Tomorrow I am going to my local DZ to work my way towars that A license that I want ever so badly. I am doing static line progression and my next several jumps will be practice ripcord pulls. I was just wondering what other people experiences had been while doing them, things to do and not to do. Also I was wondering if it is a practice ripcord is it attached to the container or what? If not will I have to hold onto it the whole way down? Thanks for any comments, answers, or suggestions.
