Why order cardboard shells from the USA?
Svenska Kemi also sells them, 24 3'' sets for 120 kronen(about 8 pounds) I think.

Yes, but ordering from SK can be very expensive if you live outside Sweden. There is a fairly high minimum order amount and the shipping is kind of expensive too. I for sure would be interested in reselling Gamon products in Europe but I'm a bit concerned wether there is enough demand to make it even a bit profitable.

RE: The debris. It isn't heavy, but can be sharp. Also, it won't 'flutter' down like paper debris.

Thanks for the info Adam. From that point of view, thinner casings like the Pyroplastics types + glass fibre strapping might well be an advantage.

Sasman :


If you want i can send you one of my 4 and 5 inch sets so you can have a play with them, i am thinking of buying more from them too. I like the paper ones they do.


Karl thanks for the offer..when you made an order how long did it take?..When i find the time i will email them for some samples including some of there paper hemis?. how did they take payment? bank transfer? credit card?...How much did shipping cost?

Jerronimo have you some video clips of your finshed shells using the Gammon plastic/paper shells?

Sasman:

They took about 1-2 weeks, i had problems with the logistics company, they never seemed to get the anything right and prices were all over the place. The ones i got were free, although i ended up paying a hugh 70 pounds to the logistics company. The package weighed 7.5kg. I know it would have been a bank transfer because i asked before i made an order. Top quality shells though, very pleased and if you get the lift cups it makes it look PRO!!!

If you have opportunity to place a wholesale sized order, I would like to purchase some of Gamon's plastic ball, round and rocket header shells ! You could make a penny or two just off me, and no doubt some others here as well. I've asked Skylighter twice now to consider buying some, but no reply yet.

Depending on minimum order ammounts, I will look into it.

What specific item numbers (ie product) were you wanting?

I took some samples from Gamon, and they are very nice as you'd expect. The delay cords are just that - red spanish time fuse pre-crossed at specific intervals for timing.
