New Engines and Kits at Hobby Lobby

The new Estes black powder E16 and F15 engines were at the Orlando Hobby Lobby yesterday.
The Majestic and Ascender boxed ARTF rockets were also in stock, only one of each.

I was most interested in the new STARTER igniters. You could see them in the blister pack.
They resemble the standard Estes igniters with the thin bridge wire.
The "pyrogen" dip is a silver gray color, not black. There is less coating on the tip, you can make out the bridge wire on the outside of the centered silver coat.

Sorry, no pics! I couldn't get them off the phone -
