Good afternoon all! And a happy post vets. day to those who have served...Thank you.
I'm looking to get my own gear...used. I'm tired of renting gear...not that renting gear is a bad thing, but on some days there's actually a line to rent gear and it's first come first serve.
I'm a first year A lic. and wanted to buy a used 210 main and 210 res. However, I'm only 5' 5" and 130lbs. In looking at the classified I can find 210 main and res, but looking for a used container/harness in my size is hard to find.
So, i'm looking to just purchase, perhaps, a Mirage G4 that fits me and fits the canopies (i believe the Mirage G4 version M6 accomodate the canopies per Mirage's website).
I'm not interested in swooping and actually like flying the larger "cadilac" canopies. (I call my rented 210 canopy a cadilac ).
I want to stay on a 210 (or higher) for 2 or more years. That should give me time to really learn the canopy.
My question is what do ya'll think about buying a used main and reserve but just buying my own harness/container?
