  1. Demo a VK 96 IMO. If you are a confident flyer with good jump numbers you will be fine. You will see the performance difference but, you will see the wing come alive at 2.5 wl
  2. I would circle back with Scott or the folks at FW. I would say reline the wing with what they know works, and doesn't have a history of knots. After my tension knot, I just had my wing relined. The cost of the reline was far cheaper than losing the wing.
  3. I don't think the lines are 575, maybe just the brake lines. I think the lines are 400, but I could be wrong. Most important part is to make sure the brake lines are not twisted. I have had a tension knot, but it was in brake line. I will include a link. If you get a tension knot make sure you release the opposite toggle, then the knot side. Most times this will release the knot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnZhxspj9Ws
  4. Ok, I will chime in. IMO I would rather see you make a belly band with a RDS pocket. As the wing loading gets higher, XRW ect... the harness gets really sensitive, so reaching back can put your wing in a dive pretty quick. just my thoughts, Rob
  5. There is so much engineering that has gone into the vector 3, to me its hands down the best rig on the market. I think Infinity also has come up with a great Mards system. I have had several different rigs over the years, but never a curv. The vector is made from cordura 500, not cordura 1000, so keep that in mind. The lighter weight material makes the Vector have a more tailored, fitted look and feel. However take care of it, because 1/2 the weight and thickness.
  6. this wing just keeps giving, I love it
  7. This might put it in perspective: I have a VK 96 ps, Airwolf 96 H1, and Wairwolf 96. I have two rigs and the VK is on the bench if that tells you anything.
  8. I have both a VK and a WW. Because the WW is trimmed steeper harness turns develop more energy and power. Once you establish your turn after the first 90* you just sink in the harness and feel the load on the wing. I have not jumped a Leia or a Petra, but the WW is about as much performance as your going to get without going to a hyper wing like a HK2 or Petra.
  9. It's a woman for sure. Typically RDS does not get stuffed in a bra
  10. I had 500 jumps on a TS board. Great board, and I had fun skysurfing but it was always an ordeal getting in and out of the plane.
  11. The virus is only alive 3-4 days on hard surfaces, and items like boxes several hours. Just don't touch your gear for several days. If your still jumping somewhere just wash your hands after you jump/pack, and don't touch your face.
  12. The problem is that your body is not in the rig. Once you put the rig on your body and secure it, it will pull the rig around your body, and this will help.
  13. I had many jumps on a Nova. The design was sound, but the canopy had to be made to the specifications, and at the time that proved to be challenging. So as a result the canopies that were out of spec had problems, and the problems happened close to the ground. Glide path bought by canopy back, then I got a Johnathan. Look that one up.
