stowing sigma vectran
Has UPT offered a recommended procedure for stowing the new Vectran line on Sigma canopies? With Icarus we used to use larger, not tandem rubber bands, being careful not to let the stoe get to large in fear of bag locks.
We don't use the one inch bands but the slightly narrower tandem bands in the orange and blue box (can't remember off hand what the brand is called).
I prefer not to double stow.
Using the mini bands just seems right and double stowing seems wrong, and the bands seem to last longer when they are the right size.
The big bands fit well through the grommets and where you are stowing the line above the cascade, then below the cascades, (on the side stows) the mini bands re perfect, and you get more per pound... so economically it makes sense too.
