  8. Well where is the picture of this beautiful rig??? Let's see it. Sam Let go of the NUT!!
  9. I have a J3, with a Spectre 170 and a PD 160 R. Before I ordered my Odyssey I sent Aggie a e-mail and told him the sizes of my canopies and a J3 is what he suggested. Everything fits good and looks good too. Sam Let go of the NUT!!

    Ron, But what is there to keep skydivers from keeping their current canopy loaded @ 1:1 for 500 jumps and then go to to a w/l of 2:1?? -Sam- Let go of the NUT!!
