    Default Another BIG(s) stash

    Alright it's not that big, but it is from Big's.

    Some of it is wholesale (the 16,000 firecrackers, The Big Brown Box, and the Tsing Tao, Chronic, Critical Mass box). Most of it was BOGO retail via Big's, and some of it was from my local store.

    **********

    Note:
    I only have 140' of "Quick Fuse" (7 packs of 20 ft.)
    I have 1 pack of "Cannon Fuse"
    -However, I am going to Phantom (Key Largo, FL) to pick up many more packs of "Safety Fuse"

    Constructive Criticism:
    I'm open to any suggestions regarding Intro/Finale arrangements.
    I understand it is only a suggestion (my creativity will do the rest).

    Questions:
    1.) How many plywood boards would you think I might need for all this gear if I would like to do a symmetrical "3 shooting sites" show?

    2.) Do I have enough Quick Fuse for this size of a show?
    3.) Fusing is an art in itself - I plan on incorporating "duct tape / tie wraps, 45 degree angled cut intersections. Any more suggestions on fusing?

    Thank you guys in advance -- I learn so much from just reading and watching vidz. Wish me luck!

    Also, I will be posting a Video after the show!! Thanks again.

    1)You should Edit your post so that you do not take over someone elses thread!
    2)you should create your own thread in the SHOW TIPS AND TECHNIQUES section where people can help you.
    3)Maybe compliment the OP on what he/she purchased this year.....

    I'm planning on not unrolling it. Hopefully that works out with the stand up type.

    I don't think I would recommend leaving the roll together when lighting. I tried that once with a 10,000 strip and lost 1/3 of it or more. Last year I unrolled the entire 10,000 count roll and connected fast visco to 6 different points. That was friggin' sweet!

    Good luck and very nice stash!
