Monarch 175 Owners Manual? Can't Post

I was wondering if anyone had a Monarch 175 owners manual and line trim specs??? I bought a canopy that definitely needs a new line set, but the canopy fabric and stitching looks in good shape, at least for a few hundred jumps until I can afford a newer canopy.

I did. Also sent them an email last month. I guess they are pretty busy, and someone is eventually supposed to get back to me.

Just hoping for a quicker answer - I get so impatient sometimes.

Yes ...
About three years ago, Precision mailed me a complete line set for a Monarch ... I sewed the new lines on and the customer is still happily jumping his Monarch.

What size Monarch? They are not so responsive this month!!!!

Btw, you are not the same Rob that visited Cal-City in the 80's and helped with Butler Parachutes???? Didn't you borrow a Calculus book . . . .

I vaguely remember re-lining a Monarch 175.
George Galloway is rather selective about which Master Riggers he trusts to re-line Precision canopies. It might help if the request came from your friendly neighborhood Master Rigger.

Yes, I am the Rob W. who arrived in California City in late 1992. I worked for Manley Butler. When Manley announced that he was moving his factory to Virginia, we quietly parted ways. After a year in Cal. City, I moved down to the Perris/Elsinore/Hemet area until 1998. While in Perris, I worked for Sandy Reid - at Rigging Innovations - until he announced that he was moving the factory to Arizona.

You weren't at Manley's all that long - at least to the best of my recollection. Do you remember me per chance? I was the first person Manley hired at Cal-City. And I do not believe you returned my calculus book . . . you don't still have it by any chance? Lol, I am a math teacher now!Smile
