Watching out for newbies [was - hard impact at Nats]
i've posted something this morning that i later on deleted; it was about a jumper in this thread with 200ish jumps that got himself a 97 katana two days ago.
not only me, but a few others, some very experienced jumpers, unlike me, expressed our concerns about his choice.
apparently, this post got noticed by someone at his dz (or it was something else maybe!?). this guy delivered a message to said jumper that if that were true he purchased a katana 97, he would not be jumping at his home-DZ with it.
i kinda feel bad about it, i personally DO NOT like ratting out on people, but having watched a lot of videos from said jumper, it was clear he would not be able to handle the katana, not only by his skills, but also with his attitude. all he cares for is "looking cool" and "having it done". he doesnt even enjoy skydiving that much, he cares about being "badass".
i have more details that i wont post publicly, but if anyone is interested, feel free to PM me.
now, please get the flamewar on!
