    Wow,,,,,,
    That's really humbling Kurt,,,,,,,
    Thank you so much,,,,,,,,
    That 1" Kevlar is beautiful material, right ???
    That ought to handle that big boy no problem Kurt.........
    To be honest I'm really psyched to see the pic's of that rocket hanging on that 1" Kevlar,,,
    and the rest of the entire flight..........
    That should be a seriously cool flight.........
    All the best Kurt,,,,,,,,,,
    You enjoy that rocket and those cords,,,,,,,,,

    Mark,,,,,,,,
    You are unbelievable,,,,,,,,,,,,
    That is so cool I'm putting it up on my wall over my computer.........
    That is insane,,,,,,,,
    I'm laughing,,,,,, I'm not artistic,,,,,, never have been,,,,,,,
    The only thing I could think of was a shock cord spelling out---
    "Teddy's Shock Cords" or something like that..........
    That's pathetic compared to what you came up with.......
    Mark,,, you are the coolest,,,, smokinest,,,,,, baddest,,, bestest,,,,,,, everest................................
    Mark,,,,,,,I promise I will never use a can of spray paint again,,,,,,,,,,,,ever............

    Thank you so much,,,,,,,
    Even my wife Sandy flipped when she saw that..............
    Thank you Mark,,,,,,,,,,

    Aerotech G-force on a H128, at Lucerne Dry Lake Bed flying with ROC. My son will flying another G-force built similar to this or a Estes Argent for this Jr. L1

    Unfortunately, there were not any good recovery pictures of my L1 flight on a scratch build crayon rocket using one of your nylon shock cords or my L2 flight and recovery with a scratch build Excel DD copy with two of your kevlar cords. Included a few here. Crayon rocket on H128, Excel on a J350.

    Hope to get some better shots in December when we go launch again.

    Grrrr... how do you rotate pictures?

    Yes, that was a 38/720 on the Excel
    Thinking the first pic should have been a white lighting also... could have been the test flight on a G76Green but not a blue thunder load.

    I'm going to start working on my L3 after xmas. At this point looks like it's just going to be an upscale (1.5x) version of my L2 rocket using fiberglass tubes and G10 fins. I really like the looks of the BD Excel rocket.

    OK got my package today. I took advantage of the Black Friday Special - buy 3 and get the 4th one free

    Very easy to order - very quick service

    Opened the package and found these...

    photo (7).jpg

    But wait! There is more! As a bonus, I got free a nylon cord with the end protected by a Kevlar sheath PLUS it included the link!

    photo (8).jpg

    All the workmanship looks fantastic - can't wait for spring to try these out

    Thanks for the great service!!!!
    or should it be .............

    Think I had the same exact order as les...INCREDIBLE cords Teddy! This Kevlar material is very similar to the other Kevlar mule tapes that I have seen, but seems to be a bit tighter of a weave. No pulls at all in the threads.

    The extra shock cord is great! The great thing about that is I plan to pass your good deed on to my father for Christmas. He's always been wanting to build and fly a semi-scale Talos missile, so I intend to build him a kit in 4". He's been out of the hobby for a few years now, so this may be the right thing to get him back involved in the hobby.

    Thanks again!

    Oh your quite welcome,,,,,,,
    Both of you guys,,,,,, Les and Dan,,,,,,

    Dan I'm not sure what your lookin at but 4" sounds a bit big for a 1/2" cord unless it's NOT made of fiberglass.........
    I think I sent you a 9/16" cord anyway,,,,,,, with the Kevlar sleeve,,,,,,
    The Green tubular nylon is 1/2" the white is 9/16" ,,,, just a scoootch heavier,,,,,,,,

    Dan,,, I just made some cords up for a guy in California,,,,,,
    6" X 13 ft X 43 lbs,,,,,,,,, this is a big rocket..........
    I made him up some 1" kevlar cords,,,,,,,,,
    They came out georgous,,,,,,,,,,
    I don't know if that would fit your bill,,,,,,,
    I will tell you,,,, the 1" green tubular nylon you see is very heavy,,,,,,
    when I sew cords up whith this material you could literally tow a truck with them.........
    4" wouldn't be big enough for that material........

    Let me know...........
    Anything I can do to help..............
    Thank you again..........

    Greg,,,,,,
    Your package is the last on not delivered yet..........
    It seems strange,,,,,,, other packages went further all over the country and are already delivered.......
    And also,,, your tracking number says the package is in the sort facility at Teterboro New Jersey for 3 days ??????
    That's strange too..........
    I'm going to give it one more day,,,,,,, if your package doesn't show movement tomorrow,,,,,,,,
    I'm going to call the post office and ask them to look into it.....................

    They're extremely busy these days....lol....
    The lady said the package is probably in the Elgin Illinois post office.....
    She said it will likely be delivered today,,,,,
    If it isn't delivered today,,, she gave me the phone # to call that post office directly..........
    Fingers crossed,,,, it should be today..............

    Greg,,,,,,
    That's too funny,,,,,,,,
    The Teterboro sort facility says the package is in the Elgin Illinois post office.........
    The Elgin Illinois post office says they don't have it and don't know where it is..........
    Monday morning I'll call the post office,,,,,,,
    I'll have to give them a chance to find it,,,,,,a few days I guess,,,,,,,,,
    Then I'll reship,,,,,,,,,,
    Please do not sweat this,,,,,,,,,,
    I'm sorry it's taking so long for you to get your cords,,,,,,,,,,

    I'll take care of this Greg,,,,,,,,,

    Greg,,,
    It's Monday morn,,,,,
    I just got off the phone with a very nice gentleman at the Elgin Illinois post office......
    He looked up the tracking #..... There are many packages in this numbers's "lot"
    that haven't been "sorted" through yet. He said the volume they have been working through is just amazing...
    He is looking at 8 pallets outside his office that haven't been done yet,,,,
    he said there was a weather system that came through down south somewhere that
    affected things as well and that where this package is coming through.......
    He said ha has every reason to believe this is just a volume delay and it's not lost......
    They will get to it,,,, it may just take a couple of more days..........

    Greg,,,,,,,
    I don't think this is that big of a deal,,,,,,,,
    I've shipped a lot in the past weeks and this is the first one that's a bit slow.......
    More importantly,,, I don't want this to be a big deal to you..........
    If you wish,,, I will reship,,,,, just say the word,,,,,
    I think your going to have it shortly,,,,, as soon as they sort through the packages they already have......
    I think if I reship now you'll have the first package first..........
    Greg,, I'd like to wait a few more days if it's OK with you............
    Thanks so much for you patience Greg,,,,,,,,,,,
    Teddy

    Greg,,, Please remind me of this when you place your next order.............

    Greg,,,,,,,
    It's 11 PM on Wednesday,,,,,,,
    The tracking # still shows exactly the same...........
    I am very sorry for this,,,,,,,,,
    I guess with all the packages I've shipped it had to happen eventually.......
    I thank you so much for your patience.......
    I'm going to reship tomorrow.......
    Thank you again Greg,,,,,,,,

    Teddy

    And when the first package eventually shows up,,,,,
    that's a substantial thank you for your patience...........

    Teddy,

    Cords were delivered yesterday. Top notch quality and value for the buck. Can't wait to get them in the air next spring.

    I'll be back for more when the need arises.

    Thank you.
