  1. Blue technora groupie here as well. From my girlfriends 107 Sabres to my Velos and Petras, I‘m never going back! Thank you, MEL!

    Looking for some ideas

  3. The Spectre hasn't changed at all, 2002 vs 2018 shouldn't make a difference. But beware of correct jump numbers on the older canopy and show it to a rigger if in doubt. very often have I seen advertised 200 jump "closet queens" become 800+, once I had hands on the canopy.

    Comp Velo v Valkyrie

    Harness sensitivity and openings, little better slow flight capabilities but really not that much I haven‘t flown either VCs or Valks loaded that low, though. The biggest difference between them for me is that the Valk handles higher loadings better than the VC and of course the openings.
  5. A lot of people on here have a military background and static line experience under rounds. Sadly beside the general mindset and determination those skills beside a proper plf aren‘t worth much in a normal skydiving environment. Even civilian static line training is completely different from equipment to exit and canopy/ landing. So coming to a dz with your military static line certificate won‘t get you anywhere near a plane door to jump out of. The T11 is probably the slowest falling semiround you could jump, with a descent rate of 3-5m/s. I highly encourage you to visit Germany and jump one of our T10 rounds. You will think quite differently about your „hard“ landings under the T11 afterwards :) Go get yourself on a military FF program. It‘s worth it!

    G3 mouth piece and grellfab

    I‘ve been using my G3 without the mouth piece from day one. You might experience more fogging when exhaling through your mouth in colder temperatures but other than that no difference for me. What I did notice with the liner is that it settles after a few month of use at at least half a size bigger. I don‘t like neither the chin mount on the G3 nor the one on the Aero. A light unintentional bump of a fellows foot during exit and you can count yourself lucky if it‘s still there.

    *Slow clap* So you successfully redirected him to his own thread.

  9. Spain? You do know their tech comes from NZ, right. Nope. The two companies parted ways a while ago and the S-Fire and X-Fire canopies are their own babies.

    Fluidwings Gangster

    The gangster packs exactly as big as any new wing would with partly xbraced internals. Nothing new about them adding to the pack volume since the Excalibur. Please make informed decisions, not vague guesses.
  11. Another anecdotal experience: 3 grommets, Semistowless DBag, large rubbers, Double wrapping, lines are HMAs 400 I need to replace one rubberband in about 20-30 jumps

    Katana's dont kill people...

    The Sabre2 is a very common recommendation for that job. So people are expected to go from a Saber2 to a crossbrace? As I mentioned, Stiletto. First I thought you were trolling but you seem to be serious about your Stiletto swoops... other than extremely low hooks and toggle monkeying combined with an instant recovery, what exactly do you think makes a stiletto a reasonable canopy choice for a pilot trying to get into HP- landings?

    Chin mount on Skyhelmet Fujin

  14. Not exactly true. No necessary and/ or life preserving treatment is going to be denied, ever. If you’re not insured you will receive a bill, same as in the US.
