Second that, and I was fortunate enough to bump into Geoff and have a coffee whilst chatting about the good old days of standard rockets!!

The new showroom really is EPIC and worth a visit if your close and a day trip if your far away!

Well I received my catalogue today and I must say it's filled with some great fireworks and
some equally great deals.

Just one gripe though, why have Epic followed in the footsteps of so many other companies and
'insulted our intelligence' with some of these deals? Just two examples of many...

"Plus a free chinese lantern worth £4.99"

"A free sky thriller rocket worth £29.99"

Come on guys, all of us know Chinese Lanterns aren't £4.99 anywhere in the country and Sky Thriller
Rockets would never sell for £30 each. You're good enough without having to resort to this type of
advertising. These massively overblown RRP's really do get on my t*ts, I expect it from most firework
companies but not from somewhere like Epic.

Interesting points there. What an item is "worth" is always going to be subjective.

Thats why it's best to look beyond the advertised discounts (on any product, from any shop, but especially when dealing with own brands that are discounted.) Ask- "This item is being sold for £25 (for example) - is that worth it to me?" Ignore the "RRP £50" etc.

Generally speaking, Epics stuff is good value some of it is very good value- that's based on experience.

But to say " It has to be said that any firework is good at these prices " or "because it's half price, it MUST be good value" simply isn't a smart way to shop. Seems a lot of people (buying from many shops, most obviously supermarkets) don't realise this.


But yeah, full credit to Epic this year- videos are up, catalogues out etc- some stuff is catching my eye.

OK, interest in fireworks to be resumed in the spring. It usually is. ;)

Of all the new pyro, I'm liking SteamRoller the best :)

I had a customer saying something similar today.

I personally think its a shame that Epics own brand items appear to have inflated rrps just to fit in with "half price" marketing as I believe they have good products that dont need that ploy.

But if you try to find something similar on the market, it will not be far off their full RRP?

To be honest, a lot of Epic's RRPs are similar to the RRP's of other brands for comparable products.

Take for example their finale barrages. £125ish for a top of the range SIB is something of a typical RRP these days.

It's not the case that Epic are, for example, suggesting RRPs of £200 plus then halving them.


To be clear, I'm not suggesting that these RRP's are good (or bad) value, just that they don't appear to be overly inflated.

Or put another way- a lot of the stuff from Epics range is as good as stuff from other brands at the same RRP (although I wouldn't buy those brands at full RRP either.)

Iron Man, Mad Moth etc (for example) are certainly the equal of a lot of other brands products that sell for RRP £10 (or higher.)
