Consumer Fireworks Reviews – The Good, Bad and Ugly

Fireworks for Sale, we’ve all seen the signs. Blaring out saying come on in, we have just what you’re looking for. As we drive around and it gets to be summertime or close to the holiday’s like July 4th, fireworks tents start popping up everywhere. The signage along the roadway says Black Cat Fireworks Sold Here, you cannot miss that one. Black Cat is a known brand that has been around for years. Another sign comes to mind “Excalibur” with a picture of the sword which is hard to miss. Now that is a good one to expound on. An individual that does not know what “Excalibur” really is, would probably not put the two together. “World’s Number One Selling Artillery Shells”, it’s an aerial canister shell that is loaded one at a time in what is known as a shoot tube. One of the biggest Eye catchers out there today is the, “Buy One, Get One Free” signs. Is it really a buy one, get one free program? Or did they double the price to make you believe that you are getting something extra when you buy from them. Well we shopped that program and will fill you in on the details a little later on in this article. Other firework stores advertise up to 65% off, but what they didn’t tell you is, a large amount must be purchased. How many thousand of dollars must you spend to get that 65% off. Yes, these are all tricks of the trade, preying on those who only come out and shop for fireworks once or twice a year. Are there really good buys on fireworks? The answer is “YES”.

For those of you who would like to shop from the comfort of your home or office, where to buy fireworks online really is the cat’s meow. The best fireworks to buy for the true pyro enthusiast are the aerial devices. Starting with the canister or artillery shells. These shells are a “must have” for those who are looking for the biggest fireworks you can buy. Each shell has a different effect when it explodes in the air. Most good canister shell will travel up to 200 + feet in the air. That is about as high as a twenty story building. There are several great canister shells on the market today. Of course “Excalibur” clearly advertises they are the best shell on the market. There are several firework stores online that carry high quality canister shells, you can always buy them anytime of the year.

On our list are multiple shot aerial repeater cakes. These item are made with a series of tubes loaded with pyrotechnics components with different effects or multiple shots of the same effects. It’s kinda like a fireworks show in one package. You light one fuse, and let the show begin. Fireworks cakes come in various sizes. Most popular for consumer fireworks is the small but mighty, 200 Gram cake. These are the small fries in the aerial category of fireworks. They work great for the beginning of your fireworks display or when added into a finale. There are many to choose from on the market today. Some with flying fish, whistles, peonies, crackles and more.

The big boys in consumer fireworks would have to be the 500 Gram cakes. These fireworks make the show happen. The must haves at the end of your show. The big ones, are the two and 3 inch cakes. Most of them only have eight or nine shots in the cake, and they rock. These fireworks cakes are loaded with the maximum load allowed for consumers by law. When shopping fireworks stores online you will find many to choose from in this category, and the lowest prices are available online. Still a bit pricey, but for a successful display, it’s required.

In the maybe category you may want to place what is called, “tracer candles” at the beginning of your fireworks display. These are an awesome addition to any small show and the crowd seems to love them. Roman candles are only a maybe for most displays.

Last, but not least, are items like smoke effects, punks, colored sparklers, really not intended for a fireworks display, but a great way for the kids to enjoy the start of what is about to come when the “show begins”.
