    Collapsed Slider Still Noisy?

    Once I got my lookma removable slider. I never looked back. I actually have a katana 120 slider on my crossfire 2 169 . It’s so quick and the rings hit the bottom of the riser 99% of the time. If the hang for a second my R.I. Risers are bulletproof

    Tunnel Rigs and Skills Translating From Sky to Tunnel

    I would take that bet. I personally watched someone with 4000 RW skydives try a tunnel for the first time. He couldent even stay off the mesh in a belly position. Even after a 10 minutes he was having trouble turning points without running into the wall. A wind tunnel is not the sky. They are different in a few ways. A skydiver can get used to it somewhat quickly, but their first fly is going to suck compared to what they do in the sky.

    Tunnel Rigs and Skills Translating From Sky to Tunnel

    Why limit it to free fly ? I’m a belly flyer that started 38 years ago. Only got a couple thousand skydives though. But zero tunnel time. So I say throw me in any tunnel and I can stay in the middle not bounce off the walls and “ suck” Wanna bet ?....
  6. . Damn if I lived that close I’d either have to either get my ratings. And on staff. Or get a second job. Or both.

    Stuffing into centre cells... wtf?

    . Rather than that you could give it to someone. Someone who realizes you don’t know what the hell your talking about

    What's the proper riser length?

    Damn you where is my clicky. Link
  13. I agree and that’s soooo sad. Hand cam is a good addition to outside video. But anyone who says handcam is just as good as outside video. Is lying thru their teeth. And I will tell them that to their face.

    good DZ tent?

    Oh I’m definitely not saying you have to buy high end everything I suggested can be had at Walmart for $300 or less. I have had really good luck. With their ozark trail 30 second set up tents. I still say some sort of shade canopy that you can stand up straight under and a comfortable chair makes all the difference in the world. A shade canopy can be as simple and cheap as a length of rope a couple of trees and a $20 tarp. I will also say you will never regret investing in good tent stakes. The flimsy coat hanger size ones that come with the tent are worse than useless

    good DZ tent?

    This is in my wheelhouse. Lots of time in grade. My suggestions are get a bigger tent. For me a 4 man tent fits a queen size air mattress with room for a couple storage totes inside. Also you will have a much more comfortable camp. If you also get one of the 10 by 10 or 12 by 12 ez up type shade canopy’s academy sports sells a good model for under $100 bucks. Got one on sale last year for $69.99 tuck the entrance of the tent into the edge of the shade canopy attach a tarp to the canopy with bungee balls bring it over your tent. You’ll appreciate having and area to stand up and walk around. And keeping the entrance dry. Invest in the most comfortable camp chair you can find. I recommend the Coleman max 300 lb rated chair.

  19. So if I come to the boogie I pay full price jump? But if I bring a female her jumps are half off? I was under the impression that discrimination based solely on sex was illegal.

    Hinged knee braces?

    I had ACL surgery in 1993 I’ve used custom hinged knee braces non-hinged cheap knee sleeves and the pharmacy ace brand hinged braces I really couldn’t tell the difference between the high dollar ones and the cheaper version as long as it stabilizes your knee and you can get it adjusted and tightened up. But I have an intact meniscus my problem is just side loading on my ACL ligament

    St Patty’s Fitzgerald wingsuit peeps

    I need a new bigger suit bad. But I’m a poor boy. Plus it’s way to late to get one at this point. If someone has one giant enough to fit me I’d be super shocked and stoked
