My wife was out shopping at Toys 'R' Us with her Godchildren and being the good wife that she is picked up a rocket for me. She let the Godchildren pick it and I received an Estes 'Prowler'. I was impressed with the rocket selection power of the girls age 5 and 7.

The Prowler is a Beta (beginner) series rocket. It is a large rocket and a basic 3FNC design.

This kit was packaged in plastic and came in a box and was probably around $12.99. All the parts were included and none were damaged. The instructions were typical Estes and were excellent. The kit's uniqueness is the Glow-in-the-Dark decals. It is strongly noted on the Estes box and instructions that this rocket is NOT to be launched at night. The decals are for display purposes only. Who thought this up.... Beavis? The kit contains plastic Estes chute, balsa fins and plastic nose cone and body tube section transition rings, along with all the other standard Estes hardware.

The size of this rocket is impressive (for me at least) over 3 ft, but the power was not. Maximum C engine power with the package mount. I
