Black cat still do a few good cakes mainly the grand finale and colossus just a shame they have no new ones for this year


Yeah- for mixed effect SIBS they are decent enough, but probably more can be done for the same price with smaller fireworks.
OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

But surely the same can be said for any Single Ignition Barrage??

Yes, mostly I'd agree.

With those mentioned by name, they are decent enough, but didn't seem to have any "stand out" effects that sometimes can set a SIB apart from smaller fireworks.

So which SIBs would you say cannot be bettered with the use of individual cakes?

Awaken and Tiger's Revenge, but are they actually "SIBS" or just large fireworks?

At the time, too, some of the older Men Shun fanned SIBS (flash based) were impressive such as Independence Day. But again, are they "SIBS" or just large fan cakes?

Imperial Invasion and Moonlight Eruption were good ones, because they got a nice mix of both effects and timing.
