Spikes


I have been thinking about the splikes that I'm using for the Spikor and Son of Spikor rockets.  I'm using them as-is except I'm removing the hook.

I was thinking that these could also serve as the core of more conventional cones.



At about $3.25 for the 15" and $1.50 for the 10", they are economical.  You could probably wing a cardstock shroud which could either be reinforced itself or you could fill the gaps with 2-part foam.  The resulting cone would be heavy, but it would be tough.
