    Barely used full rig purchased brand new form the Ranch Pro Shop in 2014 while I was a cadet. The container is a mirage G4 sized M5 (see data card). The main is a Sabre 2 190 and the reserve is a PD Optimum 193. Both have a DOM of 10-14. The AAD was purchased in 2011 with a DOM of 53/11 so it still has some life. Overall I've put less than 50 jumps on this rig and the reserve has 1x ride (not a malfunction, I literally couldn't reach the hacky handle due to powerlifting). This rig is in excellent condition and comes with a ranch pro shop carry bag as well. I'm into powered paramotoring now but I got out of the sport a couple of years ago (hence the reserve ride). Willing to hear best offer. UPDATE: At the time of purchase I was 5'10" and around 225-230 if that helps with sizing. Be aware though, that Mirages website sizes have apparently updated so an M5 now is apparently not an M5 in 2014.

  2. Thanks for the input. Quite honestly I'm just looking for ideas, I'm open to anywhere so long as there's an amazing view from exit. I've been to Moorea before and I loved it! I never considered that there would be skydiving there though... I'll look into it. Any other ideas?
  3. It's a little bit of a drive but Skydive Oregon in Molalla is a good DZ. I received my AFF there before moving on to the Ranch in NY. They're sticklers about rules which IMO is a good building block for new students. Suffice to say it's a professional DZ. The only negative I have was that it's tandem oriented and there aren't a lot of fun jumpers around (at least when I was there).
  4. BLUFF: I want to skydive in a tropical heaven where the USD is strong and the location is gorgeous. I was thinking Thailand originally, but it appears that there aren't any DZ's near the ocean/islands. Fiji looks like a good potential, and I've heard about places in Mexico, but I'm not sure. I'm leaning towards the south pacific. I'm a college senior so I don't have wads of cash (planning on back packing as much as I can), but I'm not picky. THROW A DART AT THAT GLOBE AND LETS GET HER GOING!
