Post #1 of 3
I just bought Raven III DOM '92 that was never jumped or assembled for dirt cheap, but not sure if I should use it due to WL of 1.15:1 I searched all over DZ.com and everyone saying that old style reserves shouldn't be loaded more than 1:1. Plan B is to try to trade it for something like Raven IV or PDR 280+? Anyone jumped Raven III 249 as a main loading it 1.1-1.2?

In the best scenario, you will get 70 ... ish jumps before it starts flaring like a bag-lock. In the worst-case scenario, you will break an ankle on your first landing. Bottom line, anyone who loads a Raven at more than one pound per square foot is vastly increasing the risk of injury.
