Buying a Voodoo and..... Can't Post

Since I probably will start learning in the tunnel would belly fly for a year first, do you recommend going with freefly pud right of the bat to get used to it, or can I have it changed/sewn on after a year when rig is inspected and repacked during off-season?

Do they make a freefly hackey? Hmmmm....

Thanks

Get the more secure handle. A hackey is less secure anyway. Becoming used to any handle is a matter of simply using it.

isn't the Voodoo designed for "smaller" canopies (max 150-170sqft) ??

wouldn't you consider a bit premature to ask what kind of rig to buy before starting the activity ?

I understand the excitement, but I would suggest to wait a bit. Smile

I am RETURNING to the sport after a long layoff.

Without showing my age, I am flown everything from a

T-10>Para-commander>Manta>Raven 111>Pd 210>Excalibur 190> Stiletto

At my weight, age and level of fitness, I think the Sabre 2 is perfectly acceptable and am comfortable with.

But I appreciate the consideration, I really do! Smile
