Has anyone tried the Comets & Whispers Rocket pack from Somerfield? 9.99 for 10 rockets and it is BOGOF. It is the Fireworks Factors Brand. I have always thought they were a bit pants before but if these are okay, 20 rockets for a tenner isn't bad.
Organisation is a wonderful trait in others

I had some rockets from Firework Factors a few years back, only some of the smaller ones (forget the name) and for the size they were quite impressive (nice bang and lots of stars) of course with all the new regs things might be different today but i think it would be worh checking them out 10 for 20 rockets isn't bad at all.
Currently firing for Skyburst - The Firework Co.

Picked up a Men Shun Symphony Selection Box from Epic as filler, anyone have experience with these or similar sized boxes from Men Shun?



i got a symphony box too....from all the posts about dressing up fireworks it seems this has what Men Shun has done too?

the cone fountains aren't cone fountains at all, and the box that the fireworks actually come in has more empty space then space taken up by the fireworks! ....... not all bad though, i think it's a good value box and the extra space is because of the length of the rocket sticks that they packed in with the rest.

still looking forward to setting them off :)

Well the Brothers Companion Box was fantastic, I posted the pictures of mine in this link...

All the fountains were excellent quality, the 15 shot cakes were nothing like the videos!

I just lit one as a filler and said 'we'll see how this one goes', and it was brilliant, massive bursts of stars and loud bangs from such small fireworks. :)

The roman candles were very good aswell, an excellent box IMO, one of the best we've ever had and well recomended.

Seems most of the local shop branded selection boxes have been disappointing (men shun, standard) from the various comments posted, so having such a good reputation, can anyone give a comment about the larger Kimbolton selections from personal experience? eg emerald or solitaire?
you whistle it, i'll hummer it
