I agree with Mark. Capture the fin tabs.

I say capture the fin tabs, so I would prefer the second one on top of the fin tab, if you don't have an option for 3.

Taking a pole.

I know what I want to do. This is just for discussion, especially for the newer flyers who may be wanting to get into more mid-high power flying. (Chris will like that!)

This rocket uses a Loc 5.5 in airframe with a 38 mm MMT and will fly H-J motors.
I have only 2 centering rings. Adding a 3 ring is not an option.

Do you like:
1: the forward ring in the most forward position at leading fin tip
or
2: on top of the TTW fin tab?

The other will of course, will be located behind the fin tab.

Thanks for your input.
