Found a rather large Roman candle, 140 shot, by Red Rhino called the Powerball at a local tent. Has anyone seen these before?

Yes...it is actually like a fountain and the "shots" are small. It is nothing more than a large fountain and not a very good one at that.
There are better fountains and better roman candles...keep looking. Yiou can do better for the price.
Red Rhino used to make some very nice items but I have not heard how they are doing now. I had some of there cakes a couple years back and they were nice for the price. I like the large Black Cat roman candles for price/versus performance. they make a nice candle and the shots are consistent, the report is loud and the color is very nice.
If you see a large candle anyplace other than 1.3g shoots you can be assured it is nothing but a glorified fountain.

They were recently bought out by a guy named Steve (don't know his last name). They still have some GREAT cakes and rockets. Not the greatest labeling for retailers but some superb performers.

What??? Red Rhino has changed hands but not by a guy named Steve....I'm sure it will all come out in due time.
