    Giant Leap Rocketry, Inc. carries the AIRFOIL RAIL BUTTONS for the 1010 and 1515 rails. These beautifully styled buttons from scp concepts are a must have for your project. Yes, they reduce drag, but they also look really, really cool.

    LOL
    Yes we do. But I figured even though I knew the answer it was worth asking for people to get the right idea of how these work.

    Neat lugs, but at twice the price of the acme rail lugs and the low drag delrin buttons I guess they would be for specific uses like mach flights and other speed demon rockets. They look cool and I'll probably get some to try but regular rail buttons will probably be what I keep on hand.

    To my knowledge they will fit any 1010 or 1515 respectively...
    I love these, they are on every HP rocket I have ever built...

    Blacks Sky rails are subtly different. I will test them this weekend.
