    4 x Golden Dreamtail followed by a single Candy Flies. A couple of seconds in on the bottom left you get a fleeting glimpse of me to show scale. These are very good comet cakes and produced a great effect, but it would cost a few bob to do the sequence.

    3 x Imperial Brocade. Superb bursts. Classy.

    4 x Brocade Parade followed by 3 x Snow Blizzard. A stunning sequence (again not cheap) but the camera does lie in this case - the actual is so much better.

    I was very impressed with the height and duration of the candles for the bore size and price. Snow Blizzard was simply too bright to capture - the only 'problem' with this one is it needs to be used creatively, either in multiples or over fountains. One on its own would not really do justice.

    Finale of 8 x Diamond Princess, 6 x Crazy Whistling Comets and half a Daytona.

    The timing went tits up when trying to deal with the Comets. Having never used them before I hadn't allowed for a nappy change half way through hand lighting 6 units within an inch of each other :eek: (I forgot to take quick match which would of saved me trying to fight off thousands of the little bastards whilst lighting the adjacent cakes). More spacing or quick match next time I use these Crazy things!

    Of course Diamond Princess was as good as ever.

    Love your use of firing the candles in a v and them crossing.
    Similar effect with the golden dreamtails.

    I will try that style on bfn

    Golden dreamtails is another underrated piece which I've had before. Think there may be blue and/or silver versions available too?

    Golden dreamtails with a blast off fired half way through is what I did and it worked extremely well:)
