On my last comment, we did have some great 1.4g rockets a few years ago, think they were called space jewels but i'm not sure.

Here is a couple of videos demonstrating the difference between 1.3 and 1.4g rockets (For people who haven't experienced 1.3g)

I had some of my display customers visited last year by trading standards who were checking if they had any 1.3g as there are quite severe restrictions on how long it can be stored for. With the new CE products and pyromeshed items they are 1.4g and hence not the same storage problem.

i think theres a certain unawareness so to speak with this someone who buys for their family not knowing about fireworks and just wanting to entertain his kids without knowing could get into so much Fudge Berries! because of this they have changed the rules etc so much yet they don't educate the rules into seasonal retailers to pass on (i.e oh you do know wyou have purchased 1,3g fireworks and can only store this amount for x days without a license) that way the average joe does know incase as stated TS pay them a visit

Bro, But that's down to people doing their research, For example, you not going to buy an expensive car if you're not able to drive it. you need to learn in able to obtain licence. When you purchase fireworks, you need to do at least some homework to what can be used and what your rights are for storing. (As i am not referring that we should begin to hold licences for consumer fireworks.)

I do feel they are very strict with the 1.3g restrictions. but i also see a point to it. Maybe we will see something very different when the CE products hit the shelves full time.

I do agree to an extent, but you can get some excellent pyromeshed 1.4g rockets, just don't want people to think they're rubbish just because they carry the 1.4g tag :)

Also hunting hawks carry a 5m safety distance, where as war hawks are 25m.

There could be some nice deals i'm betting. If any of these places have done some research on prices they would put them reasonable.

I hope so too, I had 4 packs last year.

I like them that much i'm thinking of ordering a case.

I can't wait for all the war hawks threads and discussions on certain sites soon haha, also I remember the highest someone was charging was £35 a pack!
