"Great for kids!"
bigeckmanfamily
This rocket worked very well for my 4-H rocket kids. It was not too difficult and turned out really nice. It also launched very well with little damage.

"Bad instructions"
billyaday
I purchased 40 of these for my group of boys. I pulled one out to make sure I knew what I was doing so I could teach them. I was able to figure it out on my own but when I looked at the instructions it was down right confusing. When I passed them out to the boys and their counselors and Dads more questions came up. Also the instructions tell you to cut out a measure tool one page 1. When you cut it out you cut out half of the instructions. Other than bad instructions, I think this should be a good rocket.

 
"Wow! This thing goes!!"
Bryan L (Utah)
Great little rocket from Estes. This rocket really goes. We had 4 or 5 successful launches before getting brave with a C6-5 engine. With the lower engines, this rocket shot up true and straight and was easily recoverable. The power of the C6-5 engine caused the rocket to wobble, despite the included clay, and the rocket did not fly true and ended up on the other side of some houses. I never thought these houses were reachable, but nonetheless, never saw the rocket again. This rocket lives up to its name, and had no problem reaching some great altitudes. Another note, I was not crazy about the streamer recovery at first, but since this rocket is so light the streamer actually works fine. The assembly was quick, but painting takes some patience. I passed on the white/grey stripes on wings. All in all, I plan on grabbing another one of these! This rocket is too fun to not include in your arsenal. Next time, I will try the adapter and give it a go with some mini motors like the A10-3T

 
"Went big and lost it"

I loved the ease of building this rocket. The fins went on without a hitch, the rest assembled very nicely. I launched it on a B6 to start and recovered it, however went for the C6 and it was out of sight. Going to try a heavier nose cone weight this time and hope to not lose it. Whoever found it in Point Harbor, NC, have a blast!
