OK had this idea . Like the NCAA field of 64.
TRF rocketry march madness.
TRF'ers summit a short list of your 3 favorite PRODUCED/Manufactured and sold rocket kits off all time.
Top 64 kits make the field.
I Will post chart and seedings.
Then via the polling function we will have a few head to head rocket offs per day.
This would be just for fun to see what the most popular kit would be.
I know there would be a lot of postings and such so I want to make sure it is
OK with TRF ADMIN-Let me know.

Since he only said kits and not size, I'm going to assume HPR kits are included. Since my HPR rockets are scratch built, I'll only go up to MPR.

Binder Design Thug
Astron Drifter
Art Applewhite 18mm Double Helix

with about 30 tied for 4th. Ask me tomorrow and I'll probably have a different list.

Hi All,
I just wanted to be clear from the start of the thread.
The top 4 rockets that gets the most votes will be the number one seeds in there respective divisions. Then rockets after that will be seeded as to the
votes they receive. I want to keep this as simple and non political as possible.
OK here are my three.

Estes Orbital Transport
Estes Maxi Alpha
Estes Der Red Max

Please include Manufacturer if you know it.-Thanks
