    L&B service through SSK

    So as far back as I can remember, when an L&B product has an issue, you send it back, and get a replacement. This is what made them such a good company with top notch customer service. A friend of mine recently tried to get his audibles repaired, and was notified that SSK industries now handles L&B service in America, which charge $99 per unit being repaired Can anyone confirm this is true? Would be quite a disappointment after years of such fantastic service.
  2. I have over 400 jumps on a Scirocco 82. 90% of my openings were on heading ONLY when pulling on the rears and letting it snivel. This canopy is not designed to open by relaxing in the harneess . I would do this and never touch my risers on most Velo openings, but this is a different machine. I personally love the openings and how this canopy flies.

    Viso II Elastic Wrist Band

    Why a tight one? Does it strech after time?

    Viso II Elastic Wrist Band

    What have been your experiences with the new mount? Does it get in the way with your jumpsuit sleeve? Has it loosened up or lost elasticity over time? Please share experiences and specify size used. Thanks.

    Where do we go from here???

    Well, one of those are my home dropzone, and ever since my aff course 13 months ago, I've managed to jump a little under 300 jumps. Plenty of people here to jump with. Plenty of RW, or freefly, whatever floats your boat. Friendly atmosphere, safety oriented. So first come and give it a try. Then you can decide to say that the DZ "sucks". Yea I know, your are right you guys are gr8 down there. Was just a little frustrated that day when I made that post. I saw you today I'm the guy that did the refresher course with you. Didn't get to make a jump today but that's because of gear issues but you guys where gr8 about. So oops on that little comment. But I do hope to get down there a lot more often so I can meet more ppl from there. Haha, what are the odds? Its all good. Believe me you can start jumping here with people real quick! Always find Ron and she'll hook you up with the right people! :)

    Custom Harness Fit

    Just yesterday i was trying on a rig to see how well it fits and to see if i want to buy it. It was assembled with a reserve canopy but no main. I felt the rig was small and sat way to high on me. Once i put a main canopy in it was a huge difference and it fit perfect. You're trying yours on with no canopies at all so i guarantee it will fit completely different when you pack it .

    Talon Squeaking Noise

    All jokes aside, anyone else got more information about this noise, and possible solutions?

    Talon Squeaking Noise

    So its the sound of the harness rubbing against the rings?

    Talon Squeaking Noise

    I'm trying on a talon fs to see if I want to buy it. When all the straps are secure, there is a squeaking noise when I move around that comes from the harness and what I think is where it connects to the (hip/chest) rings. I know of another person with a another talon and I heard the same unusually loud squeaking noise when he moves around in the harness. Anyone know about this? Causes? Solutions? Thanks.
