    I voted Cosmic too... just seem to remember it being louder. But those were my Stella days too, so everything is a blur ;)

  9. Don't know what people are on, but Cosmic Mega's are definately not louder than Proton Bombs, and I'm the world's biggest Cosmic fan boy and fired both in recent times. Proton Bombs are a proper Titanium Salute.

  10. Having fired both recently, I vote Mega Air Bomb are definitely louder. Id say youve fired duds to believe otherwise.

    Thinking about this, we are overlooking quality of sound by focusing on volume. To me the Proton Bomb had a harder/sharper report where as the Mega was a bit bassier. It had a deeper boom. Both could easily be within the same decibel range but both had their own sound signature. Personally I preferred the Mega to the Proton purely because it was a deeper. more menacing boom. Protons always seemed a bit harder hitting with a much sharper sound. So there. I haven't chosen on loudness. Just preference to tonality and feel. Plus, Mega also had a nice coloured comet too.

    I agree with everything you say there about the different types of sound, they differ noticeably. However, in regards to basing your vote on that aspect, the poll is focused purely on volume hence the question being "which is louder" as that's what we're trying to establish. If you feel the Mega is louder though, then fair play.

    Is that your video @Pyro Ed ?

    @pyro_man - There's another Proton video on your channel which I think does it more justice than that one ... seems to pick up the echo more. Saying that though, no video in the world could ever give us an accurate reflection of either of these two beasts!

    Yep. An original from back in the day. Amazing echo! Glad Facebook didn't exist then...
