    Default Best 500g Cake of 2011

    Climber used to do these, I miss them and they are useful to a lot of people so here goes.

    In your opinion what was the best 500g Cake of 2011, and why. It can be a 5 yr old favorite as long as it's still available.

    For unique effects, I really liked Black Hole Sun from Big's this year. I'll have to go through some other videos for different effects. It is hard to pick just one.

    Blond Joke was my favorite. I was able to buy them 6/1 for 80 dollars & sell them for 40 dollars each.

    I'm assuming he means 2011. My personal favorite was Dom's rewraps at Bigs..Massive Strobe. New idea, great execution, good strong 3 shot ending.

    Honorable mention to Winda's Need for Noise. Very nice zipper crackle cake.

    My favorite was Mammoth crackle. Everybody really liked that cake who seen me shoot it. It has a nice chrys leading into a peony crackle break, almost like a p-nut shell. Another thing about this cake is that it has a clean very big break for its size.

    +1 on Massive American. Only had one, I picked up in a trade. After shooting it, I wish I had a case or two.

    Best bang for the buck for me - Braggin Rights (Dom) - aka Worlds Greatest Firework (Alamo). 9 HUGE shots....and very affordable.

    Came To Live (Cannon) - best thing to come out of Cannon in a long time - this year is first time I have seen it, so believe its rather new item.

    Looking forward to 2012 Winda products.....demo videos are sick !!
