Thanks,

Sadly I'm not participating, but I do love Pro29 3G- gonna fly the Minuteman on a G54? G33? H87? That ought to be fun either way...

The ProDAT is the same for 24, 29 & 38 if you know someone who flies 38mm CTI. You just need a spacer thing to center the delay unit- I can post a pic of mine when I get a minute.

I only currently fly my CTI 29mm 3 grain in my Estes Partizon.
Nothing bigger than a G for the Minute Man due to lack of strength, but if I get the Madcow Go Devil 29 minimum diameter rocket from a secret santa, then I would stick a nice H87 in that! :)

Thanks,

Simple solution to that issue:
-G54 is OK. Nice soft full G. Easy.
-Look at an H54 WLB. Only slightly more, no problem.
-Then check out the H90 classic. Similar off the pad, only a bit shorter and harder.
-Then an H87 Imax is easy.

That's what we call inductive reasoning.:wink:
