Altimaster V ?? Can't Post

I have been looking for a new or slightly used Altimaster and I ran accross an ad on E-Bay for an Altimaster V. Is this guy for real ? I cannot find any info on an Altimaster 5 on their website. To me it looks like an Alti2 with an Alti3 hand mount. What do you think ?

I tried sending him e-mail, but I have not heard anything back yet.

Ebay ad is here

I had one for about six months when I first started jumping. It broke pretty quickly. It's definitely the cheapest of the Altimaster line.

What Bill said. They haven't been available new for a couple of years now. I had one; it wasn't very accurate. It survived 50 tandem landings before I brushed it across the ground on one and it fell to pieces.

I wouldn't bother if you have to pay more than about $25 for it...

pull & flare,

Ok...that explains why I have not seen it before.

Thanks for the quick answers.

I had one given to me. Mine only goes to 4k feet. I don't use it and have just started looking for info on it. I will probably just end up keeping it as a memento. Smile
