As we move into 2022, we would like to thank you for another successful year in 2021. As we begin to formulate a strategy for the upcoming season, we are still facing many challenges due to the ongoing pandemic. The biggest challenge, and the driving force behind the price increases across the consumer fireworks industry, is the shipping industry. Shipping costs have continued to rise and show no signs of letting up. In addition to the annual shutdowns for Chinese New Year, production is also being affected by the upcoming Olympic games in Beijing. Factories have been ordered to cease production during the duration of the games. Production and shipping is currently scheduled to resume at the end of February. We will continue to work with our vendors, factories and freight companies to confirm production and shipping schedules.

The good news is we have been steadily receiving shipments since August. We currently stock a wide variety of products from all our vendors, which include AFW, Shogun, Hopkee, Pyro Planet and DisplayFireworks1. We also have a number of shipments currently on the water expected to arrive in the next month.

With our current inventory and what has already shipped, we are pleased to announce that we will continue to run our Buy 1 Get 1 Free and Buy 1 Get 2 Free promotions on retail sales. We are also in the process of finalizing our 2022 Price List and discount structures. A release date has not been set as we are still awaiting final production updates from our vendors.

All coupons and price lists can be found on our website ( We are anticipating another product shortage in 2022 due to domestic freight delays and limited bookings for fireworks containers. Pricing is also subject to change due to fluctuations in freight costs. We encourage you to buy early and save as all promotions and discounts may not be available as we move closer to the Fourth of July.

We would like to thank you for your patience and continued business as we navigate through these difficult times. Please continue to check our website for updates in the future. Please feel free to reach out by phone or email ([email protected]) with any questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you.

**All orders will be subject to review.
**We reserve the right to adjust or limit quantities based on availablility.
**All pricing, discounts and availability are subject to change based on the everchanging logistical issues and delays facing consumer fireworks and all US imports.
**All shipping orders must be paid in full before shipping.
**Online orders are subject to cancelation if not paid in full within 8 days of order submission.

New and Improved!
I saw that the cake had been reworked and so I took a chance on it. It was impressive! Really fast paced start and then even faster 2nd round. The breaks were quality and really well spaced across a wide sky. Loved the colors on the pearls and the tails. It will be back in my shows next year too.

Fun cake but...
People freak out when the cake goes crazy, it's a lot of fun. The timing of the steps feels a little jerky and uneven compared to other zippers.

Best stepper cake...period
Not much else to say. This was a showpiece in my finale and false finale this year. It starts out medium paced until about half way through and then it rips! I'm going to put 2 in opposite directions next year so the fans cross cross. Do be careful with this cake, however, because it usually will solder and catch fire after the show is shot. Be safe.

Great finale cake
Put two of these in my finale this year. Both were on same cue, a few feet apart, but I put the igniter clips at the end of one fuse, and the other against the other cake, gave the 2nd cake a slight delay. It was over the top awesome!! The only I will change next year is to use this as a layer effect with some racks or cakes going off above them. Excellent, I highly recommend this one!

This one kicks butt......
once the fast shots kick in, it really does sound like a machine gun, and the small bursts are exploding all around you. Did one separately and another with a two dozen cake finale board, had about sixty people cheering!

mini stepper? No, It's the High Stepper!
As, Jarrod said everyone needs to splurge even if its only once in there life time to try this cake. It goes off in less than 30 seconds I clocked mine in the past under 24 seconds. Nothing other than like a machine gun would describe the 10 shot to a second count produced by this very fast passed repeater. I've put this on my order more than once. However, If I think back I must have had two versions. I think my 1st version didn't have any slow part to it. Anyway I liked the slow to fast version better anyway. I've tried placing a 3" cake directly behind it before and remarkably couldn't hear the booms from it till 22-24 seconds later. We even barely seen the big Red, White, and Blue breaks from Liberty Parade during that time. So, I advise if your going to shoot another repeater with this z cake I would place it further than 1 ft. behind it. You might even want to have it 20 ft. or more as long as the area is available. Then your viewing area needs to be at least 50 ft. away to see both repeaters. Otherwise, the smoke and 220 shots will be all you see trust me. Excellent cake hear but due to its price I find it hard for me to justify buying it and shooting it off myself.

Wake up your crowd.
This cake is beyond great. Just light it and listen to the crowd respond when it kicks into high gear about halfway thru.

Do you like machine guns?
Sounds just like machine gun! My dad who is a Army veteran jumped out of his seat with excitement when we lit this one. He wanted to know if we had more and where they were! This one has the "WOW" factor everyone is looking for. A little expensive but when you light it you'll be glad you dropped your dime on this one! Everyone should try a high stepper at least once in their lifetime!
