  1. just came across this,,,,get well soon jimmy!!!
  2. fix for a sabre1 has long been a dome slider. i have bought 3 from mel (mark lancaster) for different people. sabre1 is a great canopy still but first thing i would do is get rid of the existing flat or pocket slider and talk to mel. my comp velo has a domed slider as standard. icarus tandem canopies also. my option is they should be used as needed. you should only have one hard opening before making the change. do not let the canopy hurt you.
  3. the coated technora 400 (hma) from MEL on my comp velo. i would ask him (masterrigger1 here). a true expert i would say.

    Racer by Jump Shack

    i am going to call nancy to order a new racer, mine is a '98 (classic) and well used. highly under-rated rig imo.

    Pilot chute malfunctions

    it can be a nasty mal. i keep track of the jumps on a pc and replace it at a set number. retire it or give it away. do not wait until it stops working with good authority. do this because of a 2 out on a low hop n pop using borrowed gear. i also only jump my own gear.

    Stuffing into centre cells... wtf?

    sabre1 can open great with a new dome slider. i have bought 3 from skyworks rigging,,,masterrigger1 here. then no need to roll or stuff anything. just pack it normally.

    Two canopy out.. to release or not release?

    was not docile, did not want to fly straight. i think because it was a jedei120 and most likely a tempo120. in any case the one jump where i was very happy to get on the ground.

    Two canopy out.. to release or not release?

    i borrowed gear one time and had a pilot chute in tow on a hop n pop. when directly to reserve and (no surprise) ended up with 2 out. both canopies 120's. the 2 out was a biplane but a real handful to fly. maybe because the main and reserve were same size. the LAST thing i wanted to do was cut away the main and end up with the worst case scenario. I released the toggles on the front canopy, main. and landed it it by flaring. was not able to get close to the landing area,,,that is how much trouble it was to fly. if doing again i would perhaps not flare,,,,since had 240 sq ft over my head. now on my own gear i replace the pilot chute every 500 jumps. prevent at all cost.
