  1. Out of curiosity, are you sure you are deploying the EGs in the proper manner? There is in fact a correct and an incorrect way to pull the pin! If pulled incorrectly it WILL NOT work. The pin should be pulled the side, and not straight up. I have used the EGs quit a bit and have never had an issue with them
  2. Also not all sport reserves are 7 cell (or didn't use to be, not sure about now). I know of at least one reserve that is a 9 cell. The Falcon could be used as a main or a reserve.
  3. I would look into the "Speed" reserve as well. From what I understand it is the smallest packing and has a pretty low price tag. I know a rigger that has two, I think when I need to buy another new reserve, that is the route I'm going to go. I just haven't had the need to get a new one since I found out about them.
  4. If you are S folding, then you are doing a "psycho" pack. If you are truly psycho packing, you do a "pro pack" up to the point where you would roll the tall. Then instead of rolling it, you flip it over and lay it on the ground tail side up. Fold the tail/canopy into a triangle, then fold it again into the width of your bag. Once you have the upside down cigar shape, you ROLL the canopy from the bridle attachment point down towards the slider...... then bag it.
  5. I have just under four thousand and no sport cutaways (due to malfunction) one intentional with a third canopy and 4 tandem cutaways. Had my first tandem cutaway on jump 1,783 The intentional was on jump 500, so I could start the strong tandem course. There is a guy at my home dz that has over 12,000 that has one cutaway on a tandem and that was probably atleast 8-9000 jumps ago
  6. I have had a compression fracture of the L1, burst fracture of the body of the L3, two broken traverse process and broken coccyx. I think the coccyx has actually been broken twice...but not sure. All from two different incidents a few years apart.
  7. I was looking at pelican cases for camera helmet, and equipment. I just couldn't see spending that kind of money. So I went with this same box and got foam for the inside. It is a bit bulkier, but works wonderful for a flattop pro, cannon rebel, extra lenses and batteries and other misc video equipment.
  8. True, it is just a leather hat, but is it not still considered a frap hat? Thats what I've always called it. I have had a couple different versions, and this one is my favorite so far. It is lined and has an audible pocket. It has the goggle strap on the back too. (That is my daughter, Was taking her the day after her 18th B-day)
  9. Deepseed has them as well, but not the standard frap hat. They are just flat leather, no cushions....
  10. I'm a brewer as well...though I haven't made anything in about a year or so. I do love mead and have made a few batches. It is tasty when made right, pretty bad when it isn't!
  11. I'm a welder as well. I've looked at the sun regularly thru a #10 lens, I think a #12 lens would be ideal for watching the eclipse. #14 might almost be to dark. Oh, and I'm right in the path as well......
  12. OK, I have a question!! What is the head phone attached to.....and where is it located????
  13. I had not heard of this canopy before this thread, so I looked it up. From the PD Horizon page: Best of all, the Horizon gives you the ability to upsize as many as two full sizes compared to a non-crossbraced ZP canopy main, meaning you can fit a larger canopy in your existing rig for wingsuit jumps. No need for a new container! So I don't think they are saying you NEED to upsize two sizes to jump it. I think what they are saying, is since it is low bulk, you CAN upsize two sizes and still use the same rig you are using with your "normal" canopy. Watching the promo video, the canopy seems to fly and land well. The pilots were using a two stage flare to land, instead of the one stage you normally see with F-111 canopies.
