I just finished my 8th jump on a static line progression, a repeat of the 5 second delay. It went horribly. I lost my stability right off of the strut, made a complete roll, thought I had it stopped, then ended up on my back again. I reached the 5 count on my back, so I pulled. I had a nasty stepthru. I had both of my arms wrapped in the risers, and I was upside down (feet in the lines) under a good canopy. I got my feet down and managed to pull my arms out of the twisted risers and flew the canopy in just fine. The part that scares me is that I stepped through on my hop 'n pop also (again, nothing serious, my arm wrapped in the riser, I got out of it and flew the canopy in). Most of the people that I have talked to haven't had 2 stepthrus ever, let alone in 3 jumps. I also took a gentle tumble on my first attempt at the 5 second, and got lucky that I was on my belly when pull time came around.
So I guess my question is: What am I doing wrong? I went from a sloppy arch on the hop 'n pop to trying really hard on the delays, and it still didn't work. I'm really concerned. I've gotten lucky that I didn't have to cut away on either of those stepthru's, and I'm worried that I'm risking my safety for something that I'm just not capable of doing.
