I recently purchased some igniters from a company that Brenton from RIMRA uses. The heads are bigger than the igniters that you all purchased. I traded two of them with Curtis. If they work in E and F composite motors I would like to buy some from anyone that has more than they need. Either that I can also trade some of mine. They work on C,D,E and F black powder motors.

Frank, I'm sure I'll be willing to part with some...

Great, thanks! It will be interesting trying different starters. Apogee sells some kind of igniter compound called Quick Dip. In the true Apogee tradition, it is expensive. www.apogeerockets.com/Rocket_Motors/Motor_Starters/QuickDip

The AeroTech First Fire Jr starters work really good but they are around $11.00 for three. I never had one fail.

Sorry, Frank. I use those orange e-matches to light BP motors. I doubt they would work for composite motors--especially 24 and 29 mm composites because the nozzle is so small. I just ordered a bunch of Estes Sonic igniters from Belleville Hobby for that.

No problem. It's the orange e-matches I'm looking to trade away for the white igniters that the CMASS guys recently purchased.
