>>I saw video recently of a self-clearing slider-up lineover, and I observed something interesting. At first, the line-over'd canopy seemed pretty tame and maybe landable, turning slowly. But then the jumper released the brakes, and the canopy took off, rotating wildly, faster and faster until the line cleared at almost the last second.
>>My question is, if you don't have a hook-knife (or you drop it) and you have a slider-up line-over, is it better to try and stop the turn using risers/lines and land what you have, or pop the toggles and try and clear it? I realize one should jump with a hook-knife and either way you're in trouble, but I was curious what people think.
