Well, I would shoot mine skyward. How would you do it?
More seriously, I've bounced welding spatter of me tubes a few times with no ill effects. I wouldn't imagine flare sparks to be a problem.
Actually, I've just lied because on one occasion a big white hot gloop fell and lodged itself against a side rope and the tube. It melted deep into the rope but just left a wee black spot on the hypalon. I didn't even burn down to the fabric.
So there, smartie pants.
