  1. I had the exact same problem with my Optima. I wasn't able to reset it. I sent it in and they ended up replacing it with an Optima II so I assume it was something major since they didn't repair it.
  2. I currently have a cypress 1 and will be replacing with a 2 shortly. I really considered the vigil due to potential longer life and not having to send back for a 4 year check up, but after a lot of thought I'm back to the cypress 2 because I just feel more comfortable with it. Also, I really don't mind the 4 year check and I don't know if its just me but I don't believe the self diagnosis within the vigil could be nearly as complete as the extensive testing done by cypres when you send it back. Additionally, if there is something wrong with the unity what's to say that it could actually correctly report a problem. But that is just my own beliefs and I could be totally off but at the end of the day its my last line of defense so I just want to make sure I have what I feel the most comfortable jumping with.
  3. I have had several of their suits and the quality is excellent. Very happy with their work and they have always taken care of me with alterations etc. I think it is great value and definitely worth every cent.
  4. Look at some of the Bonehead helmets. They ship with shims to make them smaller as needed. Don't know if they could accomodate a 2" change, but call them and they may have an idea.
  5. I purchased it right off of AFF so I could have an open face until I was at a level safe to wear a full face. I do mostly belly flying. Recently I sold it and bought a G2 (because I thought like you I would stay with one discipline), but shortly after I ended up picking up a Mindwrap from bonehead cause I really missed getting that open air feeling every now and then. I thought the Revolve was a a great helmet. Actually think it is quite a bit more comfortable than my G2.
  6. I just went to good ol' walmart and got this. Has room for my rig, full face helmet, 2 jumpsuits, gloves, alti etc. I like the wheels, mainly cuz I'm getting old. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Protege-30-2-Section-Rolling-Duffel-Bag-Black-and-Charcoal/13269107
  7. You should be glad I went through AFF before you became an instructor...I was (and still am) an absolute mess...
  8. Sorry it took so long but here are some pictures. This is the standard handle on a small harness. From my memory, the low pro does not come out as far from the lift web but also has a more angular shape on the bottom.
  9. I just meant you can't say "I want a medium low pro". You basically can only say standard or low pro, then they make the choice of which of the small/med/large you get based on what fits best w/ your harness. The low pro for the small harness I felt like too small in my hand. Again these are just my interpretations, my original point was that for smaller guys/gals, the low profile handle is probably smaller than what you expect especially if you are comparing agains friends that may have medium or large harnesses. I should be able to get my pic up shortly.
  10. Just to clarify, you don't actually have 6 different choices. Basically you select either standard or low pro, then depending on the size of your harness, they select the small/medium/large (I think there were 3 different of each) of that type. Sorry for any confusion.
  11. As soon as I get a chance I will post a pic. There are actually 6 different sizes in total, basically a small/med/large size for both the standard low profile handles. The handle you would get is definitely smaller than the pic in the recent post from sundevil.
  12. Congrats and Rick is the man! He helped me a lot!. As far as the low pro handle, You may want to rethink it or talk to Rick. I am the same height as you and I actually went to the factory and saw how small that handle is. Since we are short our harness is obviously smaller and the low pro handle is really tiny for it. After seeing it in person I ended up changing my order from the low pro handle to the regular. And since we have the small harnesses its pretty small anyway. I just measured my standard handle for you and at it's widest 3 1/8" and at the narrowest its 2". It extends out about 2 1/4". That's just my .02
  13. Its a bit of a drive from Ft. Lauderdale but Skydive Sebastian is nice.
