  1. [url] Any thoughts about it ?
  2. Dear all, Thanks for your replies I will work on it and will let you know the outcome. Raymon
  3. Hello, We are jumping at our dropzone with Sigma harnesses and almost all of the times we experience that after opening the chest strap of the passenger is close to the chin / throat. We think that somehow they are slipping, because we think we fit them correctly (following the guidelines of the manual). Attached you find some pictures from a handcam video of a random jump with a sigma harness (the video is not made at our club, so used it from youtube) showing the "problem" Picture 1 is just after exit and it seems that this guy is fit properly (chest strap there where it should together with the straps on his shoulder, against the shoulder bone) Picture 2 is after opening you can clearly see that the straps which were against his shoulder bone in freefall are now at the height of his ears, and the chest strap is near his throat. Does anybody have any idea what causes this and how it can be solved. Looking forward to your replies and suggestions. Raymon
  4. Can anyone of you tell me where i can buy the side-spin video. Do know it exists but tried to find it on the internet (als checked the Strong website) but i am not able to find it. And is it also available on DVD - PAL version Thanks in advance
  5. Dear Scarface, In regards to your question. I do not know which brand you have to pick.. both are ok.. (im jumping with the Techno 155 , had one reserve without any problems). What i do know is that im a little bit concerned about your downsizing. Do not know which parachute you are jumping now, but with 15 jumps and your weight (87 kos) i think your are downsizing too much and to quick. What is your reason for jumping so small ?? This is the same question which i have for your reserve ... Picture this .... 1st jump with your new gear... spinning mall with your 170 (damn that goes fast !! ) you pull your reserve which is even smaller (143 sq ft) so you just downsized in one jump from you student canopy to 170 to 143 sqft !!! I would reccomend bigger parachutes !!! My instructor told me once (a very long time ago ) : Jumping is not difficult, but to continue jumping thats difficult.... Wish you a lot of safe jumps with a wisely chosen main and reserve parachute.. Kindest regards, Raymon
