  1. I may have worded my OP bad, but I used one hand to flare with both toggles. I was able to get about 1/2 to 2/3 of a flare, and land safely.
  2. Thank you for your input. How do you feel about shoulder braces while jumping, when i'm healed. Or something to give a little more support to that shoulder. Worst comes to worst.. Ill have to pull from my left I guess. Not giving up this sport.
  3. Thank you for all of the information. I'm saving that picture and i'll give it a try shortly when the Dr. says okay :)
  4. I have a pretty scrawny build. Im 6ft, 145lbs. Thin and tall. I have very little muscle, and that was my first dislocation. I see a orthopedic specialist next week.
  5. Hello Dropzone! I recently started my AFF courses on Monday, and on Wednesday I did jump 2 & 3. During jump 3, I reached back to deploy my parachute, and my shoulder decided to pop out of it's joint. I was able to deploy it, but I had twists that I was able to resolve as well. Ended up landing half-flare with one hand and went to the ER. After I have recovered, I plan on jumping again. Is there any advice that someone could give me to prevent that happening again? A different form to pull? I plan on hitting the gym a lot more for shoulders as well. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!!
