  1. I've had 5 Sabre2s...currently have (2) 190s in my rigs. They do open off heading sometimes but the flight characteristics and powerful flare more than make up for it. Never line twists for me. The end cells sometimes inflate slow but ALWAYS inflate. I never give them a second thought. Love my Sabre2... P.S. I have jumped lots of other canopies to see whats out there...won't trade for any of them. Blue skies!!! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies!

  3. I have all three. Am I screwed? Then you become a jump pilot... Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...

  5. I was honored to be part of the 130-way POPS World Record set on Sunday, October 9, 2016. On Saturday we set the 128-way record which was destined to be beat on the last jump of the last day. It was an awesome and safe event. The organizers and captains did an excellent job putting the event together. Dan BC and the entire Perris staff were outstanding as usual. We were told to prepare to beat it in two years. I can't wait! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  6. You can give Skydive Perris http://www.skydiveperris.com/ a try also. Super nice folks there as well. It might be a bit busier on weekdays also. Blue skies! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  7. I think I will hold onto my current 1DX. The 1DX MkII has amazing new features but doesn't have enough of a separation to make me want to upgrade. My 1DX does everything I need it to and more. If I was really into 4K shooting I would probably go with a dedicated video camera for that. Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...

  9. I jump with a guy who has one eye and he does fine. It doesn't seem to affect him at all from what I can tell. Get on a load!!! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  10. Don't jump helmets without cutaway systems (or a grellfab mount). If that's not an option and you absolutely must, there's pictures of people using these: https://www.chutingstar.com/skydive/bonehead-cutaway-chincup-kit https://www.chutingstar.com/skydive/chin-cup-quick-release-kit and of course there's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuqJV3eRH0g Not sure how successful they would be. Those wil not work with a KISS helmet. Neither will the Germain suggested chinstrap release. Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  11. I think of it as if you eliminate the snag hazard you won't need to cutaway. I have a full on camera helmet setup complete with a cutaway system. Having said that I see the Cookie Roller Mount as a super snag resistant solution. I am much more worried about collisions, canopy collisions, etc. than I am about the mount. I'm sure a bridal or line could possibly half hitch around it but I see that as a very remote possibility. If you are super worried about it I suggest a Cookie Fuel or equal with a roller mount and cutaway chincup. That would be the ultimate camera safe rig in my opinion. Good luck! Chad B Hall Woo hoo!

  12. I personally found the Pulse to be too docile for my tastes and the flare weak. I am not a high performance guy...I fly Sabre2 190s at 1.25. I like the flare and handling of the Sabre2 much better. Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  13. I used the Cookie Roller Mount on mine. The curve is slightly different but I was able to mount it with little effort. The Cookie Roller Mount is the best snag resistant mount on the market in my opinion...I know others have their own opinion but I am pretty confident wearing it and feel it is a good mount for my uses. Good luck and blue skies! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
  14. You can use Priceline to get a car for $20 or less per day. A car is really the most inexpensive part of your trip. One jump costs more. I was recently there and had a full size car for 12 days...total cost $225 plus fuel. Good luck! Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies!

  15. I have one in both of my rigs. I'm not a swooper so I am not worried about my speed under canopy causing problems. I also think it should be mandatory the same as seat belts...unless you are a swooper or have a technical reason it would be more dangerous with one. We all have reserves, right? Because something may and will eventually happen to our mains. I'm obviously not counting BASE folks who are not really in this discussion. Some things just make sense and save enough lives to warrant adoption by all...like seat belts...and AADs...and reserves...and inspections...and... Just my humble opinion. Blue skies doods!!! Woo hoo!!! Chad Chad B Hall Woo hoo! My goal is to make every jump a fun and safe one. Blue skies! Some of my videos...
