  1. Any good? .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  2. Depends how you look at it. A rough estimate would mean that a Pilot ZPX 168 would be the same size as a Safire 2 169 or a sabre 2 170. Aerodyne measure their canopies from the bottom skin while PD and Icarus measure from the top skin. So A pilot ZP 168 would not always fit in a container that would take a firm Sabre 2 170 In other words it is only one size smaller than Regular Pilot ZP canopies but the same size as regular PD and Icarus canopies. Thats pretty much my take on it. I have a bunch of ZPX demo canopies on the way, Once they arrive I will be able to play around a bit more and get more hands on. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  3. Loads of good ideas here in this thread. Im loving some of those Nova. Not too sure where the green came from though. if that like blue red and yellow mixed together? .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  4. Wonderhog with a sabre one holding an original slider and any old square reserve. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  5. I dont think so mate. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  6. Cool. However getting that logo into a DST file for that container and then getting the three parts embroided would cost about as much as the container itself. I do like the yellow kkrew on the side. Loads of awesome designs so far. I never actually pictured getting containers with red and yellow but it seems the obvious choice. Would like to maybe tone it down a bit though. Anyway, will see next friday as it looks like we have a lot to choose from. Thanks for all your help guys. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  7. here is sunburst and fire. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  8. Angus Dorbie was the guy who did the designs. I agree, he did an awesome job. I am not sure about putting our logos on the fleet of demo rigs. Someone might give me a bit of shit saying that the rig is not a karnage krew rig when it is in fact a UPT rig {dig dig}. Anyway, logos are attached. Also attached some clothing designs we have just ordered to show you what those designs were intended for. (smiley on the hoody is embroidery)- Also has the United PArachute technologies logo on one sleeve and NZAerosports logo on other sleeve after speaking with manufacturers.not an advert! as all pre order slots are sold out. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  9. There are some pretty cool designs here. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  10. What will you do for me if i buy the last one you dared me to do? What I am looking for here is one design to use on all our demo rigs, thats not to say we wont try and bust a record of MOST colours used on a single container for just one of them. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  11. Multiple entries are all good. enter a thousand times. Post them all here. Some of you are sending PM's, some are sending emails. Post them all up here. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  12. The main colours I think are yellow , red, royal blue, black. I am looking for a container design that is not too overwhelming using very overwhelming colors. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  13. I am about to purchase a few containers and looking for a design that I will use on them all. I thought it might be a bit of fun for someone here to design a Vector 3 using colours that the KarnageKrew use on the website. The design i go with will win a new Optima 2 from the L and B products. Deadline is the 4th November. If you are interested, lets see your designs for us. You can use the designer at We will use the winning design on our fleet of demo rigs that we are purchasing next week. Just thought this might be a interactive fun way to come up with a design. Cheers. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  14. You have a Vector 3. You opted for the Micron Embroidery. it is a option. As for putting sigma on a vector 3, that would make no sense. A sigma is a sigma. A M-Series or a Micron are both Vector 3's. Alot of people like the word Micron and they ask to have the Micron embroidery on their container. The container comes standard with the make and model embroidery (i.e. VECTOR 3) So that is the name of the container. Then the customer gets to put whatever embroidery on their container they like from the UPT embroidery sheet. Seeing my customers pay for a fully inclusive Vector 3 with all options included, they get to choose an extra 4 embroidery files to have put on their container. Alot of customers choose the 'micron' embroidery as they like the design. Some customers go with Micron on one side, M-Series on the other side and then 'V3' on the riser cover and then the skyhook logo on the cutaway pad and the wonderhog logo on the other riser cover. MY Vector 3 also have the wonderhog logo embroided on it, but it is not a wonderhog is it. Who really gives a shit. Some people have Icarus canopies embroided on their container but the container is not a fucking Icarus canopy let alone a canopy. It is all a matter of choice. I had so many customers aksing for micron embroidery and wonderhog embroidery that i then started to ask, would you like the micron embroidery as well or rather than. That is a choice they get to make. Micron, Mseries are both vector 3's. Same container, just a different product number and different size. As for the abusive PM i just got from the micron police, you can not ask me if i offered them sigma embroidery on a vector 3, it makes no sense, it is a complete different container. MSeries and Micron are BOTH Vector 3's. they are NOT different containers. It is not as though one container is a wings and one is a javelin, they are both Vector 3's. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  15. P.S. I may be a gear dealer, but i was replying as a person. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  16. Cheers Simon. This thread has nothing to do with KKrew though. It is about some guy who has taken changing the embroidery on a UPT container to a whole level of changing an Aerodyne Icon to have infinity embroidery? Who really gives a shit anyway. MY customers are happy with their gear, The manufacturers are happy with my company and I am happy with my life. Who ever this person is going on and on and on about me being a gear dealer and responding to his arrogant post that was attacking a mate, it goes in one ear and out the other. I know just as everyone else knows he was not 'just asking a question'. He was being a little bitch taking the piss out of nice guy. If he wants to continue his blah blah blah bullshit, then thats great. Personally, it is Friday and the sun is shinning and I just sold half my company and am off to celebrate a great four years. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  17. actually virgin, i am about to get my rig exactly the same as yours i really like your container mine is going to be a micron though and it is having Mseries branding all over it with a racer logo i shit you not i just cant stand people giving others shit about their decisions when they spend $7000 usd of their hard earned money simon spindlee was one of the most polite customers i have ever had and he does not deserce people trying to make him feel bad cause of embroidery besides, there are probably more mseries containers out their with micron embroidery, wonderhog embroidery, vector 3 embroidery that there is MSeries embroidery who really gives a shit one customer got no embroidery i think i might get the bullys username embroided on my rings cover anyway virgin, you have a sweet rig It was marks rig that made me start paying close attention to the microns loving the colour just a shame your rig looks like the one i am about to order ;) .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  18. Because I wanted to, It looks better
  19. same reason everyone gets the wonderhog logo on their vector-3. Most of my customers go for micron embroidery and vector 3 embroidery and wonderhog embroidery. choice is theirs. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  20. Thank you. Its not that it is so much more expensive outside of the usa, its that people outside of the usa use different currencies. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  21. So that container costs you around $2600 USD max with all options you want. For someone buying that to put a safire 2 139 in it with the hopes of becoming a HP pilot., lets say they do 3000 jumps on it. it works out to about 86 cents per jump. Even though you could probably do 5000 jumps on it if you go from saf 139 down to saf 119, then to cross 129 down to cross 109, then to fx 104, then to fx 99 and then stay on that for a couple of thousand. hell you could probably get 10K jumps out of it. I am not saying all Vector 3's are this financiall viable, i just think this is the perfect size container for someone to buy brand new at that stage as they would never need to buy another container. If you buy a container made for a 190, then in most cases this container will only last you up to 500 jumps if that before you go to sell it. I mean, most people with 500 jumps are already on a 150 or a 135/129. V308 is what I believe to be the most financially viable contianer there is......I am sure some other manufacturers make the same size container that will be just as viable, but i dont believe there is more than two others who are in the same ball park of build quality as the micron. The build quality of the micron is one of a kind and to know that or differ with that you would have had to have at least had a look of an empty brand new micron. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  22. Holy crap - where are you buying your jumpsuit?? I had mine custom-made and it was $200.. You can buy used for as little as $50. not everyone lives in America and buys suits with USD. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  23. Arent you that guy who rides FMX for the Crusty demons? ;) Just spent all day watching videos of you on youtube doinf some sick shit in massive stadiums. You are Steve Gregor right? Welcome to the sport! Bro, Nothing wrong with jumping in motocross gear mate, however I think you might be looking into it a bit too much, as there is nothing wrong with jumping in tshirts and shorts. However, from what I have heard about you and how you are going through your levels, I would suggest you take it seriously and get a decent RW suit, learn the skills and then get a nice freefly suit. If you are taking skydiving serious and you are already use to a lifetime of sponsorship through the world FMX circuit, I would seriosuly consider getting the right gear and doing it the right way. Besides, the discounts you are being offered, dealers cant even get. DeepSeed and KKrew have got your back. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  24. they are both Vector 3's. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  25. neither do i. Have they seriously not changed the velrove yet? If not, change it and the racer would be just as good as the rest of them. I personally got hung up on the door of a cessna from an old racer, probably my fault though, i only had 60 jumps. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
