  1. Also consider the Icarus Reserve 169 as that would fit in the V348 as that also packs a bit smaller. So my mistake, I forgot about the Icarus 169 reserve. that would be ideal for you if you want to buy the more viable V348. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  2. Just ask your instructor as well about the PDR 160 Only ever take advice from these forums once you have your instructor agree that advice is right as every jumper behind a keybpard including myself has a different opion. It is only your instructor who knows you though. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  3. What 170 reserve are you talking about? PD, Aerodyne or Tempo do not make a 170. Tempo make a 178, Smart make a 175 and PD make a 176. 160 PD will probably be the right reserve for you. remember a reserve is seven cells and made to be alot more doscile. IM willing to bet your instructor will have said to you go find a 170 reserve and 170 main, but he was not thinking correctly. If you go back and ask about a 160 reserve he will give you the green light. I guess this because of the combination you have been given the go ahead to look for. So do check with him, but, PD make a 176 and Aerodyne make a 175 which actually packs larger than a PD reserve. I sell alot of UPT containers and aerodyne products and the 348 will be very good for you. Have you spoken to your instructor about jumping a PD 160 reserve. most of my customers who are new at the sports and weigh around 65 kgs-70kgs will go for the PD160 reseerve. You should see if your instructor says this will be ok for you, i am sure it will if they have told you to find a container made for a 170 with movement down to a 150 in the near future. If you want to send me an email at UPT and myself could work with you on your order as they do not sell direct to the public but they will help you with your requirements. Only say this because it is obvious you do not have a dealer helping you out .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  4. Metting Eli was a honour. I was in awe of meeting the flyboyz. First video I ever watched on my first day ever at a dropzone. These guys gave me the vision of my dream. Metting them and hanging with them and learning from them was the most special moments of my skydiving to date. Watching them on my first day to sitting on a couch with them a couple of years later was an amazing moment for me from new Zealand a country far away from those amazing videos they made for the world. We lost who I would call one of the top five inspirations this sport has had. For his friends out there, I am so sorry for your loss. This will undoubtebly be one of the hardest losses the sport has and will ever take. To his family, you don't need us in these forums to tell you how great Eli was, you guys loved and shared his love with him. I don't prey, buy you guys will be in my thoughts for a long time to come and Eli will always be remembered by me as pop star and the dream of the sport I breath. This is a devestating loss. Eli is the guy who put 'cool' into skydiving. Blue Skies Eli. Thank you for the Flyboyz. Thank you for the dream. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  5. I wish I had known it was username. You have always seemed like a valuable contributor to this website. Shame it was not made known it was you earlier. Glad you have come here to defend yourself. If I was you, I would be seriously fucked off with the accusations a Gear dealer has made on the forums. I had a customer rip me off, I came to the forums and asked what people thought I should do, Noway did i think it would be appropriate to put his anem on a public forum. My website yes, but a public forum, no way. Has this been a 'happy ending' for you Will? IM not taking sides, I just want to hear what you have to say as you have been labelled a thief .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  6. If likestojump says it fits, then it fits. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  7. Thank you. But you need to understand that we watchers can not come to our own conclusion with only half the information. When being told a story you need to be told the ending to know the true story, otherwise it is just guess work. This is why we ask for you to explain what the happy outcome was. You cant make an opinion on a person as you wanted us to by posting the thread title the way you did, without knowing how it was resolved. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  8. You should of said that then. You dont just say everything you have said and had people vouch for you and stick up for you and the come back with a little post saying it is a happy ending. You explain what happenedas you have had 2000 people waatching this thread. Serg, What are you going on about me not having enough sleep? What has that got to do with this forum? Pretty sure you only know about my sleeping pattern from personal conversations on the telephone. I dont think commenting on that in these public forums is very cool at all. All I did was ask a question and in return have had a few emails form others saying thank you for asking it. So the seller is still someone that is a fraudster and a conman as that is what this entire thread has applied and if you have read the thread you will notice that this is the impression you have let people believe....... So is this the case or not? Do we all have to stay away from dealings with person. Do we have to watch out for his scams as you have told us all to? Im glad you got your canopy but you need to know how it looks from an outsiders point, and that is what my question was, and I know and like you Serg. So take it for what it is, not as a personal attack. As far as everyone who has ever looked in the gear forums is concerned is that Will is a scammer. Is this the case? if it is not, then you need to clear it up and not just say it is a happy ending. I know you willargue back with me on this but thats because you dont care for my opinion on an outsider point of view and what you have made me think. Serg, Please dont comment on our personal business phone calls in the public forums. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  9. Wow, this guy has just been called a thief, had all his emails shared with the world and now there is a happy ending? HEe and his friends must be furiously pissed off with you serg. That is some serious shit to post and have 2000+ people read and make opinions and then just to say happy ending over it all. I bet it aint happy for him. I hope you think twice before doing this again to someone as you are a parachute distributor and this is part of business. YOu dont fuck peoples names over like that in a public forum. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  10. Love the beast was filmed in Australia, not New Zealand. Eric Bana is ozzie. But yes, I did watch it. I enjoyed that also. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  11. I enjoyed it. Even though it is fiction, it is very similar to the story of radio hauraki in new zealand. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  12. ouch! .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  13. I was thinking maybe a Pink ribbon might look good on it. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  14. Hmmmm, didnt turn out how i wanted it to. my bad i suppose. Maybe i can join a gay bikie gang and fit in. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  15. We roasted marshmallows. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  16. Remember that Chart is for the Aerodyne range. And aerodyne canopies, except the ZPX pack larger than other canopies of the same size. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  17. Alaister, you are not going to want to put a 170 pilot in the icon I7. Not sure but you may be able to put a 170 sabre or safire in it as the pilot 170 packs a bit bigger as it is. Why dont you take me up on the offer I gave you when you sold me your rig? .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  18. Fair enough. Was not considering that option. Probably cause my back is fucked and i dont pack. Good point though. In no way am I saying dont buy a ZPX, I spend 6 figures a year buying aerodyne products and fully support them, I was only asking. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  19. So would a normal Pilot 188 ZP would fit in your container? how loose or tight was the sabre 2? Out of curiosity, Why do you want to buy a ZPX if you dont need it? Seems like an extra $160-$200 you dont need to spend if you ask me. To be totally honest with you, I am not sure a Pilot 188 zpx would fit very weel in your container, it may be a tad too small. My first ZPX customer only received their canopies about a month ago so I dont have any experience with the ZPX material but you want to make sure a 188zpx will fit and fit safely. I would suggest you ask a rigger but they would not know as they would not have much experience with them yet. Then i would suggest you ask a manufacturer that built the container, but again their standard responses from me lately have been they dont know as of yet. Unless of course you jump a icon container. What container do you have and what size is the container. You cant really determine it based on a F1-11 canopy in it at the moment or a sabre 2 210 as they both pack very differently depending on age etc and also because all three materials are different. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  20. Just make sure the ZPX will fit in your container. remember the main thing about the zpx is it packs smaller. remember at the same time that this means it only packs the same size at ICarus and PD canopies as the original Pilot canopy packed larger than them .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  21. Sacha, Your emails are bouncing for some reason and I need you to contact me in regards to the Rig you have on order. I accidentally left it in the fire place and the fire started all on its own. Please get in touch .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  22. All his gear was so brand new and that did look like queenstow. I thought it looked like he was protecting his camera gear so much that he forgot to protect his rig. If he is from NZ then he will be use to jumping out of cessnas. I have to wonder how many jumps he had with all that gear matching 100% and looking so new. Should he have had camera gear on his head if he cant look after his gear that saves his life? I am only asking. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  23. Matter are just flat out right now. Very busy. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
  24. Serg says he got ripped off, then he got ripped off. He would not have posted this thread lightly. Serg saying he got ripped off is like a manufacturer saying to me that I have an invoice to pay. So now that we have established he got ripped off....... I have a 35% off micron voucher with 25% off options and 30% off a Aerodyne main canopy and 25% off a Aerodyne reserve canopy for anyone who gets the fucker to pay up or send the main canopy to him. EDIT: this is no way reflects that I do not think Serg is a Prick. He is still a prick, just an honest prick. .Karnage Krew Gear Store .

    Sorry I didnt really think of it as a spoiler and wanted people to see it is worth watching. The second show was good. It can only get better. These guys are starting to feel like it is reality to them. In a few weeks they will be way beyond an experiment .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
