Well I couldn't resist buying a few more items so I purchased the Showstopper and Devil's Barrage pack. I'll post unboxing videos on my YouTube channel over the next week or two but until then here's a look at the barrage pack. Interestingly it has a higher NEC than Primed's Full House, has one extra firework, a fanned cake and the largest firework has a larger explosive content than Primed's 'Casino' finale.

For that money you can't go wrong, you can imagine how happy a regular family would be with a huge box like that for under £70 :)

They probably still making a profit on everything they sell, those RRP are a joke, just cheapens the brand they don't need to do it.

Latif's may not be making much money at these prices however they certainly won't be losing money either. I completely agree about the RRP's, Unfortunately this practice seems all too common amongst the less expensive brands.

Probably a loss leader, as that's around 20% RRP so enticing people to come and spend at the store. I've seen some trade process for Emperor fireworks and what they advertise the price and trade is around 30-35% of the mark up so guessing they are not loosing too much money on the product hoping to gain profit on other sales when people pick up the offer.... Also to bear in mind that the inflated RRP on this product is £199 with realistic sale of around £80-£100, so makes sense that they are probably selling at trade price and not at a loss.

Seen mentioned elsewhere by Vivid Pyrotechnics that they share the same manufacturer as Hallmark, so the quality will be on par with them. That being said, I haven't been impressed at all by Hallmark selection boxes, so I don't think the Showstopper or Terminator boxes will be that great but I reckon all there cakes etc will be top notch!

Just had a look at their website there are some awesome deals on there, I fancy placing an order but will have to wait until all their stock has come in as many items are showing as out of stock. The war hawks are buy one get 2 free :)

This is going to make the industry very interesting indeed to watch. If latifs keep their prices as they are as well as offer home delivery then that is some competition :cool: however I worry that prices will now begin to rise over the coming months...
