Can rigger add a RSL?

Recommended Posts

Order your G4 "RSL-ready," with velcro track and RSL guide rings already installed. Consider ordering your main risers "RSL-ready" also, that is, with the RSL ring already installed.

If your container is RSL-ready and your risers have an RSL ring, any rigger can add a factory-built RSL later.

From the sounds of it he's thinking of buying a used rig w/o rsl right?

Correct, I was thinking of buying a second hand rig, but unfortunatelly it hadn't got any provisions whatsoever for the fututre RSL installation. I still didn't make my mind and will check first with the master rigger at our DZ regarding the costs. Thanks for your help.

I learned something here:
A manufacturer will build a rig that is not RSL-ready.
I always thought the only thing that could NOT be ready would be the risers.
My reality and yours are quite different.

Hi

The older G4 & G3 had the pile velcro on the back of the reserve riser.

The new G4 does not have velcro anymore but a velcroless setting.

It has an under folded flap / channel on the left yoke & 2 guide rings on the top pin flap under the cover flap & velcroless lanyard which does have a Hook & Pile short velcro near the shackle side to create a stiffer fold when goes under the left mud flap.

The Mirage G3 & G4 have several length of the RSL lanyard based & match the reserve ripcord cable length.

This information is not in the manual.

I would recommend you to contact Mirage in Deland for more info.

Cheers

Hey Andy,

Teardrops were supplied without any provision for an rsl as standard (may have changed now though).
