The pulled cutaway handle was funny. Why not hang out and finish the skydive? More dangerous to leave early and hang your reserve out super high. :D



Why is that?
My reality and yours are quite different.

My thought is:
He had how many thousands of feet to clear the airspace above him and then deploy reserve?

If there is going to be a problem with the reserve, I'd want as much altitude as I can get to fix it.

I don't think he's reserve was full above 3500 ft, which is good enough IMO.

I watched it again. Maybe it's the wide angle lens or the slow mo, I don't know. It just seems like he left early, disappeared low and then opened a little high. I don't like losing track of people below me. Makes me nervous. :S:D

Similar thing happened at our DZ once. The guy backed off 50 feet and pulled high, but on level with everyone else.

@ Pops - If there's a problem with my reserve, I don't want much time to think about it . . .. :P

Just kidding.:D But I trust it quite a bit and am comfortable opening at normal altitudes with it. :)
