  14. My thoughts are if it doesn't look like it's instantly resolvable then get off it, You'll know this by the first couple of rotations (if that!), you don't have long to sort it and if you make the wrong call by trying different techniques then you are putting yourself in a more dangerous situation. There are already enough incidents from people fighting canopies they should have got off and/or cutting away low. A guy was recently very lucky at Empuria and posted his video on Facebook, He doesn't appear to be aware of just how lucky he was https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151669774522692 -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  16. I did 1200 jumps with Vectran 750 JVX lines on my VX84 I had to get a bigger slider as the end cells were inflating first and giving me off heading openings, There was a noticeable improvement in the performance -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    Earphones????

    I used to have some Shure Sound Isolating earphones when I worked at Bodyflight, they go deep into your ear like an ear plug and the sound quality is amazing -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
  18. Do you have a JVX with or without stabilisers? Is it a normal slider or RDS slider? How do you pack it now? Nose? Slider? Tail? S-Folds? Is it turning or opening odd? End cells first -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

  24. No it's an actual canopy, made by Firebird, Maybe the same guy that chose the name 'Undertaker', was the person that chose the companies original name 'Performance Variable' -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
  25. Is it just me, or is "Undertaker" a really bad name for a swooping canopy? -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
