"really cool!"
Nakota1294
Easy build with balsa fins that are going to require some prep work to get ready for paint. Fast moving rocket that reaches altitudes that make it easy to lose sight of if your unable to track it to apogee. Two minor criticisms though, there are only two fin decals so one side of your rocket will look like the manufacturers photo while the other side will be a fairly plain looking white rocket, second criticism: it is a light rocket, that reaches some decent altitude, with a parachute recovery, as a result it spends a lot of time under canopy and can travel some impressive distance with mild breezes. I recommend enlarging the chute hole to make it harder for the trees to get this one.

"Easy / Fun!"
Johnbycker (Wichita, KS)
Yeah, it's a near basic model, but it's fun to create your own paint scheme (as I did). Good looking rocket. Easy to build. Will buy again!

 
"A Great Little Rocket"
RocketYoda (California)
This is a fantastic little rocket. Easy to build right out of the box. Since the fins are balsa, not plastic, it'll raise your skill level slightly if you decide to paint the rocket. The fins will take a little bit more effort to sand/prime/paint to get a smooth finish, but that's part of the fun. I followed the red/white color theme on the box and the Crossfire is a great looking rocket. Other color combos would work well too, so use your imagination! Of course, if you decide against any cosmetic work, that's OK too! Regardless, this baby flies fast and high. You'll certainly have lot's of fun with the Crossfire.

 
"Really Nice Rocket For Standard Motors and Needs a Few Improvements"
champfluff
This model rocket reminds me of a dart. I have the components for a scratch build Crossfire ISX Model Rocket and would recommend these improvements, Epoxy, no wood glue, laminate paper covers on the fins with CA adhesive, for lightweight strength and angle bevel the leading edge instead of rounding. Do not glue the plastic nozzle, in the airframe and only use it for display, because it will melt over time. Since the airframe is so short, add an ejection baffle, for a more reliable deployment, chute not melting. Replace the rubber shock cord with 80lbs. nylon braided fishing line and 1 foot of bungie cord. These improvements will allow you to use composite 18mm rocket motors, with possible transonic to supersonic flights and exceeding 1,150 feet of altitude, depending on your launch conditions. I will be upscaling and up powering the Crossfire ISX to 24mm and 29mm rocket motors in 2 models.
