    I'm still using a traditional D bag and rotating up. My only mods are dynamics corners on my vector with a sky snatch. I'm getting comfortable consistent openings and fly suits with a good flare... But thank you for the input.

    Just a thought: A couple of years ago while jumping in Z-hills I met a man. He approached me and kindly asked if he could look at my rig as I was jumping a certain one piece tracking suit and he stated that he was writing an article for Blue Sky Mag about wear and tear of equipment directly related to zippers and containers and the like... Naturally I said look all you want. Later he showed me his novel approach to placing his deployment bag inside the container and rotating it down instead of up (WS specific naturally). We talked that day and he gave me a T-shirt and a business card. It wasn't until I returned home and looked him up that I discovered I was talking to a FUCKING LEGEND! Moe Viletto. If by the odd circumstance you BASE jump and don't know who he is, look him up! I bring it up because I've never heard anyone discuss his approach to the D bag positioning...

    How much does slider size actually affect openings?

    Perhaps start with the cocooning and not wrapping it so much. For an example: https://squirrel.ws/public/manuals/Epicene_Pro_Manual_v201903rev2_WEB.pdf, perhaps not quite so loose, but you get the idea... Test jumping is fun/pull high!

    Fully altitude aware and knew straight away what the mal was and how to fix it... As a very new wingsuiter I had pulled at around 5000, for reasons! So Travis gave me a debrief, the likely cause was poor body position during deployment (dipping shoulder/maybe a little head low). Also NO WS mods on an older Wings rig didn't help any! Learn from others.

    haha, less than perfect for sure! yes and yes, the G's were real, and all I needed to due was unzip my left wing instead of riding the stuggle bus!

    Beginner wingsuit recommendations?

    STRONG ADVICE. You may HATE wingsuiting and while all the mods are needed if this is to become your thing, don't blow money away too soon... My .02

    ATC vs Freak 3?

    It may help that I've purchased three new suits from them in the past... But I digress. WINGSUIT!
