is less than ideal.

The only downside is that ferro rods need replacing more often than firesteel. A firesteel will give you about 12k strikes compared to about 1.5k from a ferro of similar size. Even though I use fewer strikes of the ferro than I would a firesteel, the firesteel still wins on longevity.

Overall, I'll still take a ferro rod over a firesteel any day -- 1,500 strikes is a lot of fires, and they are still pretty cheap to replace when needed.
