Default 1329 Multi-Roc - Being reissued?

A post on TRF said a hobby shop had gotten a price sheet with this upcoming release:

EST-1329 Multi-Roc Model Rocket Kit (Skill Level 3) $22.99

Hoping John will confirm. The question though is that this originally used PNC-50x used on only 7 kits like the Scamp and Scorpius, so will it come with that nosecone?

I would like to see the PNC-50x and PNC-50y return.

It's in the 2018 catalog on the same page as the Little Joe and Explorer Aquarius (both now out). So it should be soon. Looking at the illustration it may be a 50X-shaped nose cone.....

Here’s hoping, Maybe John Boren will weigh in. He was nice a few years ago to provide a list of new kits (then) using the classic PNC-55ao.

Sorry but the Multi Rock does not contain the PNC-50x nose cone. It uses a Ogive type cone which is a less rounded cone.

I posted to the Estes FB page about my own experience using the Multi-Roc in rocket classes for 5-6 grade and the Estes bot ( ) responded favorably.

New version of the Multi-Roc is in stock at AC Supply but not yet on the web site. Their price is $13.79. They graciously agreed to add a couple of them to the order I have there awaiting the RTF Saturn Vs to come in.

Team Estes flew an upscaled Multi-Roc in Classic Model at NARAM-60. Quite the model, that.
