Picked up these today and like all my pyro i like to have a good look inside and out. They don't seem particularly well made and what concerns me even more is the fuse lengths. For anyone inexperienced these could even be considered as dangerous. What do you guys think?

the barrage one shouldn't be too bad, it may go on further inside, but the fountain is too short, unless you are usain bolt and can get away quick

I've already tested for slack on the barrage. There is none. The two shelf which make the barrel case are not tight together and can be moved apart very easy.

right, that sounds dangerous then, take them back and trade them, and if they are as bad as you say, i'd call trading standards, they may need to recall them

Barrage is just bordering the minimum fuse length, which I believe is timed at 7 seconds.

More importantly, how were the barrels? :p
