AFAIC yes they are crappy.... coating is sporadic at best, "striking anywhere" is hit and miss; Primarily miss.
I've also used nail polish to waterproof, but find I use wax more often. I take those round cotton applicator pads the ladies use Found in the beauty section they come is a ritz looking cracker roll.
I dip them in wax, allow them to dry on wax paper. I carry them in a empty Curad plastic bandaid box in my pack to provider an excellent source of tender ignitor.
