Rockets are no longer made. Broadly speaking they were a custom product tailored to specific drone bores, so even if you found a used set for sale, they might not go well in your pipes. You might want to experiment with one or two of the styles of Kinnaird reeds ( original, Evolution, or Edge) as these were/are a production version very much based on Mark Lee's Rockets.

Cheers!

Probably no one knows how they were tailored, what parameters were changed in what way for what differences?

Many years ago Mark Lee posted some design data for the Rockets. I think it is archived on Andrew Lenz's site somewhere.
