    Anyone want world's most boring colored 249 sq ft parachute ? I got one !.Have you ever considered how uncool white or orange reserves are ? Once you land off, it's all dirty, and your peers make fun of you. Avoid that by getting a bounce'n'blend colored canopy ! If you land off and do a bit of rolling in the dirt, you need to do NOTHING - just pick it up, and waltz back onto the DZ like you own the place - no one will even notice that you may have had less than stellar landing. As a bonus, if you happen to land within the legal boundaries of the land owned by McNasty, you can use this to hide until the help arrives. All in all, I am doing you a favor by posting this multi-purpose gem for sale, and I expect nothing, but a measly $400 in return. Yes, apparently chivalry is still not dead ! . If you are a hardcore BASE jumper who sometimes ventures into the less than legal jumps within the NPS (Nazi Park Service) perimeter, this could also make a good stealth wing. Hypothetically speaking, that is... . It's a Raven III which measures 249 sq ft and was previously used as a reserve. Can be used as a main (has a bridle attachment). . Excellent shape Dacron lines DOM 06/1992

    Not impossible. Have you contacted to see if PD is willing to make you a vectran lineset for the original Sabre ? Have you contact Pete Swan to see if he is ? http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?username=PeteS;

    Cookie G4

    What experience do you have with other skydiving full face helmets ? List the "mile long list of crap they need to fix on the G3". Please. What do YOU look for in a helmet ? Do you realize that no product out there is 100% perfect per everyone's expectations ? Are a you by chance a millennial ?
  11. I was going to suggest you search USPS rate, but I am not going to ;(

    G4 Mirage system

    Your credibility is shattered by having single post and by praising a single brand. Most skydivers praise whichever brand there are currently jumping. I've owned most major brand containers out there and my statement is "they all have their quirks".
  13. The article is too genetic to be considered useful. You aren't answering most newb questions.

    help finding parts for my rig

    Main D-bag with three grommets

    What are the other choices ?
  16. Technically - yes. Practically, it's a terrible idea, and you'll damage laminated ribs and will rip off the lines within first 2-3 deployments. That's assuming you mean to deploy from the said container. If you only want to just hook it up without actually packing into the rig, then it's an equally stupid idea, as you will be sitting weird, and won't have anywhere to stash the wing. Basically, start with the horse, then add the cart to the back. Start each sport first, it'll be healthier (unless you die along the way).

    Sewing machine stitch consistency help

    I found that on my 31-15 the presser foot would stick intermittently after I would drop it after a lift. I got into a habit of pulling down after dropping via a the back lever, and that cured my problem with inconsistent pressurize between the foot/feeddogs. Could you be experiencing the same problem ?

    would you feel safe buying a rig from 1998 ??

    a world of difference between stuff made in the 90's. 1991 - not freefly friendly, most likely F111 main 1998 - most likely freefly friendly, most likely a ZP main Give more details. Also please don't assume that EVERYTHING was made in 1998 - each component can have a drastically different DOM.

    Complete rig for noob

    This has been beaten to a pulp, resurrected, and then beaten again. However, in the interests of help, here are some very generic guidelines : Most things made in the past 15 or so years are going to be more or less modern. The exceptions would be some Racer models (this is a completely different topic, but no matter how people preach the Racer to you, the resale value is shit), Dolphins, and some oddball Euro-manufacturers. If you want a hard and fast rule - go with the major manufacturer container, a PD or an Aerodyne reserve, and a PD or an Aerodyne or an Icarus canopy, and your only concern should be gear condition and the price. In fact if you are super AR, just stick with PD made mains and reserves, just be ready to pony up a few extra dollars. That's as generic as I can keep it. good luck, and don't cheap out, or you will be chasing those 1986 Vector rigs with 5 cell Swift reserves until you are blue in a face. PS Oh, and see what people WITH EXPERIENCE say. You are opening up the floodgates for a bunch of low experience jumpers, who have owned 1-2 rigs in their career, to start chiming in and praying to the only manufacturer they have ever dealt with. Hardly an unbiased or a useful opinion.

    New Rig Question

    The rig is not properly described. The reserve is an older Firelite, and I am betting the main is some older F111 canopy, but definitely not a Navigator.
