Wanted to find other people's takes on how they feel about "the mains of old" i.e. Sabre 1 and 2, Xfire 1 and 2, Stiletto and other popular mains released in the late 90's and early 00's versus new mains that have been released in the last 0 to 5years. Things like...in general do the newer class of mains have harder or softer openings/longer or shorter openings, steeper or more shallow trim, longer or shorter recovery. Let's exclude crossbraced for the moment and student canopies. Just trying to see which way the manufacturers are moving compared to older style mains.
Just curious what others are charging your DZO for maintenance on their Sigmas. I'm trying to catch up with the times! I.e..... Kill line replacement Secondary replacement Install new main, inspect and pack Feel free to include parts cost if you make your own kill lines All I know is that UPT charges 37 bucks for kill line and $37 for secondaries...an old price list from 2018 shows they charg: $ 55 incl parts to do kill line and same thing for secondary ripcords..$55 They have main canopy assembly/inspect @ $55 or $65 for assemble/inspectt/pack Have no reason to believe they haven't raised the prices because they no longer list them on the website. Does anybody know what they are charging als?
