    I was partial to the Double Nut Triple Ripple shells this year. Although I saw a bunch of reloadables shot last night by a bunch of pompous assholes that were great as well.

    That would be me I guess. I've learned long ago not to get my feathers ruffled on the internet by the opinions of others. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in what shells they like. Am I wrong for saying Zillionaires were the best reloadables that I shot? NO!!!!

    Do we need to in every post now write "In my opinion" because some people are sensitive new millennium guys?
    Stunt, you have every right to call me whatever as you have meet and seen me around more than once. Ill be the first to admit that im a a-hole.

    Not to be pedantic but isn't that what nope means? By saying nope you are saying that the statement was incorrect and then followed it with what you belive the correct response was. Basicly saying the posters opinion was incorrect and yours was ... you said you where right and he was wrong. It seemed quite dickish to me as well not knowing you from adam especially when the initial post ended with "Whats YOUR guys favorite of 2011?"

    Maybe we should say "with all do respect" because that gives you the right to say whatever you want right?

    It seemed so much easier years ago when there was only "festival balls"..... A thread like this at that time would have been met with a resounding consensus, "YES, FESTIVAL BALLS ROCK"!

    In all seriousness though, I will be looking out to your call, Strobes, on what is the best shells late spring. You have been spot on each time.
    If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    NOPE!


    I've bought a few cases based on Strobes suggestions and would do so again! Now if only we can get him down here.

    Oh hey Strobes, It's 10pm and I'm typing this from my back porch in a Tshirt and shorts

    Mr.Johnson, i would suggest for proper guidance on "festival balls and any other product" you attend HPA's upcoming annual meeting and join.
    One you join, youll achieve proper know it all status by actually seeing black box generic items and what not and be able to make the correct know it all purchase from enlightenment that will be bestowed upon you.

    I seem to remember a post in the GLASS thread where you were called out. Between that person and i thats two of us who think that maybe your the one whos pompous and arrogant.
    If there are only a handful of people on here who have a problem with me, I think I'm doing better than most. I don't like making waves on here, but sometimes (as a moderator) I have to. And sometimes (whether I'm posting as a moderator or not) those waves happen because a person will take something personally without looking into the message behind what I'm saying. I'm sorry that you and this "other member" (I know exactly who you're talking about) think I'm pompous and arrogant. If you knew me in person, you'd know I'm very far from it.

    This whole thing - blown way out of proportion.

    You know, you talk about waves and such, yet if anybody was to take me to task about my comment it should of been the one i quoted. Instead the white knight came in to save the day.
    Anyways, this back and forth with us is pointless.
    I meant no disrespect to the poster and i wont be changing my ways because i may offend somebody.

    Bummer then..I only have one kit. I guess I'll find out NYE.

    Okay, fair enough and I am up for the challenge of future enlightenment and know-it-all-ness. I have the HPA application at home and will complete and send in this week.

    I may or maynot (to soon to tell) be organizing a group buy in the spring with the guy that imports Dragon Slayer. Not exactly east coast but I can check with him to see if he sells to anyone out east.
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    just wondering what you guys think of 10,000 degree shells. have not even heard them mentoined on this thread. i have allways been very satisfied with them for a can shell. powerfull symetrical breaks. nice colors and effects. that said, are these zillionares and others mentioned really that much better so that i should forget about the 10k shells next year and get those instead? i thought the 10k were better than the kod's and the kod's were pretty nice. i also thought the boomer black box shells this year were not as kick ass as i had heard. opinions?

    Those are my second favorite can style shell for the exact same reasons you posted. When it comes to price point by the case, they are my favorite.
    Sounds like you have access to Hales, i suggest getting Area 51 shells as they are very similar to Zillionaires

    The Area 51 shells are pretty good, now they do not have mines, but I was shooting some at Winter Blast one year and a couple of people walked by and said Excals? I showed them the shells and they were very surprised that those breaks came from those shells.
