    So on Saturday me and a couple of other met up in Hayes, London to test fire a few bits and bobs. We had a load of Kimbolton and Emperor and some old spec Mars and Sovereign. Only have a few videos as I ended up firing most of the pyro. for our finale we fused together a Sovereign Wizard 12 barrage pack to create a SIB of 264 shots, quick matched to fire in 30 seconds!.... Absolute Mayhem, vids don't do it justice. Anyways, the next few vids are what I managed to capture.

    Carpet Bomber - Mars (Old spec BS) Final volley of 12 salutes went off at the same time with one almighty bang. Possibly loudest thing I've heard.

    Outbreak x2 - Sovereign. Set off together, one started 10 seconds after the first and finished earlier! Nice but not as good as I'd expected.

    Wizard 12 - Sovereign (fused together). Finale for the night, all 12 cakes were quick matched together, was absolutely brilliant! Also uploaded different angle on another forum...probably has better quality video, but anyways. Enjoy.

    Update - It was the Proton Charge that fired too quickly.

    The wizard 12 is brilliant all together, tonnes of impact! Looks like you had a good evening :)

    We have another test firing planned for sometime in January. We'll be firing bigger 1.3g Emperor pieces and it looks likely that we'll quick match a Full House barrage pack, should be awesome! I've only fired Cash Play and Jackpot from the Full House Set, but the people I fire with say the Wizard 12 and Full House are pretty much equal with one not being better than the other.

    I'm gonna try to Live Stream the next meet up from my laptop, hopefully it will work!

    We also fired a Skycrafter Festival cake, which was pretty good. The colours in the falling leaves were really good...Shame I don't have the video for that one.

    Might need some more creative fusing. Isn't the wizard 12 pack all 25 shotters? The full house pack is mixed cakes. Will be more of a challenge, though sure your looking forward to it.

    The Wizard 12 is 8 x 25 shot 20mm bore and 4 x 16 shot 30mm bore, and yes I can't wait!
