    Uh oh…..the nose cone came off. The nose cone malfunction on the Custom ATW was most likely my fault. Granted the ATW does come with a pretty thin shock chord. Evidence indicates that the shock chord burned up during the ejection charge. But I only used one sheet of recovery wadding when the recommendation is three. However, others have had trouble with the shock chord burning up. But one thing is for sure, the ATW is priced right. And it does have unique nose cone and fin designs.
