    How to measure trim

    i am no rigger but my initial thought is if all your lines are in trim, then the steepness should be in trim aswell.

    arms went numb

    Yes it happened on one of my first jumps, it was a tandem. The harness was to tight especially where it comes over your shoulders in the front. This is more then likely the same that happened to you, The bright side is this will not happen in your own rig, they are more comfortable

    Saw my first intentionally damaged rig

    hey i was actually thinking of posting a related question so i will put it here. If someone did mess with your rig, and it was found out. Would the police consider that something along the lines of attempted murder???? seeing as you screwed with a life saving device. just curious.

    Malfunction Inqury

    well you only have two options that i see, cutaway and straight to reserve or land using your rears. while lots of people have cutaway as low as 1000 feet, i probably would not. If i was in that situation, i would keep my canopy and ride the rears on landing with a good plf. This is the reason for your control checks after the canopy has opened and you still have plenty of altitude for a cutaway. Practice flares, turns..inspect your canopy.
