The new StarTech starters stay true to the design of the original, with one key addition. The small nichrome wire, the one that heats the propellant at launch, has been dipped in a specially crafted chemical compound that reacts with the heat of the wire to create a large burst of heat and pressure that ensures ignition. Never misfire again! Includes 6 starters.

60 years ago, Vern Estes released the first commercially available model rocket motors. With it, came the Estes Starters that we all know and love. They've fueled the hobby for decades and are responsible for safer model rocket launches than any starter in history. When it came time to update this technology, we wanted to stay true to the simple design that made the Estes starters and motors a legendary combination, we just wanted to kick it up a notch! The new StarTech starters stay true to the design of the original, with one key addition. The small nichrome wire, the one that heats the propellant at launch, has been dipped in a specially crafted chemical compound that reacts with the heat of the wire to create a large burst of heat and pressure that ensures ignition.

Tried these when they were first introduced and I'm very happy and impressed. I used the 4 "AA" type and 9V type launch controller and not a misfire in the bunch. Made sure I was using fresh, alkaline batteries as you always should and using 12 igniters gave me 12 launches.
