The Nuclear Weapons from Paramount fireworks is one of our mainstay fireworks. This is a 50 shot 60 second cake with 0.5kg net explosive content. The magnificent 30mm bore size is the maximum allowed in the UK.
This item was reviewed in Front Magazine’s October 2010 issue where it was described as a big, multi-coloured crackly one. This is a fantastic all rounder and great way to add duration to your display without compromising on effect. 60 seconds of mixed green, orange, red and purple peonies fired with crackling clouds of gold in between and a mixed coloured finale makes this a colourful and noisy firework that will be popular with all the boys and the girls.

Introducing Paramount Fireworks! Firstly, a cool grey design on the label with a bullet hole effect means this is an easy enough one to spot! From £5 cakes to Massive SIBS, with a great deal in between (including some nifty rockets) this is a brand any proper enthusiast will want to try – if you haven’t already!
Here is an unoffical “top ten” – feel free to reply with your own.
At TEN….. The Echo Bomb rockets! Volume and stars from this no frills noise maker! at £15 for 5, its not going to break the bank, either! BANG!
At NINE…. Thunderking! You like noise, right? For well under £10, this little banger will do the job!
At EIGHT…. Ultimate Devastation! Many effects, a fast pace throughout and a lovely crackle ending on this big beauty!
At SEVEN…. Optimum! For a break from the mega-lod ones, try this cheerful little item – deep red bursts with a rat-a-tat crackle burst as well!
At SIX… Flip Mode! A popular three stage effect, running fans with delayed crackles and large bursts, whsitles and volume. A very popular item, and amazing that its still around at a price like this.
At FIVE! Sky Force! A proper “big rocket” at the sort of price that would have been a very nice bargain 6 or 7 years ago… excellent!
At FOUR! Block Buster! Mines, twinkles above, and proper loud bursts overhead. Big brash and beautiful (ish…)
At THREE! Fragma! The ever popular 19 shot hexagon, and this is as good as it gets at this price – massive bursts, lingering and crackling palms. Outstanding pyro!
At TWO! Magneto! The bigger brother in many ways of Fragma, with 36 of the best effects from this cake – stella performance, and rivals stuff that sells for at least twice the price!
At ONE! Whispering Palms! Professional quality, simple as. Size, duration, hang time on this are 5 stars all round. One of the few fireworks that carries a totally genuine “wow” factor, and one that needs no more introduction other than to say its fantastic!
A notable mention, of course, to the others from Paramount who didn’t make this list!
Flip Mode is a superb new addition to the Paramount Fireworks range for 2010. The brand that brough you such classics as Fragma and the irresistible Echo Bomb has introduced another instant classic to its repertoire.
Flip Mode is the very definition of a no-nonsense, fast paced, animal of a barrage and should definately be handled with extreme caution.
A reproduction of the incredible Air Boss by Brothers Pyrotechnics this is already guaranteed to be a good performer and a popular piece. We have worked very closely with Brothers Pyrotechnics to make sure that the same great quality, high-impact and value for money will be there for this one.
Heres the review:
This awesome new barrage from Paramount Fireworks lives up to its name beautifully. 38 large shots fired rapidly in fanned formation from left to right across the sky; simply breath-taking. Screaming comet tails with great crackles turn into whistling tails with timed golden rain and huge gold willow with crackling flowers.
All this in about 20 seconds makes this an absolutely crazy barrage and one that is definitely going to be a favourite of 2010.
