  1. Oh!! you got me mr. dse that is what i said. LMAO. Get a damn life. This will be my last post on this site. Sangi send me a pm and ill give you my cell number and ill talk gear with you anytime. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  2. No where did I say that the material used on the voodoo will cause hd premi. Two different instances and opinion of two different people. Rumored hd premi? Yeah I would make that up. LMAO. I told you that I would PM you the persons name if you want and never heard anything from you. I atually recommend voodoos when someone asks about gear, I would jump a voodoo before I would jump a lot of other rigs. You make as if I am out for voodoo I am certainly not. It is people like you who thinks there gear is the best and no one can tell them different that leaves me very irritated. Someone asked for opinions I gave mine, and you ripped it for what ever reason. I am pretty much done posting on this site becasue there are so many know it all a holes on here. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  3. So from my experience and what I have seen with these rigs I am an idiot and my opinion does not mean shit. No where did I say that they were crap and that they are not well known as a great ff rig. I was just telling my opinion and experience and you say it is no good or false. Well maybe I think your opinion sucks, but I am not going to say that becasue that is pretty damn unprofessional and childish. You might want to think about the way you come across and speak to others on here. Take care. Joel don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  4. Most info on different rigs are based on opinion. That is the reason there are so many out there. One may really like this feature or that feature, and then the next guy may hate it. So saying that our opinions don't matter because they are not fact is incomplete if you ask me. my 3 cents.
  5. Well thats my opinion, but I have packed them and many friends have packed them and none of us like to do them. It is well known that wings are a pain to pack. You may like to do them, but many many people would rather not fi they had a choice. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  6. Honestly I am not sure. It happened a while ago don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  7. I do respect your opinion. The only thing I don't really care for is that you are saying that the 2 hd premies did not happen. Evidence, yes that is what I would call it. If you do not believe that it did happen than that is on you. I do not want to name anyone on forums, pm me and I will send you his name. I actually think the voodoo is a solid design outside of what I have already mentioned. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  8. I have seen many voodoos that look like they have way more jumps put on them than they actually have. I think the material just does not stand up or may just appear that it does not stand up as well. That is what I based my opininon on. I also know someone who has well over 13,000 jumps who used to jump a voodoo all the time. He can't even bring himself to sell it now because of two hd premature deployments. I also have another friend who says his is comfy and solid rig, but he feels also that the quality is a step below other manufacter's. Once more that is my opinion, you may not agree, but oh well. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  9. vector 3, I love mine and it is the safest rig on the market in my opinion. Voodoo does not quite have the quality as would vector 3, mirage or infinity. your rigger will hate you if you have a wings. They are not fun to pack. If money is tight I would probably go with an infinity, infinity has high quality and great customer service. Some places have good deals on vector 3's though. Mirage is typically at the top of the price line. They are good, but I would take a vector 3 before that and maybe even an infinity depending on which was more comfortable between the mirage and infinity. Thats my 2 cents. Good luck. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  10. yep I had two tandems chicken out in the same week. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  11. I bout 6'1" bout 235 right now cause I like to drink beer and eat food lol. I like my vector 3 its totally safe for any and all flying and the harness fits good even though it was not sized specifically to me. I would say maybe a 260 sf canopy not sure on the sizing as to what the manufacturers actually make. Pd makes the spectre or strom both have great reviews and should be pretty gentle as far as good openings and soft landings for you. Reserve, always go pd in my opinion, they make good reserves. cypress1 or 2 for aad I have seen many using argus without complaints, but they have not been out near as long as cypress. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  12. I definitely did my time at 182 dz's. Yes the otters are very very nice don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  13. sounds like you did everything right. good job! Just another reason I do not like to jump small aircraft. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  14. you must always always be aware of snag points as a jumper, or fellow jumper, and as a dzo to brief new jumpers on stuff like seen in this video. It is the small stuff that matters. The small things that no one would ever think they could snag their gear on. I have about 350 jumps out of 182's and was always taught to make darn sure that the door was secure up top and not trying to come back down on you. I also noticed he somewhat jammed himself in between the strut and the door almost. That was totally unnecessary, and could be part of the problem. Once again those snag points will screw you. Glad to see he came threw alright. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  15. what would you say are the pros/cons to this system I mentioned I thought it would cut packing time and reduce baglocks. Any truth to that? Your thoughts? Thanks, Joel don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  16. I was always wondering when they would get this product on the market. I was told buy a dealer that they were very high maintenance and he never gave me a solid answer to anyting other than that. I think it would probably cut time on packing and reduce the chance of a bag lock. I would like to see if these take hold. Very cool. edited for spelling don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  17. Thats fucking awesome they do it right up there. congrats to all. Good shit. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  18. SDC is the shit! I worked there last season as a tandeminstructor and they do have the best gear and facilities and aircraft around. Safety is paramount for SDC. The AFP students come out with a lot more knowledge than would an aff student. I would put my life in the hands of any of the instructors there. By the way they jump A LOT there. Hope this helps. Joel don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  19. vector 3, spectre 210, pd reserve, cypress 2. Infinity and mirage also make very nice containers as well. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  20. I would offer them 1200. But you can find newer used gear for within a few hundred of that. I would look for something newer if I were you. What are you wanting to do in the rig? Freefly? Vector 2's are not freefly friendly. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  21. friends don't let friends jump racers. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  22. usually if you have it a bit narrow to start it helps it tighten up in my experience. If found that when it was wide it just did not get quite as tight. Hope it helps don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  23. definitely body position. There are a few things in packing I see people do all the time that is asking for it in my opinion. brake lines being twisted which can cause tension knots. SO many people do that and it is an easy fix. Once you land stow your toggles. That way they do not spin around on your way back to the packing area. The major next one would probably be poor line stows. two things, line stow length should be about three finger widths. I see many with line stows as long as the width of their hands and that screams bag lock to me. Also once you have stowed them neatly Do not just place it into your container and start to close it. Once you are about to start closing take about 20 seconds and make sure that all the stows are seperated and remain that way as you close it. That is also another big bag lock waiting to happen. Sometimes you can get a stray line that goes through another stow which pretty much means bag lock is for sure. Or one stow going through the other it is pretty much the same thing. Last is your pilot chute there are a million ways to do it, but main thing is make sure it is folded neatly that bridal is stowed neatly as well. Many times I see people just wad the bridle into a poorly folded pc a lot. if you fold the pc it badly it could wad up and cause a hard or nearly impossible pull. If the bridle is folded badly it could loop over the pc or knot up and cause you not to be able get it out. Just a few simple things to do to avoid problems. Hope it helps. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  24. yeah I got all my stuff used but, its better than most everything on the market and it was a steal. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
  25. Prices were high even a few years ago. Skydiving is expensive all the way around. When they told me how much they would sell me gear for initially, I laughed at them. I have had so so so many people jump and not continue because there was just no way of pursuing it financially. This will never happen, but it would be cool if they could get there costs to be a bit more affordable. Once again this will never happen, but it would be nice in a perfect world. don't try your bullshit with me!!!
