Hard Openings Can't Post

Trying to figure out WTF is going on with my rig. Ive had 3 openings where it felt like maybe one of the risers was hanging up, followed by a HARD opening canopy. The last one riser whipped the shit out of me so much I was seeing stars for a little while under canopy, Pirateand I was lucky to land OK. My Rx Bobsters weren't so lucky, & my helmet has a nice gash in it. Im jumping an Infinity I-44 with a Pilot 168 that Ive packed the same way for 140 jumps with no drama of any kind until this. A couple of riggers at the DZ looked at my rig & didnt see anything obvious. Riser covers seem to release OK on the ground.
BTW-May be unrelated, but this all started happening right after my last reserve repack.
