    Sigma 340 slider

    the older sliders always gave me better openings. But even after collapsing it after opening, it still flapped around a lot causing wear on the lines right about the links. The new sliders open faster, but don't flap after collapsing saving line wear. I am waiting on revision 3 where it opens like they used to, but it does not flap and wear out my lines.
  3. Spectra ripcord have a bungee in them to help with the floating ripcord if the handle becomes dislodged. The problem is the bungee only lasts a few seasons before it stretches out and isn't really effective anymore. The spectra that is not inside the housing is exposed to sunlight will begin to fade and weaken. I have already had to replace a few spectra ripcord because of wear. I've never had to replace a metal one due to wear. The spectra is easy to replace and basically breaks down into 3 parts. The handle, the pin, and the spectra part. The spectra ones are easy to replace and can be handy if you have a bent pin. Although I have only seen them with the fat upt pin and have never seen a bent upt pin. Basically I think the pros and cons are a wash. The pros are a lot better for upt cause they are cheaper to make.

  7. different rig manufactures use different size drogues. And some manufacturers offer different size drogue for the same rig.

    Smart 220 vs. Optimum 235 reserve

    with that kind of currency, you can never have too much reserve.. I have never been under a reserve wishing I had a smaller one.

    tandem hand mount video

    I just got one of the gloves from quality rigging (advertised in the classifides) and am very happy with the build quality. I have my pc109 in there with a diamond .3 lens and it works perfect.
