Giant Leap Rocketry

giantleapcanWhen folks think of Giant Leap Rocketry the words "unique" or "innovative" come to mind. Any vendor can take a nosecone, a tube and some fins, throw the parts in a bag, and call it a "kit". But at Giant Leap Rocketry, they advance rocketry with new ideas and new concepts. For instance, their Mariah series rockets are far beyond anything in the hobby. Giant Leap coined the term "shotgun recovery" method. They also invented the Fireball zipper stopper, the Slimline Motor Retainer in classic style, nozzle shape and as a tailcone. Giant Leap introduced composite honeycomb fins to the hobby, and were one of the first to push the use of Kevlar chute protectors and cord protectors.

Giant Leap popularized the use of Kevlar cord as a shockcord when others were still using nylon cords. They convinced others about the dangers of using "elastic" shockcords and popularized the phrase "elastic cords belong in your underpants, not on your rocket."  Giant Leap also created Magna-frame and Dyna-wind, the industry standard in airframes. Their Pinnacle nosecones are the most advanced in the hobby. And of course their Fin Canisters – a great way to attached fins without the hassle! Giant Leap also carrys some of the most advanced chutes on the market – the TAC Parachutes. Also be sure to check out their Groove-Lok fin attachment system and our Hardpoint Anchor. 

You’ll also love their range of services. Need tubes cut or slotted? Want a cluster motor mount configuration, or some custom fins? Giant Leap has a superb machine shop at your disposal.
