Rhythm Lineup Change Can't Post

So I'm just curious what everyone thinks about the new lineup for Rhythm? Does this put them on the same level as Airspeed? World Class?

IMHO it absolutely does. I'm not saying that Rob wasnt that guy but they aren't losing anything by putting Chris Farina in that IC slot. If anything they are improving because I think Chris has a little more experience and he has a faster tunnel average (as well as the world record 66 pointer with Fury). I can't wait for the 2012 Nationals to see how it shakes down between Rhythm and Airspeed. Kudos to Steve, Janette and Thiago for making such a steady progression. it is awesome to see hard work, smart training, and dedication pay off. There is no quick way to the top and it is amazing to read Rhythm's story and see their progression.

I'm super bummed to see that Fury will no longer have many of the original members but maybe they are planning on adding in some new flyers. Either way they were a world class skydiving team and I was lucky to get so share a 4 way jump with all four of the original members. Like it has been said, skydiving is one of the most amazing sports because where else can an amatuer get to train with the pros! It is the equivlaent of getting to play a round of golf with Tiger Woods. Good luck to everyone in their future endeavors!

World Class - yes. Airspeed's level - don't know if anybody is at that level because of (IMO) sheer athleticism. I love to watch Rhythm though!

I think they'll get there in a couple years at the rate they're going. I thought they were in a tie for second for a long time, but ended up in 4th after a bad round. That's not bad at all for a team that doesn't have a tunnel at home, and only quit their day jobs to skydive full time last season.
