  1. I've been out of the game a few years but George has been nothing but a pleasure to work with when I had a problem. He went above and beyond for me. I would buy again in a heartbeat. "GOT LEAD?"
  2. I havent jumped in 3 yrs but keep my gear around for when the bug bites me again. As said before, TSO23b get you past the harness weight limits. Again I have been out of the sport for a few years but I have jumped being as heavy as 375lbs out the door. I presently own a Vector custom built rig, Precision/Icarus 330 (tandem canopy) and a Strong Mighty Mak (337.5) reserve. I am not one to take no for an answer hence the "tandem" canopies that I used to jump. If you find yourself in a situation where "they" will not let you jump because of gear, maybe I could help ya out. email [email protected] since I am not on this site all that often. good luck! "GOT LEAD?"
  3. Thanks for the responses, I would also think the "waiver" should cover my butt. If any DZ is interested I would indeed be willing to rent out the rig. I should still have all the TSO and letters and tests done on the gear certified to 400+ lbs on the reserve. Actually the harness is built HEAVIER then a tandem. Type this and that webbing versus this and that webbing......been outta the game so long I have forgot alot of the terminolgy and what not. "GOT LEAD?"
  4. I have been out of the game for a lil over two years now. So, HI everyone that knows me! Anyhow. I have my rig that has been sitting for a few years and it just seems like a waste letting it sit and not be used. I have had several questions from big gys asking me questions about big boy rigs and what not. So I have been thinking about renting out my rig so the big boys can get in the air. My question is this: What kind of liability issues could I get myself into by renting it out? Specs: Vector 3 PA Tandem 330 Strong Mighty Mak 335 reserve Vigil The only thing I would need to add is the secondary pilot chute handle. What you guys think? "GOT LEAD?"
  5. im not a pusyy and I am not stupid either. The rig is staying home on this one "GOT LEAD?"
  6. if im being stupid I will the rig at home. Maybe I should rethink the whole idea of the Hawaii thing. "GOT LEAD?"
  7. Tell me more, of course wind is a good thing on the north shore. Outs could be an issue, but how different can it be? "GOT LEAD?"
  8. Well kinda. I am leaving for Hawaii tomorrow, and its the one place I BEG to jump. I need a repack and since it has basically been one year since my last jump, I need a repack and a coach for this one, anyone know the Hawaii peeps? "GOT LEAD?"
  9. Chad, UPT will build that rig for anyone (as far as I know). Basically it is a SOV (special operations Vector) which is a V3 but the secondary riser covers and trulock toggles are not options on it. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference from looking at it. My recomendation is to ask them to retro fit the magnet covers though. My rigger used the magnets for the Sigma and it has worked wonderfully. If I remember correctly they only charged me $200 more than a V3. The Harness AND risers are heavier than a tandem, and it fits wonderfully. The only beef if you want to call it that is, the reserve container is for a 300ish (335 in mine so a tad snug) and the main container is designed for the Silloutte 360 (330 in mine tad loose). Other than that I LOVE it. "GOT LEAD?"
  10. I for the first time am 100% comfortable in my gear. Harness/container has the b TSO and it states "limited only to the reserves maximum load" and my reserves has a 444lbs max limit on it. The main is 525lbs. My container is actually built heavier than a tandem. chad you know know what I am using and let me tell you a rig under 40lbs is so much nicer than the XX stuff. "GOT LEAD?"
  11. I was thinking of driving up to Vegas tonight andget a few jumps in. I looked at my riggy and I need a repack.....yeah leave it to me to wait til the last minute. I am south of Fresno so any riggers between here and Mesquite that could do it this afternoon (in Cali) or tomorrow morning in NV would be like heaven! Of course I am willing to pay a bit more and a bottle of your choice! Help a brotha out! "GOT LEAD?"
  12. Thanks for posting the ugliest pic of me ever.....IDIOT! "GOT LEAD?"
  13. Not knowing where you are from and not reading all the posts. Come to Cali and I will get you in the air hell or high water. "GOT LEAD?"
  14. I plan on taking off from work early and camping out for the night. Anyone between Fresno and there need a ride by chance? "GOT LEAD?"
  15. Exactly the opposite of what Zapco does. They for the most part are a sound quality company, which is what my car is all about. Pretty awesome when you actually can have the chance to sit in a true car set up for quality and not volume. "GOT LEAD?"
  16. I dont know if anyone here is into car audio or not but I have been offered sponsorship by Zapco and to join their team. Team Zapco. For those that dont know, Zapco is one of the best if not the best brands available and pricey as hell but well worth it. This kind of offer is unheard of and I am one happy camper right now! Another money pit other than skydiving!!!!! (that sux but hell yeah!) "GOT LEAD?"
  17. Not to sound like too much of a noob but are the winds a problem in Byron, for jumping that is. "GOT LEAD?"
  18. ME, Jumbo, and Anvilbrother all are 300lbs plus and jump. It aint easy but it is possible. 2 of us jumped at Gold Coast for AFF on a MT1-XX rig (military). Unfortunatley I do not have my old rig anymore otherwise it would be up for rent for the bigboys. 370 main and 335 reserve in that one, 370lbs on the main anf 444lbs on the reserve is what it was rated at. My current rig is technically a SOV Vector (military) but it is extremely hard to tell from a Vector 3 unless you know what your looking for. It is actually built heavier than a tandem, and I think that was more for Relative Workshop (UPT) to cover there butts. So with that it is possible and yes all three of us need to lose some weight (38lbs down for me already...go me!) "GOT LEAD?"
  19. I woulsd assume since it is a BOOGIE that tenting it is ok? Am I correct? "GOT LEAD?"
  20. I am going to try and make it....I have been into the "new dz" mood for a awhile now. "GOT LEAD?"
  21. Not to take away from the original post, but no way I can reach the link. Heck my slider usually hangs out above the links about 4-5 inches and I can't reach it unless I grab a bunch of rear riser with one hand to be able to reach it. I will admit a 330 canopy is a mofo to move with front risers and I have yet to need to use them. "GOT LEAD?"
  22. I will admit I can do pullups (not, but can't get enough of a grip on a front riser to move it more than an inch or two. But thats me. "GOT LEAD?"
  23. Sorry certain things get under my skin, and I hadn'e had my cup of coffee this morning. Thought it is better to delete than start a bitch. sorry for my attitude. "GOT LEAD?"
