I'm totally new, as in, I haven't even begun AFF yet, so maybe this concern is a bit unfounded. But I have noticed from most of the jumpers with a D next to their name that proper pack jobs can do a world of good for ensuring a soft opening.
Am I wrong to think that the majority of issues people can encounter with the opening are typically addressed with a correct pack job? I see a lot of people saying that they "trash pack" or just wad up and go, and that seems like toying with chance. I don't want to discount any of the serious injuries or fatalities that occur, especially not with the veterans of the sport; but, in your opinion would most of those killed or serious hurt from hard openings be here today if their canopy was packed properly?
