    Meat and 2 veg.

    you also need to think of the landing. if you dont have a perfect stand up you might fuck your shit up pretty bad. road rash on your ass doesnt sound very appealing to me.

    New to the sport (AFF student) - need some help.

    sound like you need someone to blame and picked the aff I's. dont get discouraged, you just have to get at it until it clicks.

    they are completely different devices and i dont see any correlation between the two. the rsl will not cut your reserve closing loop if you get dirty low with nothing out.

    Safire2 vs Pilot vs Sabre2

    i have a sabre2 so ill comment on that one. i absolutely love the canopy. it flies great, flares great, and is all around fun. it is a very general canopy. it doesn't excel at anything, but there are no real cons either. i get end cell closure on almost every opening, but i've gotten used to it. off heading openings are also common, but my packing and deployment position are getting better and so are the openings.

    welcome a new skydiver in North Carolina !

    welcome to the sport, it's a hell of a thing. here is a great book to get you acquainted with canopy flight. http://www.amazon.com/Parachute-Its-Pilot-Ultimate-Ram-Air/dp/0977627721/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1296601883&sr=1-1 also the skydivers information manual (sim) is a good thing to read before your A license test. http://www.uspa.org/SIM.aspx
