Just bought from Rebar, and glad I did
Just got an auction/order in the mail from Rebar Rocketry that I won on ebay. Talk about FAST! Excellent products at an excellent price. Let me tell the story....
My original intent was to purchase the Teleflite Book of Rocketry Forum Forbidden Subjects (but, hey, that's just my inquisitive side.... ) Saw what I wanted, ordered with the "Buy it Now" feature, and Paypal'd the money. A short time later I got an order confirmation, and an email that suggested looking around the ebay store for extra savings on kit lots and shipping charges. And I'm a sucker for a bargain....
Checked out the ebay store, and saw that he had a lot of 8 Semroc lots that ended up being about 10% off retail cost (retail one these is quite reasonable to start with) and I'd been planning on buying some of Semroc's kits anyway. I need an occasional nostalgia rush sometimes. And, what the heck, I think there was an addition buck for shipping. So I bought them.
Within a couple of hours, I had another confirmation email stating that my order shipped via USPS priority mail, with confirmation number. Two days later, it was here, packed perfectly and in order. The book is massive and packed with information. The Semroc kits are going to be fun builds; just as I remember from my mis-spent youth.
You only get one shot at making a first impression. Rebar Rocketry has made quite the first impression on me. I see that they are carrying a good assortment of kits from the independent manufacturers such as the aforementioned Semrocs, as well as Fliskits, Sunward, ASP, and others. Been meaning to try kits from Fliskits, Sunward and ASP. I think I know where I'll be getting them from!!!!
You can tell I am jazzed about this vendor... my experience was such that it inspired me to take time to make a logo for the company for the EMRR logo contest. I don't have enough time to build as many rockets as I want to, let alone do graphics, so you know I'm happy!!!
Try 'em, you'll like 'em
