At Couch Freaks

My first chop in 16 years. Number 12.

I always release the side on the spin direction first. Usually the "bad" side.

Gave up pretty quick after looking it over and got it flying straight with opposite side toggle.

Say good bye, release left toggle immediately before chopping and then cuss your packer.

No way I could have reached silver before deployment number 2.

Super fast.

I gotta ask, what altitude when you chopped? Didnt look to be much time from reserve opening to landing..

Snipping excess footage. I don't like YouTube movies that go ON and ON and ON. Prolly about 1900 on opening. 2k Chop.

The gear was lying at the rigger's feet when I walked in with the rest of the pack job. Cost 120 with tip. I untangled the main for him. Thank you gear shaggers. Freebag attached to main, of course.

Think that is the main that landed in the camping area. If it was I acctually seen some one run under it and catch it. Took it straight to Dave. Check out Skyhook Velo 111 close call on youtube Thats my chop under spinning line twists. not even a single half twist in my reserve! I <3 Bill Booth!! Blush
