    I know you're a pro @elmo but just in case, you do know these are a daylight firework? And to angle slightly towards your neighbour to minimise clear up? And not to get your hopes up too high? :D

    Hopefully better than last year's stock of their 3" mines. They were like wet farts.

    Very different to the 3" traditional mines. So them being better depends on what you're expecting / hoping for.

  6. They fight it out with the underwhelming "Fearsome Triclops" as the worst Kimbolton products ever made £ for £.

    They include a small qty but fairly lengthy batch of red and blue streamers with some aerial crackers in there, quite loud to be honest though.

    I remember that - it promised so much but failed to deliver:

    And while I was in the UKFR museum @elmo here's some pics and video of the said Party Mine in case you haven't fired it... those streamers might come in handy in view of the toilet roll shortage :D I've converted the old WMV video to an MP4 so hopefully will play for some people.
