    Ares II or Viso II+

    Yes, it does, and I pull at exactly 3,525 feet ha ha

    Ares II or Viso II+

    I upgraded from the Viso II to the Ares II and it was totally worth it. The digits are so much larger in a container that's almost the same size. Plus, I sold the Viso for $250 to a new skydiver who was happy to get the deal-so worked out for both of us.

    Who is Skydive Spaceland?

    I would like more info on this as well. I jumped at the Clewiston, FL location a year ago and everything seemed pretty good-Awesome Super Caravan, Good A-license training program (which I did there), etc. Their jump prices are a little high but they do offer an unlimited jump block for a year, which is good at all their locations...
  4. Just wondering if most people carry on their rig on check it down below. This would be for travel within the U.S.A. Also, do you "disguise" your rig in a bag or rig sleeve? Do you keep your hook knife in the pocket if carry-on? Thanks

    Solo II Audible Altimeter

    Not saying this is a scam but these prices seem way too low to be real. That Solo II used sells for around $140.... If real, then these are great deals

    Two dropzones review for AFF

    I suggest going to Lake Elsinore. Smaller than Perris and lots of friendly people-As I discovered when I went there as a newbie with 40 jumps.

    Abnormal Closing Loop Wear?

    Just buying the regular closing loops-Made of paracord-type material?

    Abnormal Closing Loop Wear?

    Showed it to the rigger and she said it's because it's packed in so tight. The interesting thing is that Mirage recommended on the phone to me that very container with the exact canopy I bought (a Pulse 190 [low-bulk] in a Mirage G4 M5 - 1/2... I will be downsizing to a 170 pretty soon so that should fit better.

    Abnormal Closing Loop Wear?

    Thanks everybody for the great suggenstions! I didn't even consider checking the grommet or pin for burs. I'll do that, maybe shorten the loop, and show it to the rigger if it continues.
  13. (Newer jumper here) - Is it normal to wear through closing loops every 15-20 jumps? I'm running the recommended Pulse 190 on an almost-new Mirage G4 M5-1/2. I've been having it packed by a very experienced packer and she's had to change the loop twice in about 30 jumps-The last one broke in her hands as she was closing it. It doesn't seem overly tight but the pin does stick up from the container somewhat. Thanks for any advice.

    San Diego 9/12-9/18

    I'd recommend Skydive Elsinore (straight up the 15 freeway-about 55 minutes). I used to go to Skydive San Diego (which is closer) but they now mostly cater to tandems. Also, Elsinore has great load organizing, tons of fun jumpers in all disciplines, and plenty of planes running everyday.

    Sky Down Skydiving

    I was there jumping for two weeks while visiting relatives in Boise. I really liked this place and got to jump 5-6 days. They have a twin Cessna 206 but I only jumped out of the supercharged Cessna 182 (which is very fast). Everybody was super friendly and helped me out with my packing skills. They were also offering the canopy course I needed while I was there so got that done. You might have to wait around a little to fill up the 182 but I did get up to 5 jumps a day. A great little place in the Boise area-Highly Recommend!
