Big and beefy with a tail cone too!
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, Estes have introduced an "XL" version of one of his great creations!
This modern up-scale has laser cut wood fins, water slide decals, and a plastic tail cone to reduce drag. The Astron Sprint XL is a sleek design and pretty straight forward building. Sure to be a collector's item!
