I shoot the Estes rockets with my boy now but these look like a lot more fun.

One of the really cool things about having a kid is I get to do all the things my dad would never do with me.

Taking him on a Hells Gate jet boat this weekend.

lol, I did this with my godson too a number of years ago but these big rockets sure look like a lot more fun. Go Karts in another year or so and dirt bikes after that. We are going to have some great times. I think I am going to go to where some of these clubs are shooting off some of the big ones first. Doesn't seem like anyone here has done them.

you should fire one off in the back yard and see what happens first. Just to see if its worth the trouble.

Feel free to tape and share.

Big one's are like $100+ and I don't want to lose it. My boy had a cow when I lost the last one which was an 1,100 footer. I got 3 new ones to shoot this weekend. I won't send them up that high again though if there is any breeze at all. I put phone numbers on them now too.
