Well, I made another coupon run to Hobby Lobby. Still no E12's (not out yet) or E9's (out of stock). They had one F23, one G40, and one G80. I bought the latter with one coupon. I have no immediate need for it and have often bitched and moaned about how much these cost but, for some odd reason, when one is dangled under my nose for $17, I want it. Next, like I need another kit like a hole in my head, I used the another coupon for a Estes Ventris. My only excuses are that I like building stuff and have no projects on the bench. My wife shook her head in despair and said, "Happy Father's Day!"
Below is a photo of the package and of the parts. I am fairly happy with what I saw in the bag. The tubes seem sturdy, the 1/8" laser cut fins appear to be good quality, the plastic transition and cone seem nice, and it includes their new screw-on motor retainer. The one weak spot appears to be the elastic shock cord and classic tri-fold mount. Elastic isn't the worst thing for this size rocket as my old NCR kits have survived many flights with it. I will, however, add either a steel or Kevlar leader through the top ring. I'll also swap the lugs for buttons. Building should commence tomorrow.
