Looking for a rig
hello all fellow skydivers, ive been skydiving for about a year now and have 38 jumps.i jump every weekend w/student gear and finally realize i need my own gear. only one problem... ive not much money to spend. if any fellow jumpers would be interested in helping me out maybe by selling a reliable inexpensive rig it would by much appreciated
Some dealerships have "demo" programs, which are basically layaway plans that allow you to use their demo rigs. The nice thing about demo plans is that you can try a bunch of different brands and models of canopies and systems and see which one you really like before you spend your money. The downside is that demo plans are probably not as available at smaller DZ's, I'm spoiled living here in So. Cal. with big DZ's and gear shops with demo plans.
Of course you could just buy a rig the American way - use your plastic ! Pay it off sooner rather than later, establish yourself a good credit rating, and do your patriotic part to help boost the economy.
