Re: [Net_Aviator] Need advice on used gear

In reply to:
Maybe I am trying to make plans way ahead instead of going step by step. Have read a lot of threads about the first rig and basically thats what everybody says. By investing in an old rig I thought I could save on gear rental and might be smarter then the rest.

Yes, that is what you are doing but there may be some misunderstanding here. We recommend buying used, not old. There is a major difference...and you don't yet know what that difference is.


In reality, you could go ahead and buy now but you will probably run into problems such as....

- maybe not wanting to continue.
- the parachute you get may be too small for your skills
- ...same with the reserve.
- you don't yet know what is good gear vs what is bad.
- you may know how to best protect yourself from buying not-so-good gear.

- and more


just sayin'
