  1. How long would you continue to repack a Tempo or how long is it safe to repack . I had a ride on my Tempo 150 at Hinton when it was 15 years old. That was 7 years ago. Should I be thinking about a reserve shopping trip ?
  2. I like chips, pies and skydiving and in an effort to keep my wing loading at a safeish level considering that im not jumping as much as I used too, what are the pro's and cons for low volume reserves and how much of a size might I be able to upsize to with a low volume reserve. My Tempo 150 reserve sits pretty tight in my Vector might I be able to get a 170 low pack volume in the same reserve tray ? How many low pack reserves exist on the market these days are there any more than the Icarus Nano ?
  3. The Pulse 170 went into the 150 container no problems. Thanks people.
  4. I managed to get a Pulse 170 into a container made for a 150 with no problems.
  5. I did my first jump here ages ago and have been back and forth on occasion just to see if it got any better. In the 17 yrs I have known the place its just got worse as the staff get more and more ancient and grumpy every year. They have no idea of customer care and I guess they think they don't need any as they charge what they like and the one off tandems who don't know until its too late keep rolling up back and keep them in business. If another DZ opened in the South East this place would fold overnight. I tried to talk a friend out of doing a tandem here and he went ahead and jumped. What should have been one of his most exciting and memorable days of his life was ruined by obnoxious, rude and unsympathetic inefficient staff. Please don't give these guys your well earned money. There are so many better DZ's around where you will be welcomed. Its worth the extra travel. If you have a good time here and for some weird reason enjoy the non existent social scene then you are very very much the exception. This place should be avoided at all costs. Oh check out the safety record too. Enough said. STAY AWAY!
  6. Thanks for that. It helps a little but only in that it tells me it packs to a similar volume of Spectre, Storm, Silhouette. Im curious why PD dont like to publish pack volumes?
  7. Im trying to find the pack volume of the Pulse 170 . PD don't list it on the web site specs and Im still waiting to hear back from them. I'm wondering if I can get one in a Voodoo V3 container 350-400 cu in.
  8. Ive not jumped for 3 yrs due to a motorcycle accident. During this time Iv'e put on some extra weight. I'm 5ft 8 and 240 Lbs. When i last jumped my 150 crossfire I was about 20 Lbs lighter. Iv'e about 500 jumps and was very happy on the 150. Am I pushing the envelope now Im a bit chunkier and not so current? The wing loading for me at my current weight is about 1.7.
