    Infinity mesh backpad. Durable?

    I have had my Infinity nearly two years and the back pad looks as good as the day I received it. I pretty much only ever pack indoors and on a carpet, but I don't use a packing mat and I drag the container to the bag when I am stowing the lines. We have another 7 on the DZ and they all look good as well.

    New Infinity Containers in Stock?

    Not sure if they have any stock rigs but 6 week rush is only an extra $250, why not email them at nfinitySales@velocityrigs.com tell them Alex sent you.

    Cyprus Boogie - help filling planes!

    I was at the Cyprus Bogie 2 years ago when they had the Let over. We had a great time, pity it doesnt seem to be going to well, Kingsfield is an excellent DZ with some stunning views from the top. Next time you go up tell Tony Goodman I said hi and tell him to give me a cal on the firms phone. Buzz xxxx

    Sony V1U

    Why is it not a tandem camera ? It looks about the same size as my HC1, just a little higher, but not as high as a VX2000. Buzz xxxx

    Sigma 10–20mm EX DC HSM Lens

    Just brought on myself, to go on my 350D (Rebel XT), to replace the kit 18 - 35mm lens. Here are some shots along with a comparrison shot. Exit 10mm and Exit 18 mm show the diference in field of view between the two lenses, both shots were taken from a ssimmilar position on the rail of an Islander. As you can see from these the 10 - 22mm lense is much sharper and much brighter, I am really pleased with this lense. Buzz

    Where can I find a roll cage for HC40?

    Check out the threads on DBoxes for the HC30/40. I bought one from Bonehead 2 weeks ago whilst I was in Elsinore and have just fitted it, it rocks. Once fitted and foamed you can drop the camera in and take it out real easy. I will post some pics tommorow night. Buzz

    A different Suunto question

    I use mine in normal Alti mode. I wear an Alti2 which I use during free fall, then use my Suunto under canopy to set up for landing. I prefer this way, but once I get a Neptune I will stop using both. Buzz
