someone open the door to let this steam out really honestly though rrp should not effect people. if the firework does what its meant to do then you have your bargain.
Well, (in general terms, from any shop) , I'd say there are several things:
1. Outright rip offs. Stuff where the performance simply doesn't justify the asking price, and the item is being "sold" on over packaging, misleading artwork, etc etc. Avoid, full stop. No examples for legal reasons.
2. Good stuff, or very good stuff, but not cheap. A firework that performs well, with no silly over packaging, but at the asking price is of debatable value. Brothers Tivoli (at full RRP) for example.
3. Cheap and weak. Discounted brands that just perform poorly- a lot of supermarket items fit this category.
4. Cheap at half the price (to borrow a phrase). Stuff that is good value , and worth buying, when discounted from RRP. A lot of the Epic own brand stuff fits this, I'd say.
5. The real bargains. Stuff that performs well, and is decent enough value at the full RRP, and is being sold at a decent discount. Very hard to find these days. Past examples would include when Epic were doing the old Spec Tiger's Revenge for £50, or a brand such as Kimbolton at half price.
