we were using them in guam for a bit until they upgraded to sigmas. if the question is concerning using anything other than the SET-400 or Master main (or whatever strong says you have to use) there should be plenty of others adding to this. My home DZ did (though not icarus mains) for sometime until they upgraded to sigmas as well.

I used to jump Icarus and strong mains in strong tandems. I'm sure that dz still does.

That is indeed the question and I have not had time to go look at the FAR's for tandems to make sure it was legal, so I asked here for a quick answer to see if or how many people are doing it.

As far as I can tell the FARs do not prevent you from using another main, and have not since the "experimental" thing came off. There is a strong argument that Strong Enterprises efforts amount to predatory trade practices.
