Nice stuff. The tube cutting guides are pretty slick and who doesn't love some upscale Hi Flier?

Estes has been busy, I'd say...and listening, too.

I like the idea of the tube cutting guides, but the Sky Twister is just another Cosmic Cobra.

I'm presuming from the look of them that the tube cutting guides must twist-tighten. What a great idea. Really looking forward to trying them.

Actually you push them together to tighten them.

Saw prototypes of the tube cutting guides and the adapters at NARCON. It's nice to see production hardware...that means they're getting close. Cool!
