first? Forget these guys? got it in march 2014, built by june (And I'm not certain even this was the first to put a chute in a nosecone. I know guys who've done it for many moons.) and there's this- https://hawkmountain.ws/secure/kits.asp?productid=31588357379001 And Gary's Stinger in June of 2014.... https://www.flickr.com/photos/31757945@N05/14545094294/in/album-72157645494459693/This was the "first" ever HED kit, designed by me for Wildman, using Nose cone dual deploy or HED [head end deployment].
I'm not trying to be a dick....The beer might be though. The Widman I got was a one-off-ish short run, But there may have been some after.... So it was a kit prior to the punisher in that setup... I think it was the first with the cnc CR's and fins. I remember talking to Tim about them at URRF or LDRS or whatever it was that year. Had Al bulk plates too.Said it was the first to be KITTED [and made MAINSTREAM DD [dual deploy]], with a standard coupler/bulkplate av-bay coming with the kit. The nosecone shoulder.
Full explanation is in the referenced links.
I know of no other kits coming "standard" complete with Nose cone DUAL deploy before the Punisher.
Could be though.....I'm only right 87% of the time LOL
See post #72.I'm not that clever . I just hit order and got all that stuff. Looked for the post but can't find it, was a $99 sale here Tim ran
Saw your first comment about the Punisher and thought "wait, I have a Jimbo Jart with head-end that Wildman sold before the Punisher" then you redeemed yourself with this follow-up. Great little rocket too. We drag raced them that summer at URRF - Potter Farm.I'll give ya this & you are correct... a couple year's or so before all this, on Black Sat sale, Tim had a 4 in Jart special. The only time he made 4 in Jarts. Called it the "Jimbo Jart".
It was a limited run, never to be seen again, THIS is the actual first run of HED dual deploy that I came up with then, for the Jimbo Jart.
