Thread: First wholesale stash, Patriotic

    Default First wholesale stash, Patriotic

    Here is my first wholesale purchase from Patriotic and a little from Phantom, used to buy everything from there. Going to be used for a 13 minute show on the 4th. Enjoy, I know I will!!

    With that much, you can do more then 13 Mins., maybe 15.

    welcome. you've certainly opened up a can of worms going wholesale. you're heading down a dark path of case counts, timing, fusing and other time consuming things.... but meanwhile, you'll have a great time doing it

    looks to be about a 50/50 mix (retail & wholesale)

    All that for 13 min. show, you're gonna be wasting a lot of good product. You could easily get 13 min. out 1/4 of that stash. Nice stash by the way.

    Not a big fan of shells, huh?

    Spent $1,100 at Patriotic and $390 at Phantom last week. Used there coupons, not a bad deal. Got like 24 pieces from them.
    As far as shells, I have yet to make any racks, but I am only shooting like 20 or so - SNMs (not pictured) and the Wolf Pack Double Breaks. I am doing the whole show myself, hand lighting. I trusted two guys to help me last year and they drank too much and screwed up a couple of times.
    Everyone is probably right, I have too much for 13 minutes, but I can always used the leftovers at other parties.
    Starting the boards in couple of weeks.
    I made the music myself, 4 songs "spliced together" using a free program I think called Audacity. Neat program. Can we post songs on this forum?
    ACDC - Thunderstruck (partial) case of pearls & air defense, fountains on ladders and cremoras for start of song
    Elton John - Rocketman (partial) 4 Waterfalls for start
    Kevn Rudolf - Let it Rock (partial) highlighting Gold Dust and Z cakes
    Motley Crue - Kick Start My Heart (entrire song and extended the ending for the finale) Lots of sky pule for this one. And some display boards made with Xmas lights with "Whoa" & "Yeah" lighting up at appropriate times. Ending with 2 to 4 perfectly timed Scattershots. This hobby is truly an addiction and wife, kids & friends think I am nuts. But I am going to knock there socks off this 4th!

    Agreed, unless your "shoot site" is extremely wide.
    If you have a really wide site, where you'll be doing very wide "fronts" of items, You can do that much in 13 minutes. If your shoot site is not wide, and you put all of that up in 13 minutes, it's going to look like a 13 minute sky puke. But "to each his own".

    I love the labels on the AFW stuff. Depth Charge must be a good cake, that one is seen a lot here on showcase.

    That's exactly what they are. Beautiful effect, too.
    You also would probably like the "Crackling Willow" tube (I think that's the name), even though it looks more like a "mum" than a "willow".

    You have alot of good product. Using just half of what you have would make for a very solid 20 minute show.

    Impressive.

    I say go to 20 minutes with one heck of a finale'.
    I also recommend investing in an e-fire system with remote control.

    That way you can enjoy the show as well while pushing the buttons.

    just IMOP

    Thanks for sharing,

    I don't see any Noabs why not. You should have picked up your 1 shot tubes at phantom they are much better. But crazy cardinals is the best one at Patriotic. Nice stash though

    Alright, alright, I might add one more song and take it to 15-16 minutes. Taking it much longer might draw it out too long for the audience IMO.
    Next year for efire system.
    No NOAB's this year, I know. Should have gotten D-day or Badlands, next year for sure and Blast Radius.
    First year for the single tubes, will use 1-2 for a couple of songs and 3-4 for end of sky puke.
    I am not worried about the entire show looking like sky puke, Most going on at anytime will be 2 - 200 cakes, mostly angled and 1 500 cake. If planned properly......pure testosterone!!!!!
