    I picked up some old rockets today and I am having trouble identifying two of them. I am hoping some of you old timers will recognize them. I know I have seen them and one I even owned a while ago, but I cannot for the life of me remember what they are. This old age thing is gonna kill me...

    Considering the rest of the rockets they came with, they should date to the early 90"s, but they could fall anywhere from the late 80's to the middle of this past decade. The one with 6 fins is 2.6 diameter and has a LOC cone. In fact I thought it was a LOC kit but cannot find it. The other one is 4" diameter and has an Ace cone. The bottom is also a cut plastic cone but I do not know that brand. Both rockets have 29mm mounts.

    I appreciate any insight you may have to offer.
