  1. Hi Jerry, 1. Less than 1% 2. Yes I have 3. If they are jumpers as well - Yes You should make that a poll. And don't forget to include the boobs option "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  2. I wouldn't even think about it I hope this helps "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  3. So are you paying royalties to bill booth for borrowing his idea? His idea for what? MARD? "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen

  5. I'm not in their kitchen so I don't know. Perhaps you know more. But the fact that Vortex 2 is the cheapest TSO'd rig out there and they are the only one (to my knowledge) to use this hardware, makes me think the cheapest price was the leading reason. Once again...It's just a guess! "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  6. As a TSO holder they are responsible for everything that goes in their products. The early Vortex 2 were made with Wichard hardware. Some years ago PS started using DSF hardware. I don't know why they changed the supplier, but I'll put my money on "cheaper price". And this is how it goes!

  7. So Vigil is on the market since 2003 and already has 7 SB's regarding the cutter. In average a new SB every 1.7 years! It's a bit high for my taste! "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  8. Too many people abused that stellar customer service. No more freebies from those guys. "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen

  10. I guess it was a typo. Now it's fixed "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  11. It's a trademark kinda thing. You fly your reserve and everybody at the DZ know that it's another NANO save! For the same reason Optimums are always orange, and the Smart has a big label on the front side of the bottom center cell. Purely a marketing thing.

  12. If the harness was made for a much smaller person, you should know that the yoke size can't be resized . Or it can, but it will cost you as much as a new rig. "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  13. If my memory is correct, unless it's Talka 3, ground it! "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen

  16. A wise guy once told me that begging for forgiveness works better than asking for permission! That worked fine for me for the last 15 or so years. Something to think about for the next time! At the last PIA symposium a friend told me that BPA actually stands for " Ban Parachuting Altogether" "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
  17. Not serious enough for a lawsuit .... "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen

  22. Never heard of 7.62X54 being called NATO To answer your question, that would be an RPG-7 and anything smaller in caliber the army could offer
  23. I think that skydiving gear in France is government regulated. I could be wrong "My belief is that once the doctor whacks you on the butt, all guarantees are off" Jerry Baumchen
