Always use Estes Recovery Wadding! Review by alex

Estes Recovery Wadding is flameproof for a reason- to keep your chute from getting scorched and to keep flaming wads of paper from falling from the sky (like regular old Toilet Paper does-WHICH IS A BIG HUGE NO-NO! DO NOT USE REGULAR OLD TOILET PAPER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!).
Pack your Estes Recovery Wadding somewhat loosely so that it doesn't "plug" the body tube between the engine and recovery device (parachute, streamer, ect), and you will experience successful recoveries.
We have got in habit of "patrolling" the launch field after launching and picking up all of our wadding that has fallen back earth. A good idea to "tidy up" after a good launch event so we can't be accused of "littering".
Great Stuff- and you really can't launch without it- so always have extra on hand- I do.

great price Review by john

When me and my girls shoot a lot of rockets, it's good to buy wadding in packs like this.

Good for protecting recovery system, but hard to put into rocket Review by Juliet

The rocket needs protection and the recovery wadding is flame resistant, but I had trouble getting the wadding stuffed into the rocket. Since each sheet is very thin (but very long), I thought that I could just shove all of the wadding (3-4 sheets) into the rocket, but I had to end up doing it one at a time. ESTES NOTE: We recommend you tear the wadding at the perforations and insert one sheet at a time.

Must have!! Review by Chris

Don't fly your rockets without this! 6-8 sheets recommended for sure safety! ESTES NOTE: The number of recommended sheets is determined by the body tube size and not all rockets will need 6-8 sheets.

Wadding Review by Carmen

Good stuff...worked as expected. Kept the rocket and parachute from burning up.

must have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Review by daniel watari

it is important to have this wadding because you'll find that without it your rockets can crash and burn to pieces. back in the fifth grade i launched a rocket without wadding, i launched it and about after 400 feet the rocket started burning.

you NEED this! Review by MJA RocketWorks

Plain and simple:without wadding, your parachute will burn and your rocket will crash. Plus, before a launch, I always check my rockets to make sure they have wadding and have never burned a parachute. 75 sheets will keep you stocked for a long time.

**Must Have** Review by Billy

Some people think that they can just use ordinary tissues or TP but doing so will not let your rocket perform to the best of its ability. It's also dangerous as it could start a fire and is against NAR protocal. ESTES NOTE: Recovery Wadding is flame resistant and required in all Estes Rockets and protects your recovery system and rocket.

i remember when i was introduced to model rocketry in my 9th grade and i didnt know about the wadding and i burned up my parachute, i laugh about that because i was never told it existed or we need it. now i have packs of it waiting to be used
