  1. I've personally landed with an RSL disconnected and dangling after a jump. Part of my gear-check is to make sure that RSL is connected before exit, which means the red lanyard it got somehow snagged in freefall, or it wasn't fully latched on that rental rig. That incident completely changed my POV on RSLs/MARDs.
  2. Nancy, your current website doesn't seem to agree with that. Would DOM affect volume as well if there were changes made?
  3. That might explain the discrepancies. Is it known at what year did they do this? Tried calling but they're closed for the day. I really do want it specifically so trying hard here.
  4. Thank you Kelly for your insight! Based on Unstable's data point, and that Id have to ship the reserve back if it doesnt fit and eat the cost, Ill probably go with one of the other 2 that are known to fit and play it safe, even if its a worse deal. I vaguely remember reading about more reinforcement and a lot of 1/2 tape on Angelfires, which might explain bigger pack volume.
  5. Because its not as clear to me as it somehow is to yoi? Clearly the I-33 is made for 150 sized F111 reserves, so the assumption is that it will fit a reserve of that size from a different manufacturer. In this case ot might not be true after digging into their actual volume. But where does it say that am extra 40 cu.in. will break compatibility? Gotta love how everyone gets up in arms about container sizes here, I didnt even mention main sizes and yet there's recommendations for that?? And yes, its a container first case with options for PDR143, Tempo 150, or angelfire 150.
  6. Angelfire 150: 390 cu. in. Things that I-33 is made for according to sizing chart: PDR-143: 338 cu. in. Optimum 160: 331 cu. in. Tempo 150: 294 cu. in. Smart 150: 346 cu. in. R-max 148: 333 cu. in etc.. So the Angelfire is 13% bigger than the biggest recommended reserve. I also heard it packs tight with a 150 main. So am I overthinking it and it's close enough and it would fit, or would it be a pain in the ass that's not worth it?
  7. Thanks! Hah I wish, the label is clearly sticking out from under the tailpocket, around ~10% of it can be seen (the boilerplate warning text). That is a good point though, I do need to thoroughly inspect it before jumping.
  8. Wish I knew, it has a tailpocket sewn over the label. I *believe* it's not dash-M or Super Raven.
  9. Awesome info in the thread! Still would like to know the dimensions before jumping it with a slider from a Sabre though..
  10. Hmm didn't realize they have bikini sliders. The goal is to safely skydive it as a main. So the appropriate sail slider dimensions would be ideal. I think dimensions of the bikini slider grommet-to-grommet would be a good start (i.e. a sail slider of the same size shouldn't open any harder).
  11. Would someone be able to measure approximately the size of an original Raven 2 (PIA 218 sq. ft I believe) slider? Thanks!
  12. My risers (using as an example here) are manufactured in such a way that excess stowage is the opposite from what you describe as "correct", what would you suggest?
  13. Goal: get into/develop swooping skills. Question: will doing so create bad habits and/or bad sight picture. Canopy doesn't go very far, but front riser pressure is very manageable, and is very responsive to harness input, how bad of an idea is it to keep it for the next 200-whatever jumps while working on inducing speed. I don't care for looking cool and doing mile-long swoops at this point in time which is why I'm considering this. Yes, I should ask a canopy coach, get a course, etc etc... Not a lot of people know about these canopies, hence my post.
  14. Does someone know/can measure the distance between the brake line cascade and the brake setting loop. And also between the brake setting loop and the toggle? One I bought came with ~2 inch difference between left/right brake lines. It might be possible to figure out which one's which, but confirmation would be comforting.
