One of my favourite inserts are hummers, their funny little zip and go getter like behaviour leaves me in awe.

Which makes me wonder, why dont they get used more often. Ive never seen them in a professional show.

Does anyone know why? Is it because theyre unpredictable?

I'd guess because most shows, unless you're in Italy or Malta, are all shooting ball shells and hummers are usually used as inserts in cylinder shells. Aside from that it might just be a cost thing. Much easier to roll huge batches of stars than it is to press up a bunch of hummers.
