Default Nose cone question

Can anyone tell me for certain if the PNC for the new Estes Sprint XL is the same one that was used on the Citation Patriot?

Thanks!

Thanks!

If you want a Citation Patriot nose cone, use one from a Red Max kit. However, the original Citation kits (both Red Max and Patriot) were injection molded. They later switched to blow molded, which is what is still available in the Red Max.
