Most all of the Big stuff is re-wrapped items from other importers. Such as the World Class items, Jakes imports them directly. That is why Bigs doesnt carry Excalibur shells. They have their own shell that is called Pro shells. Same factory makes them both. If you can send me a list of what you want and what you like I can see about getting you a GREAT price on the stuff. Most of the big name stores Big, Jakes, Sheltons, Phantom wont have any real hard hitting stuff. I say most some do have overloads on the shell but there are better small timer shops that will cater to the hard core guys. If thats your flavor you will need to pay a premium but the stuff is out there.

They are better build than bought but thats a whole differnet hobby!!!

First pic is 450 600 shot cakes we had to destroy sad day. Next are 24" shell in avatar being built.

The CPSC has some dumb ass rules. One is the entire devis needs to be supported by the fuse alone. No way is a 1/8" fabric fuse full of powder going to support a cake that is 2'X4' There are alot of small tubes but are all supported by wood. They were heavy, and awsome when you lite 20 at a time. This is a video of one of them.
