Hi all,

Popped into a local shop this afternoon which is doing fireworks this year. I've attached photos, some a bit blurry unfortunately, of the range they have. I had to re-size all of the pictures so I can possibly provide the names and prices if they aren't obvious on the attached photos. Can anyone tell me if there are any quality pieces amongst this lot please?


Thanks for any help.

Few more photos.

Picture 1: Bright Star Proton Bomb could be very good just depends on the price and reg. Pre reg ones where real flash titanium salutes. Atom Bombs are also good twin burst candles :)

Cheers.

Couldn't see a price on the Proton Bombs. I saw on the stash pics thread that someone had the Atom Bombs, which I take to be a good sign. Is 10 bucks an ok price for a 2 pack? Guy in the shop said they don't over inflate prices and then offer bogof. Don't know if it was just a sales pitch. He did also say depending on total spent he could give me around 15% off.

If you get a pre reg one, you're in for a treat ;)
Looks pretty good. Seeing as I'm a bit of newbie (though this is my 3rd year organising a "display" for my mates) how can you tell if they are pre reg or not? Just the dating on the packaging?

The date will tell you if they are pre reg :) but i heard some things about bright star putting half old spec and half new spec out last year in the proton bomb range. Again this is potentially as i cant say for sure but a retailer local mentioned that they was putting half half in the cartons. That could have just been because he wanted to sell more Proton Bombs, unsure :)

Another shop on the other side of Vicky road, closer to the train station, today had some fireworks in. Didn't have a long time to look but I think the brand was Cosmic Astra or something like that?

Also, the missus said she saw an advert, near her work, for discount fireworks on Farmeloan Road in Rutherglen next to Reface Kitchens.


Anyone any ideas on either of these places?

Looks a good firework the tempest, not seen that before.
Will keep an eye out for that, thanks :)
