    I like the name on this one too. Short but sweet. You need to SNAP em up before they are all gone.

    I bought almost everything from SNAP last year. The only thing I didn't like was Caliber - world champions.

    Here's what I shot last year - http://www.pyrouniverse.com/forum/sh...with-cue-sheet
    For some reason the video was duplicating itself as I was watching it, but maybe it's just me I have no idea why it's doing that.
    And the #1 reason everyone should like fireworks....
    Who doesn't enjoy a good bang once in a while?

    Here are some cakes I have gotten from Snap fireworks. Some are Caliber.

    Beyond it All, 200g, 31 sec
    Crackling dragon tail to crackling bouquet with blue stars with quickened final of 10 simultaneous shots!

    Blazing Comets, 12 shot
    Big fat, tiger tail comets.

    Cherry Bomber, 10 shot. (Winda)
    Sea blue mines to red breaks/flash. Very nice.

    Fascinating Cake, 200g, 200 shot, 49 sec to 60 sec or longer, 12/1
    Mixture of red to blue comets, red to green comets, crackling comets, whistles. No breaks. Straight up. The color changing pearls are interesting, but you audience may not notice it. Think colored Saturn Missle battery on steriods. One by itself is boring. You want to fuse at least two or three of these together. I found the duration is inconsistant. I have seen as short as 49 seconds but also longer than a minute in the same case, which is another reason why you want to fuse them together.
    Update: The 2011 version was bad. The speed was almost twice as long. Some shots didn't go very high.

    Fireworks Fiesta, 200g, 96 shot, 54 sec,
    96 shots of multi-color flaming balls with small firecracker reports fanned out in the sky. Slow Z cake of green comets, red comets, crackle comets (alternates by rows). Small blue mine-like stars and small mine-like fire cracker reports added to some rows . Last rows speed up. Excellent timing. No breaks! The 2010 version was great. There are other cakes out there similar to this, but they can't compare to this.

    JamPacked (similar to Milestones), 200g, 32 sec, 12 shot.
    Crackling tail to red palm with time rain, crackling tail to green palm w/ time rain, crackling tail to purple palm w/ time rain, crackling tail to yellow w/ time rain.

    CF27, O Dark Hundred (similar to Crashing Rainbow), 200g, 25 shot, 47 sec, 12/1
    [Red tail to red palm, green tail to green palm, yellow tail to yellow palm, blue tail to blue palm]x5, 5 shot palm finale.

    Operation Kick Ass,200g, 25 shot, 27 sec, 12/1
    Alternating mixed red/blue stars and mixed purple/green stars with 5 shot finale.

    No Problem, 200g, 25, 12 sec, 12/1
    Blue bouquets to blue peony, silver chrysanthemum bouquets to silver palm; green palm, red palm and white crackling flower finale.

    Northern Lights, 200g, 16 shot, 22 sec
    Blue and green shots with some color.

    Not My Problem, 200g, 30 sec
    14 shots gold palm tree with white strobe pistil/green strobe pistil. Crackling willow finale.

    p5410, Ring! Ring!, 500g, 12 shot, 40 sec, 2/1
    Double rings, triple rings, sometimes crackle in center. 3 shot finale. It is amazing to see these kind of rings in a consumer cake.

    Space Rover (similar to Buck Fever), 25 shot, 33 sec.
    Silver tail to blue peony, silver coconut tree, silver tail to green coconut tree, silver tail to blue peony, two 5 shot finales.

    Spacious Skies, 200g, 16 shot, 30 sec, 12/1
    [Gold brocade with red stars, gold brocade with white stars, gold brocade with blue stars]x4, 4 shot finale gold brocade with red, white, blue stars. Seems to go higher than the average 200g cake.

    CF386, Storm Chaser, 200g, 25 shot, 12/1, 40 sec,
    5 blue mines topped with blue breaks, 5 silver mines topped with silver chrys. breaks, 5 green mines topped with green chrys. breaks,5 red mines topped with red chrys breaks, 5 crackle mines topped with crackle breaks. (Similar to Pyro Alert or Crazy Exciting)

    Survival of Fittest (Similar to City Crasher), 25 shot, 31 sec.
    Crackling tail to red peony with crackling stars, crackling tail to silver crown, Two 5 shots finales.

    I think he was looking for everyone's personal opinion on the brand.

    Some of the Caliber brand I would recommend... based on personal experience...200 gm Survival of the Fittest, Storm Chaser - 500 gm Bomb Shells, Go Crazy Folks! Go Crazy.

    Grand Brocade Crown by Full Blast and Exploding Concussion private label are also nice cakes. The Caliber brand has a nice price point.

    What was your opinion of this cake? How does it compare with Winda's "Strong Man" ?

    Its a nice cake as I remember the breaks spread out more than strong man. Do to cost of case and # of cakes per case the cost is almost the same so its basically a wash out in my opinion.

    Edit : I forgot to add while a little different I liked Back In Black better than both of them.

    I am not a fan of rockets, but last season a friend of mine wanted some rockets from Snap. I suggested he go with SkyRockers:

    Later after he shot them, this friend told me that he really liked those rockets.
