Has anyone ever heard of this brand?
The phone number on their website (c 2004) seems to be the same as a menswear manufacture in Essex :blink:.
Yeah, been around for 5 years... Grandad, anyone!
Had a shop in Abridge & sold selection boxes in gun shops etc in that area.
:worms: about powder limits
ha ha yes, the 30kg retail item that was GrandDad, that was back in 2004, bloody hell time flies!
YES INDEED NEC! Had the pleasure of lighting one for Raj (Newsbox)at his first demo night at the Woodman...
not sure it was NEC, might have been gross weight?
Really 30Kg? It doesn't look big enough! Impressive, none the less. Was it any good?
This is a brand as mysterious as the red planet itself, thanks in part to > 10kg cat 3 items as mentioned above. Don't get me wrong, it was great watching a 30kg, 100 shot 30mm cake (Grandad) in action we just couldn't work out how they managed to import and classify cakes of this weight as cat 3.
Just googled it, got the sound but no clip (Raj & Pete's wicked laughter at the end)
There's UKFR video of these in the Newsbox feature:
Newsbox Fireworks Demo night with Flashpoint Fireworks finale
Though it looks like an older DivX codec so some of you may not be able to play it (note also, subscriber only content)
I didn't have any scales with me but thats what it said on the side of the box
That must have been Sept 2004, as that was the first time we was unleashed on the field.
How's the thumb nowadays Pete? :blush:
Interesting video (played back fine for me, "nice colours" ) and a firework guaranteed to piss off the neigbours, I think! It did go on..and on...and on...
Their stuff was really good, they gave us a number of big cakes, when Raj turned up couldn't believe the size of them 'Goliath' was excellent, I think the name 'Mother of all Airbombs' shows you where they were coming from
God I look younger in that picture and have soooo much hair lol
Thank God for that picture... now I know I was there!
What's the name of that disease where you forget things again.... :huh:
So does Stu
And I'm holding a pint of Guinness.
I had a pair of the Goliath fan cakes that meggsy mentioned, the video does not do them justice. Excellent cake, and nice and heavy.
30KG NEC would mean it contain 15 times as much Explosive Content as any other Cat 3 firework.
Was it 15 times better??
