Canopy packing question Can't Post

Would you "pro" pack a BASE canopy in a skydiving rig the same way you would pack a skydiving canopy or is there a different way you have to pack it ? Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

If I am doing a regular jump - then yes, I would propack it all the same. I would also rubberband the piss out of the 2" bite of the mesh slider to one of the center C lines and take a short-ish delay. Or I would use a larger sail slider and not worry about it too much.

If you freepack and rush the pull out the door, you may get some interesting results (pic attached)

Hi Pops, sorry to be hard of thinking but what's the issue with the canopy. I thought it was the PC under the nose but I can't figure it out. Blush
