Hi guys,

Pardon me for butting in....just after some opinions and figured you're the best guys to get them from.

Can you suggest which supermarkets have the best value and quality rockets, please?

Cheers in advance!

Yes believe us we are the rocket people. lol but honestly I wouldn't even bother with supermarket rockets, If you can tell us where you are based and a budget i might be able to find a firework shop that might sell cheap rockets.,

Always better to get rockets from specialist firework shops or garden centres or discount shops as they are usually a lot better than supermarket stuff,if you do want supermarket rockets the best are the Cocktail of Rockets from Lidl,at £7.99 per pack,i've always liked these and the larger pack at Aldi isn't bad either,they actually sell two different packs at £9.99 and £19.99,if you can find 1.3 rockets get those as they are miles better and there are some bargains around at the moment!

I'm the type of person who would rather buy 100 small crappy rockets compared to 10 big ones, all the fun is lighting them and the take off part! And just buy 1 or 2 packs or war hawks/ air hawks.

If you want the quality 'bangs' I just usually buy shot tubes as I find them to have bigger explosions than some rockets (obviously nothing compared to war hawks etc)

Wow that's out of the way! If you don't mind me saying lol, Well nothing is showing on radar, Even google, isn't showing much choice.

All though (Clown Around) shop in Town Centre, Colwyn Bay may have some fireworks, but nothing showing on their website. It could be worth having a browse if it's not going to cause any missions for you. But I cannot say if they have cheap rockets, or if they sell any fireworks at all.

I see now that you're in a big pickle here, So if you have a Lidl near you, I would go for 2 packs of cocktail of rockets, I would try out the new items as well 1 x ocean of light, 1 x boxxer, 2 x fire fighter, and 2 x voodoo weco firework., I tend not to advise on TNT as I don't like them. But that's not saying you won't like them its down to your own choice.

I would also add the Ipanema Comet Battery for 7.99 but that's if you have enough if you choose that list I suggested.

i'd go for 3 packs of cocktail of rockets (8 pack). they're better than most supermarket rockets as they're part of the 3 for £20 deal so are cheap and 4 of the 8 rockets make a small bang rather than a tiny pop ;)
better quality than other supermarket rockets and a good price too in my opinion.
for supermarket cakes lidl is also pretty decent. i find that with Weco you get more bang for less.

My advice is just dont bother with supermarket rockets at all as they are all Fudge Berries!. Instead get some deep space shot tubes from asda should be cheaper and a lot more bang for your cash. Tnt imo are a poor brand but the deep space shot tubes are surprisingly decent for the price.

Or forget the rockets and shot tubes and go for some extra cakes from lidl voodoo xxl and boxxer are looking to be top fireworks at a good price.

Edit check to see if you have a JTF or Sima warehouse near you im guessing a JTF will probably be close by you can get some quality rockets from both of them going to be brightstar gear but brightstar do make some quality rockets :)

Anyone know anything about that brand - Magnum Series? That Lockstock place turns out to be a couple of minutes drive from me but never heard of that brand before. Videos online make me think the fireworks are too expensive for that sort of quality but I'm not an expert.

They look decent to me maby slightly overpriced but quality doesn't seem to be bad.

These look good providing the video is of the actual firework and not a stock video that is miles different like most of brightstars videos.
