Default NEW Estes Pro Series 2 kits !!!!

This is my first YORF post (please be patient as I get the hang of this). I work for an online hobby store and last week I attended the NRHSA hobby show in Las Vegas. It is open only to the hobby industry (no public days). Estes was the only rocketry company in attendance. Here are pics and info for their new PRO SERIES II rockets and accessories:

No printed information on pricing yet, probably in about a month. Estes said these items would be available sometime in October.

Oh my.

Gasp.

Estes. Composite. Rocket. Motors.

Breathe.

There.

I wrote it.

Wow.

I am stunned... in a great way.

I have not been this excited about new rocketry products in a while.

I'm almost giddy.

Turbofireball, you can keep posting since for a rookie you hit a "no doubter" out of the park!

Yeah, they look like too much for B6-4 Field.

Interesting......

It does look kinda strange to see the name 'Estes' and the letter 'G' on a motor casing label......

Are these being manufactured in Penrose, or (maybe as Bob was possibly 'suggesting') are these manufactured by Aerotech for Estes?
