  1. Google, bro. Most line trim charts are easily accessible in under 30 seconds. http://www.performancedesigns.com/docs/linetrims/SP_150-230LT.pdf
  2. That's why I said get a domed slider if possible. If not then learn to pack it for a slower opening and learn to stall your suit before deployment for lower airspeed at pull time. I've wingsuitted with a Sabre 135, Triathlon 120, Nitron 120, and now my Sabre 120. Both Sabres worked just fine. The Triathlon was a good canopy just kind of boring. And the Nitron worked fine as well but I did get a pretty bad slammer once in a suit due to bottom skin inflation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoB3s5lSDkI
  3. I have a Sabre 120 that I wingsuit with using an intermediate sized suit and I love it. Pros: It is a great canopy that is appropriate for wingsuiting. Usually cheap to come by. And still capable of swooping if you are into that. Cons: Not many really, score a domed slider if possible.
  4. Well, I'll tell ya, I'm sure the Swurve flies very well....... with a more experienced wingsuit jumper flying it. One jump on it was enough to demonstrate for me that it was more performance than I was ready for. I had perfect control of it, for about 2 seconds after I exited the plane. From than point on, it was more like the wingsuit flew me instead of me flying it. The entire flight, including deploying, was the most extreme roller coaster ride I've ever experienced. I have put it in the closet for now and gone back down to a Vulcan. I plan on putting a good 100-200 jumps, or more, on the Vulcan before I contemplate flying the Swurve again. It's not taking up much space in the closet and it will be there when I'm ready for it. On a separate note, I contacted Walt from Redline Aerosports, and he got me into a Vulcan that fits great. I put two flights on it this past weekend and they were both much more stable and in control than I was with the Swurve. I personally thought it was much easier to fly than the smaller suits, I started jumping it at around 20 jumps and it seemed less twitchy and more stable...but everyone is different and that's perfectly ok. One thing you have to realize is you cannot muscle a suit, just kind of lay on top of it and it'll put you where you need to be, when you get rigid they fight back, stay relaxed enough to fart at any given point in time. Another thing, if you have never flown with the stiff performance foam on the leading edges of a suit, it makes a world of difference in agility. My first jump on my custom Swurve which has the foam, vs the rental Swurve which didn't....I exited, overcompensated my correction and rolled one way, then I overcompensated and rolled the opposite way. Here is the link to the video of my first flight. I am quite wobbly due to the fact that I keep giving larger inputs than needed to get what I am wanting since I am not used to the performance of a faster suit. But, 8 months later, and I still love it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9XG9nSgdEc It also has quite a bit of range! I've gone down to a sustained 31mph vertical speed, all the way up to 138mph vertical speed in a dive. This suit is awesome!
  5. [email protected] She's pretty quick with e-mails. Being Friday you might have to wait til Monday, though.
  6. I've had water come out nearly black from containers that didn't even look all that dirty.
  7. I had a canopy with brass grommets on the slider and HMA lines. Within a span of a few jumps, the lines had cut through half of the grommet, and caused my slider to hang up really high. Be careful.
  8. No problem. I am interested in seeing your opinion on how it flies.
  9. I've had my Swurve since February and like it so far. Very stable suit with a lot of range. Mine is all neon green with black stitching.
  10. Don't hit the flaps on the way out and stay tucked in until you see you are clear of the aircraft. It's pretty simple. Don't do anything stupid and don't overthink it. Go out and have fun.
  11. Deployment bag would by far be the most feasible option.
  12. I spent $30 more to get my SkySnatch vs the cost of a brand new equivalent PC through UPT. $30 more for potentially better and more stable openings in my WS? Worth it 100%. I had a couple severe line-twist, which I can not explain better than PC oscillation. The first third of my lines from the canopy was spoon up 2-3 times. I pulled high, but I could not resolve any of those other means than cutting away and landing with my reserve. The price difference of a regular PC and a SkySnatch is about 2 reserve pack job. I'm considering to get one and try it. Where are you getting a $15 reserve pack job? It was $30 more for a SkySnatch vs the same sized bridle/PC from UPT.

  14. Nitro, not Nitron High Performance Research, not Precision Aerodynamics Ah, my bad. I read it in a hurry. I thought they were exact copies of each other though?
