3D FireTacks have a slightly larger surface area, so for more straight lines of sight, they can be seen at greater distances when placd on the sides of trees, fence lines, etc. .  However, since they are a pyramid, if you look at them head on with the point toward you, there will be a 5 degree dead spot.  So, if you are marking sharp right or left turns, T-junctions, etc., 4D Cube FireTacks work better. 

4D has three flat surfaces so are super reflective from head on and from the sides.  They do have a slightly smaller surface area so they cannot be seen as far away as our 3D pyramid FireTacks.   Some people use a set of two 4D FireTacks to mark destination points or significant turns, etc for things, like a GeoCache, or a hunting stand, etc.   FireTacks are also used for night time scientific research, paint ball, crime scene investigation, fire investigation and much more.

HotDots aka GeoTacks are a flat tack meant for head on viewing.   They do have incredible directionality however, and can be seen up to 60 degrees right or left of center.

If you are looking to hide trails, any of our Stealth products are perfect.  Stealth Bright (brown) are virtually invisible during the daytime, but super bright at night.  UV Gold Stealth are nearly as stealthy for day time, and super bright at night.  The UV Gold can be seen with both Ultraviolet or Black light flashlights however.  Traditional Stealth Bright are dead under black light.  Our Blaze Stealth is more visible during day that our other stealth products, but is super bright under both white light and UV light.  Since UV light is ambient and not directional, we only make our UV Stealth in 3D.

For private property where you are not looking to hide trails, Blaze or FireFly are perfect.  Ice White is neutral, while Diamond Bright is grayish and a little less visible during the day, but super bright at night.

FireTacks are re-usable and last for many years.  Be sure to remove Stealth FireTacks at NIGHT by going to the end of your trail (take a friend) and remove them going back out.  They are very difficult to see in daytime.   We have had some of our FireTacks in our woodland test areas for ten years and they are still bright.  We do recommend you remove FireTacks from public land when you are finished with them.   FireTacks can be washed with a damp rag to clean them.   Dry thoroughlly and store in a dry place.  The reflective material on FireTacks is nearly impervious to weather elements like rain, snow, freezing and heat.  They can be left outdoors year round if so desired.   Return to
