  1. The old days are not gone. It is just that those ( That) same hysteria monger was at it then hard core and still at it now. Just like pollution, never going away. Back then it was tandem flybys now the angle is tail strikes with emphasis on numerous near strikes. Each topic involves the ear of one BOD member or more. Don't feed the monster. To answer your question Tony suits is better. You don't have to wait a year for their biggest suit and they are not trying to destroy wingsuiting in America with regulation.
  2. I know the WSI you speak of. I have flown with him. I know he posted in this forum years ago ( 03) about how close he gets to canopies. I know he changed his puplic opinion on this same subject during a very similar thread back on 09. That one not so innocent. That one was designed to gather dirt not opinions. There was some hysteria about a a tandem strike " out west" that was not substantiated and may have been a tandem collapse with no contact. Or it could have been a tandem scare with a 1/4 mile separation between tandem and wingsuit. Both the thread and hysteria were started by..... you guessed it. Non of this is doing the forum any good. If you want jollys go read the old posts they're a hoot.
  3. Sammy stop poking a stick at the hysteria mongers.
  4. Stop feeling threatened as an OVER Zealous factory wingsuit instructor. Plenty of people can do it and do it well. FIFY, Thank me later
  5. I rarely if ever land off in my wings suit. But do it quite freaquently during CRW, chasing cut away mains, freebags and landing with the victim to see if they are ok. I have a circle k pro rating twice over. Should I stop?
  6. Awesome! Just a quick question then in regards to why the questionaire was put forth here on, which has limited participation by the whole wingsuiting community. Versus sending the questionaire out to all members of the USPA, say like in the form of an email. And is it still possible to do that? No one can say they were not aware, or were not notified. Maybe even include links to the compelling data presented to the sub-committee. That way all individuals can participate in the questionaire and if they want by contacting their representative BOD directly. The current method might leave some to believe things are happening behind closed doors,without their knowledge and involvement. The burden of the final vote would still fall on the entire BOD but they would have the benefit of a broader dialogue.
  7. I never forget my leg straps. and lately its impossible anytime I put on a wingsuit some Qualified WSI tries to grab my Crotch. Qualified at what? Ass Banditry?
  8. Because his instructor didn't do that. You were in the room when his instructor didn't tell him to put his leg straps on? No one ever told me, they did tell me once a decade not to forget. A decade ago. I can't remember what was breakfast yesturday. I'm doomed to forget a decade old reminder about some gear thing or other.
  9. Dan failed Dan. He was told no and then drove across an entire state instructor shopping. An entire state! If somebody of low experience calls Ralph for a deal on equiptment that they shouldn't have and they know it then they pile in it is not Ralphs fault.
  10. We don't teach wuffos to wingsuit,...... or do CRW or do VFS. Your point is not exact.
  11. How do you know he is not a prodigy.... Bazinga!
  12. Because you said I'll never guess I'm going to pick the improbable as I've never been to Z hills. Jeff K? If My answer is right then let's not forget he was new then. I think he would be afraid I would ridicule him If he did go to the WSI side. I know lots of people have a boner for him. I don't. I alright with him. He flys 10 times better than any factory WSI and does not walk around telling us were all fucked up. Mad props for that.
  13. I need WSI like I need Hole in my canopy.
  14. How can you tell who is a WSI.... Oh don't worry he'll tell YOU! Tell how much experience he has and how fucked up everybody else is and a wonder were not dead along time ago. Tell you about his near death malfunction after a breakfire on a sabre 2 190 @ 5000ft. OMG. Flat spinsville.
  15. Quoteand right back to name calling. wingsuiting will die a slow painful death if we continue down this path.[/reply Hey your killin me now.
  16. What color do you want your Phoenix-fly destroyed wingsuiting T-shirt in. I'm going to have a bunch printed and sell them as more and more DZ s ban us.
  17. Are you dense? I'm not talking about Tony. When I grow up I Wanna be Tony. I named my 3 daughters after Toni. Not only does he make the best suits ever. The ones that hold records. Do XRW, long distance record RW, highest altitude RW. Base speed race record RW. He does his own stunts. Flys a man's canopy with a wingsuit ( not recommending that you girly men try what Tony does). He sews his own suits then goes out and rocks them. One day I might buy one. So he is too busy to be pestering my BOD with crap Keep up the good work Tony, you rock!
  18. Corporate attacks. Field rep. Represents the brand whether you like it or not. Boss of training division. Fired all of the trainers a few years ago until they could recertify under the new standard. Now he wants to fire people that never worked there. I type this with little to no hate measurable with modern technology.
  19. Opinion denied! I'm right. See jarnos post above.
  20. I see spot is an easy target because he dares say the things that several people dont want to hear. But sticking your head in the sand isnt the answer either. Agreed post the videos of his presentations to our board of directors on the phoenix-fly website right next to the videos of Robi & friends carveing sick lines down the big mountain.
  21. The facts are the facts. It is not an attack. BTW You are so over wingsuitets remember?
  22. It's because he is Too close to the tail.
