    Lifespan of sail

    Funny enough, I did ask. The coating of sail doesn’t go away, it will always be more rigid than ZP. Also note that ZP gets softer as time goes on but the coating on it doesn’t flake away. I’m not flying a peregrine, but I do have a petra with approx 350 jumps on it and there is no ‘flaking’. However, getting back to hybrid valkyries, the hybrid will always outperform regular zp.

    Lifespan of sail

    Thanks for the response. This is quite interesting, I don’t remember PD saying anything like this. I’ll have to put it to the test. My hybrid valk has approx 200-250 jumps now and the ribs are not showing any sign of deterioration.

    Lifespan of sail

    Hey man, got 2 questions for you. 1. Will sail ribs on a hybrid valkyrie just loose the coating and become just like a normal Valkyrie? If so I guess this process would be accelerated...like quicker than 300 jumps? 2. What is the best way to store/keep full sail wings? Keeping it loose in a garbage bag? Thanks

    Customers who order gear and dont pay

    I just hope you didn't give him the gear! In my oppinion, there will always be people like this so the best way to make a deal is to have the upper hand. Dude doesn't reply with the cash after the 1st time, sorry, your order is put on hold until you show me the money. If the manufacturer decides to continue manufacturing it is ciompletely their fault. And on orders like harnesses, the deposit should be at least 50%.
