    All the Fliskits I've built (except the MicroMaxx models) used Estes tube sizes (as opposed to Centuri)....is that what you're asking?

    When Jim Flis got his first big shipment of body tubes, they were delivered by the Estes (no relation) trucking company. The driver was amazed at how little mass was in those big cartons.

    I never did ask who his supplier was.

    Most of the spiral tubes used in model rocketry were manufactured by Euclid Spiral. They have been merged into Paramount tube, or so I understand. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.;)
