Best Compounds

  1. I love the look of some of these compound cakes! What do you lovely lot like the look of? I struggled to narrow my favourite down to One so here is my top 5 in no particular order...

    Hallmark Showtime Finale
    (Great duration and Mix of effects from comets to horse tails to huge bursts)

    Firework King Run For Your Life
    (Awesome Rapid Fire loads of big strobe bursts great finale piece one tiny thing lets it down for me is it’s not fanned)

    Absolute Fireworks Game Changer
    (The most expensive on my list however Huge Bursts, great duration and super wide spread)

    Firework King Boom Booom
    (Great Value for money! Couldn’t find a better Compound for the money awesome duration and mix of effects)

    Zeus Legend
    Another great rapid fire finale piece two of these with a good distance between them would look stunning!)

  3. I've only used game changer and grounds for divorce and personally i thought gfd had a better impact although you can definitely tell that gc has bigger tubes.My gc stopped half way through so it would be hard to recommend it for reliability but it does cycle through nearly every effect you can think of and it does them all pretty well for the first half anyway.If it works properly i wouldn't say it was over priced.

  7. Just seen a video of Klasek Midnight Terror another stunning piece! Can’t get over it’s duration! I think I would change my list after seeing some of the others I have watched today! I think I have made my list a little too early lol ;)

    If a compound can go to 4kg by linking and gluing a few random cakes to a board then surely a standard 4 kg cake would be a safer/ more practical option?
    I would be more than happy to see compounds 'banned' and replaced as Peter indicates.

  14. Ah okay, thanks for the info. :p
     
  15. Heard they were looking into changing the max nec to 2kg and doing away with compounds, any truth in that?

    Think it used to be 2kg before the ce changes so that would be a positive change in my opinion.I know the likes of rp diamonds and sapphires were about 1300g, that just shows how much you could get with a 2kg limit.
     
  16. Whilst for pyro geeks this is great news, for the regular public, will this not mean, suddenly it will be very easy to breach storage limits, by just holding onto a few cakes they didn't fire?

    BS stock.....;)
     
  18. Right side down below. Klasek fireworks show 256 Was a nice cake, but in my opinion a little to slow (175 shots Signature Range compound) above in right corner was a beauty and more powerfull.

  20. it is 1.3 version hahaha , because in Netherlands it's illegal to have 1.3 fireworks ore F3 products
    Some sellers here put 1.4 stickers on 1.3 products for transport the goods.

    We are only able/allowed to have F1 and F2 fireworks.
