 I was looking for some info on their helmets and was told there was something new coming soon. Be interesting to see what it is.

The Rigging Innovations Voodoo Curv will be doing its first PIA apparition. It was already shown at Skydive Expo, but now there are more sizes available, and also some minor changes have occurred. Definitely worth a visit.

Would it really matter? Your V3's are the same as they would be if there was or was not a V4.

Is it marketed by Wings ? Shocked
designed by Henri Pohjolainen certainly Tongue (but what I say are ASSumptions, I could be very wrong, as usual)

I saw it in person a few months ago. When everyone came up to it and said "Looks like a Wings" the guy with it, can't think of his name, would reply strongly with no its not a Wings.

"Hey Dave, that's a nice looking Wings tandem rig you got there." LaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

Looking over the schedule I see a program on packing the "eRacer" pilot emergency parachute. Never heard of Racer getting into the PEP market.

Jump Shack/Parachute Labs/the Racer factory have been building pilot emergency parachutes for more than a decade, but they have not advertised very loudly.

Why?
I have never packed a Racer PEP, but expect it to pack similar to a Strong Para-Cushion PEP.

Yeah I guess you are right. Have packed hundreds and hundreds of Strongs- guess the Racer one wouldn't be any different.

Maybe I'll go to the packing class there. Might as well learn.

MarS should be there showing their m2 AAD. I'd be interested to hear opinions on it after the PIA.
