I voted for the Sky Hook, but the Avenger almost won out. I was given a box of rockets by a friend when his family was moving. I was 6 (50 years ago). In that box were a few catalogues, a launch set, wires, tons of engines, a Sprite, and a Sky Hook. I launched those as much as allowance would allow. I became 'hooked.'
Ever since, I have had a soft spot for these, especially the Sky Hook
I should get the SLS version...

The Avenger was my first stager. At age around 9 or 10, I was a decent builder (I thought ), but I remember having issues getting the fins to match up!
Fun memories.
