Kimbolton used too, not sure about now. They used to do red blinkers if I recall that were cat 2.
Organisation is a wonderful trait in others

I've used both MLE and Kimbolton ones quite recently. Never saw any red ones though, would love to find some too.

Keep mannequins and watermelons away from fireworks..they always get hurt..

Thanks for suggestions, can't find any at Newsbox or Brighton though. Kimbolton ones seemed to be around a few years back but can't find any now.

Just found that Newsbox do have strobes in their collection only range. Might be an option at some point if I can't find them online, or anywhere nearer.

I love strobes, I think they are one of the best fireworks ever made, so simple a device but very crowd pleasing.

Malcolm, can you get them in green?

The shop I work at have the Kimbolton ones, i've seen them in Strobe, Red, Amber Crackling & Blue. I haven't seen Green yet but I think they would do the primary colors.

Thanks.

Do you know if Kimbolton still manufacture them? Just wondering as they don't mention them on their sites and they seem to be hard to get hold of (the strobe particularly). Can you still order new supplies, or do you just have some left?

We ordered a case last year and they were still in the trade list. Not sure about this year though,
