Japanese round shells firework video

Being that July 4th is coming up fast, I figured I'd post up a video or two to get everyone fired up.

This one is special, it shows numerous different styles of large caliber Japanese ball shells. The Japs are known world wide for the high level of accuracy in thier round shells. These are not shells you will normally see at any of our local displays. These are high end, bigger $$$ specialty shells. By the looks of it, I would guess that nothing in this video is less than 10" diameter.

Speaking of Fireworks, Fox Lake has what I consider to be the best show in the area. I would suggest that anyone that likes fireworks, to get up there to check them out. If you can be on a boat while watching, all the better

I was born on the 4th, so fireworks are sorta in my blood, I definitely would like to make it down to the Fireworks put on prior to the Kentucky Derby, it is the largest fireworks display in the world.

Glad you guys liked it. Those are high class round shells..

Now to rep for the Italians.

Italians are credited for the basic design of the cylindrical shell. While Asia has developed and always worked on round shells, the Italians and other Europeans had different ideas.. cylindrical shells can fit more stuff inside for the same diameter shell, can achieve different patterns that round shells cannot - and most importantly, can easily be stacked on top of one another to make multiple break and multiple effect shells. Sometimes these multiple break shells get large, like sections of telephone poles even. This shape and ability to stack shells allows the Italians to be more artistic, and paint the sky in ways that round shells just cannot. It opens up thousands if not millions of different timing, color, noise and effect combinations that are limited only by the creativity and desire of the desiging pyrotechnician.

These are again, expensive and rarely seen in the US unless at special displays. This is a good video, but not a top quality example of what the Italians are capable of. They are extremely artistic and produce some beautiful shapes and designs, and do a great job of timing them in shows. This is only a little bit of what they do.

Enjoy.
