Re: [pchapman] Dropped toggle - recovery procedure?

People don't drop toggles, didn't you know that?</sarcasm>

It's certainly worthy of a conversation. I dropped/released/let go of a toggle on a flare and it cost everything from my L5 to my ACL/PCL.
It happened so fast at the flare.
*maybe* I could have gotten a rear riser had I been more adept and fast thinking. Since my accident, it's a practice to loop my palms through and pass the control line between my index and middle finger. Perhaps had I thought about it in advance of that jump, or been trained to deal with it, the outcome might have been different.
What are your suggestions?
