  1. I can't figure it out to save my life... and I've searched a few times. Is there a step by step? Bc I go to edit my profile and do not see an place to do it.... Woot Woot!
  2. Never mentioned taking them off the links... Someone earlier in this message posted a fun jab about that. Woot Woot!
  3. I'm hooking up a Nitro (not nitron) to another set of risers for a friend. I did a line continuity on this canopy and am now scratching my head because I'm not used to non cascading lines.. The front stabilizers (A5 & B5 lines) attached to the front riser and the rear stabilizer (C5 lines) attached to the rear riser. Is this correct? Though it makes sense to me that it is because of the attached drawing - I'd like to get a confirm before finishing this job. Also, with non cascading lines being attached to the links.. Would the order be: D3,D2,D1,C5,C4,C3,C2,C1 REAR RISER LINK B5,B4,B3,B2,B1,A5,A4,A3,A2,A1 FRONT RISER LINK Ty Woot Woot!
  4. It is Xmas time... People are out of town etc. Buuut I still feel your pain. Lol Woot Woot!
  5. W10 Wings, 150 Sabre 2, 150 Smart Woot Woot!
  6. Much appreciated. Woot Woot!
  7. Prior to ordering one.. I'm asking if anyone owns one with a good amount of jumps on theirs and how it is holding up. Just trying to assess if they are durably built and if I can expect a long life out of one with good care. TY Woot Woot!
  8. I own a Wings. I love it. As a jumper I couldn't be happier. As a Rigger it took awhile to get the reserve to pack and close correctly and still be ascetically pleasing (no gaps between the pilot chute cap and the reserve container). But once I had it honed in - it's been perfect. Vectors are excellent as well! But I liked saving the $ for my Wings. Happy Hunting. Woot Woot!
  9. There is one left. These are Bobster Cruiser 2 goggles with 3 interchangeable lens... I just bought 1 of the 3 these folks are selling. On the normal skydive sites they are 30bucks... this is $16.00 with free shipping. Just a heads up for anyone immediately in the market. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bobster-Cruiser-2-Goggles-Black-Frame-3-Interchangeable-Lenses-BCA2031AC-/350645405008?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51a4184550 Woot Woot!
  10. I've got a Sony CX110 and the video card is inserted thru the bottom of the camera. Which stinks when Hotloading. Which Sony's (similar to the CX110 - using for tandem vids) has a video card on the side? Might be time to upgrade to avoid this in the future. TY Woot Woot!
  11. The never ending discussion. :) Personally. I ordered my rig without a RSL or Skyhook. NOT BECAUSE IM CHEAP but because 99% of the time I pull 3K or higher giving me enough time to cut away and return to an arch before deploying my reserve. I dont want to be in a spinning mal cut away, be butt backwards, and my reserve tangling around me etc. knock on wood - 0 reserve rides thus far. Woot Woot!
  12. Well... I was cleaning out the attic of a property I had to take back today and Hot Damn... Found a Necchi BU sewing machine that's in great condition! Does anyone have a pdf manual for one of these or know where I can get one? Woot Woot!
  13. one of those tattoos that make me go... why? Woot Woot!
  14. Anyone jumping a Wings container with a semi stow-less dbag? If so where did you get yours and how well does it marry up with the container? I've a w-10 with a 150 sabre2 that I'd like to go stowless on. Woot Woot!
  15. YES. I sold my old rig because it's MLW was 16 and mine is 18. Also - the old rig had cut in laterals which i opted not to get for my new container. and I have had ZERO lower back pain since. Thank God. Woot Woot!
  16. Stow loops should be large enough to get at least a finger or two thru the loop. Larger loops near bag opening and then gradually making them smaller towards the last stow helps ensure that the loops won't interlock. Woot Woot!
  17. ^^^ what he said. Also, these forums are a great source of info. But answers in person are far more rewarding. Talk to the folks at your home DZ. New skydivers should ask hundred's of questions before make a decision on gear, particular jumps, etc. Woot Woot!
  18. When is the manufacture date? Any update from Airtec? Woot Woot!
  19. When Pro Packing - before you start to roll the tail around your flaked canopy make sure the nose (which was between your legs) isn't pushed INTO your flaking. You don't want to push the nose into the middle of your lines. Also, you can take the nose (which was between your legs) and flake it too. It's a nine cell so - four cells to the left and four to the right which would leave the middle cell more exposed. That should help increase your opening speed a lil... It's the same method for reserves. Woot Woot!
