Re: [hedge] two out main and reserve entanglment

When you're at terminal, things have gone to shit, and the ants are starting to look like people, Priority#1 is ending the skydive. A 2-out, bad as that can get, is an aerodynamic decelerator that ends the freefall; and then you can deal with whatever you've got at that point. When you cut away in freefall (and a pc in tow is still freefall) you're burning time and altitude pulling the one handle which, by itself, will do absolutely nothing to save your life.
