The Universal Hybrid is going to be the most versatile but a long BP spindle will do better for lifting power in my experience. I just said screw it and bought a master rocket set since I got tired of wondering if I had the best spindle.

 

 


Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

Universal or Super BP will provide plenty of variety of motors/fuels for pyro.

Josh, Those cohete sets are great! Super easy

Pyro Joe.
If you just want bp rockets standard bp tooling will do you great and you'll be lifting 4in. Ball shells in no time.
THE universal will make a freckle less power right off the bat but allows you to delve into whistles and other motors later as you press them. (Assuming you'll hand ram the first ones)

I talk to tons of pros pretty much all day and am always willing to help.

Caleb alluded to it, but you do need a press to take full advantage of these multi-use spindles.  Anything with whistle, strobe, or hybrid fuels should be pressed and not rammed.  However you can still make core burners or nozzleless rockets just by ramming.  A core burner type spindle will have the most lifting capacity.  Tooling is nice to have, but end burners can be done a little more easily by hand drilling the nozzle if you want to experiment a little bit.  


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

Caleb's 1# Universal Hybrid set runs $105.00 on his site. The stainless steel rammer is great for those just starting out. I think we counted 15 different rockets that can be made with the UH set. 

 

I have Caleb's 5/8" endburner set for girandola motors and could not be happier! I put up a half dozen 24" dolas this past summer with drivers made with this tooling, they all worked perfectly!
