  1. You obviously spent a lot of time looking at the designs. All I am saying is what my personal experience has been with wearing multiple brands rigs. We can talk about ring placement, geometry and such for days, what matters is actual comfort IMO.
  2. Hey Buddy! Nice to see old folks pop up on here once in a while...
  3. That's why online, and paper shopping only goes so far. I based my comments on actual fit. My 6'4" teammate agrees too...
  4. I jump a Curv now, I have owned and jumped most other brands in the many years I've been around. I've always paid for my gear: never been sponsored. Vector, Jav, Wings, Mirage, even Reflex and others... The Curv is, by far, the most comfortable rig I've put on. By far. From new, to well used several years old now. Every other owner I know says the same thing. I'm 6'2 by the way, so I'm not sure I'd say Curvs arent good for taller folks.
  5. I agree. Regardless of what someone thinks the right thing to do is, Dan's communication has been stellar.
  6. Being concerned is one thing, but the bigger risk when skydiving will be spread from asymtomatic people, not their stuff.
  7. Correct. Eloy, Perris, Snore.. All the "desert" dz's have plenty of dust devils, typically from April to September. And most often when it's dry and not as windy. And if you've only seen 1 canopy collapse, you need to get out more. They happen. The video looks more like a gust or general turbulence... Tho who know..
  8. There really is not enough dirt been slung from the Perrisites or the Snorians! Come on! Lets have it! ;-)

    covid-19

    I've been using John Hopkins (which I trust and does not have the political muzzel the CDC has) for continuous updates. Also Worldmeters, though the data may be less accurate, but has been close to JHU so close enough for me. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
  10. Is that what you were told? Interesting ;-)
  11. If you are on a moving group (angle or tracking) then absolutely, no tracking up or down flightline for the main part of the jump. If you do a solo or 2way, again, absolutely, do not track away along the flightline. Any bigger than that, your priority is to turn 180 from the center of the formation, and track away. Not going up and down flightline becomes almost impossible as 1 person will essentially be along the flightline. This is why having enough separation between groups is critical.
  12. Bytch and I are so old, the Deugrotypes havent survived (PS: had my 30th in Oct 19.. In style, over the pyramids!)
  13. You will not find a decent FS coach that will say to look where you are turning. Always look back to the center for as long as possible. As late a head switch as possible, and then only to look back at the center. If what you are doing is a center turn, you are not going anywhere, you are turning in place. And looking out early (or at all) will make you drift away.
  14. Are you talking freefall, or canopy? Because in freefall (and that's what we've been talking about), you definitely do not want to look where you're going when turning.
  15. In my opinion, the best way to get the skills you need to do well in AFF is serious 4way, with a high quality coach. Get a team together, find a great 4way coach, train in the air and tunnel. And study the SIM. Where are you located?
