Estes Sprint XL 7224
As a tribute to the late great Estes model rocket designer, Mike Dorffler, this rocket is for him. He designed the Astron Sprint back in the day and as a way to honor his memory, we have introduced an "XL" version of one of his great creations!
A sleek design and pretty straight forward building. Sure to be a collector's item!
