    Hi all

    So we are again meeting up for something a bit different this time, we have gathered a selection of fireworks from the big supermarkets and will be putting them up against some packages that have been donated by the magnificent @Epic Fireworks.

    There will also be some lines from Imperial Lotus fired and reviewed.

    We will also be firing some old classics as well as a cat 3 display to close.

    Excellent dan. They do indeed look pony. This is a great idea and will finally show people the major rubbish the supermarkets peddle (give or take a good fountain)

    OMFG that Funke Yggdrasil is something else man!!! I want one! Lol
  5. Have u got other 60 packages etc from other supermarkets etc to see what diffrence is
  6. If you are comparing to a small selection box from Tesco it isn't a very good comparison. My local had a late delivery this year so ended up buying my fireworks from Lidl and they were very good. The cakes especially. The cakes were better value for money than what i could buy at the same price level at the local firework specialist. I'm talking about 2 in particular:

    Plasma attack - £6.67 I cant remember how much powder but its really solid.

    Beefeater - £39.99 Over 700g powder, amazing fanned firework. Would recommend this to anyone.

    Special mention. The visage box

    These aren't the best fireworks but the 2 shot tubes inside are very powerful it also has 3 multi shot cakes alongside some fountains with decent duration. Again you wont be finding better value than that inside any specialist shop.

    In order for this to be a fair test, you need fireworks from all the supermarkets at each price range fired against fireworks from a specialist at the same price point.
    This is something i would be intrigued to see as after the performance of the supermarket pyro this year the only reason i will be going back to a specialist will be for 1.3g rockets.

  15. The epic stuff will win hands down over cheap supermarket crap!, you have Whistle Pop Mix there, a fantastic little noise cake with lots of different effects.

    Agreed, I doubt any of the supermarket stuff will stand up well against even the weakest epic stuff but it'll be interesting to see how it compares between supermarkets.

  19. Please do prices as well, i feel that is a large factor in this. Its the main reason people buy from supermarkets

  20. This could be a project ! I think for a cheap selection box full of samey stuff they might be a little cheaper, but honestly-even thencheap cakes that supermarkets do, I think a good specialist might be able to match for quslity. and price.
