    Sporting Implement Gallery

    Welcome to the Sporting Implement Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the rockets based upon things from the sports world. It might be a football, baseball bat, competition dart or even an tiddlywink. This is the place for it.

    (The dart survived that, though the narrow tube got a bit crimped and was repaired, and it is still in flyable condition.)
    Don't just stand there, get one up!

    Have you thought about doing a build thread. That is dynamite.

    If you really mean the Pop Fly (I think), then yes. IF you're really talking about the flying outhouse, then we need to set up a different gallery.

    A LOC IV (with LOC Fantom fins). It's not really a Sporting "Implement" but it does have a sports theme so maybe it belongs in this gallery?

    I suppose ping pong still qualifies as a sport. Here's my Ion Fighter.

    Thinking outside the box is normal for me. Went inside the box once and got claustrophobic.
    Can't never did!

    Not sure why this thread died. Here's my sport themed rockets.
    Scratch built Columbus Blue Jackets and a Leviathan turned into Brutus Buckeye.

    Well GEE! I didn't remember this thread either. I suppose I could post my 47" Magic Dart. Widest part of the airframe is a BT 60. Flies pretty decent.
