You think THAT'S scary?

I suggest you don't EVER size down.

Also, your friend needs a freefly friendly rig.

Also........ BEER!



Aside from the comment about the open pin flap... one of the most unhelpful posts I've read here in this forum in quite some time.

I'll add; make sure the cat's eye setting in the steering line is below the ring on the riser and when stowing the risers in the channels, make sure the toggles don't become loosened. That is, if you're packing for yourself.

Sometime toggle fires just happen.
You have to be prepared for that eventuality.
Especially on a highly loaded canopy.

Lighten up, spaz.

It was a routine cutaway.
He did everything the way he was supposed to.
There's nothing more to learn from it.



Don't jump to conclusions! I learned that you make silly assumptions and give bad advice:)

deployed at 3500 according to my altimeter it said I was in the sattle by 2500, I chopped around 1500 and was in the sattle in the reserve around 1200-1300



Good try for correction and good decision to chop.
Don't let the blowhards get ya, a mal is a mal and yours could have been deadly if you had not taken correct action in a timely manner. Been through a couple and each one is scary.

It is true that a higher performance 'chute can make this look tame. (and frankly, so can a lightly loaded canopy) There are much scarier conditions.

But, given a bad situation, you done good.

Good job!

The parts I liked best were:
-you pulled the reserve handle anyway (good practice)
-this vid is another testimonial to PULL THE DAMNED RESERVE EVEN IF YOU ARE SPINNING AT CUTAWAY!

:D:D
I feel better now.
:D:D

My reality and yours are quite different.
I think we're all Bozos on this bus.
