I had a similar situation this weekend. I threw out and felt nothing for about 1 1/2 seconds. Long enough to say," What the f--- is this." Then I had a canopy, but I was already on the handles.
So I guess you had a hesitation. How did you fix it, or did it just fix itself?
Well, ya can look over your shoulder to break the burble and deal with the asymetric line stretch as the pilot chute takes off. However, the "better plan" is to always positvely throw your pilot chute... a lazy throw can result in a pilot chute hesitation... I've had pilot chutes flop in my burble, smack me in the back of the head and then take off... that will wake you up!
