If you think Cypres is better than Argus or any other AAD... Think again. in General Skydiving Discussions March 29, 2011 Quote I can also remember a very talented skydiver predicting that one day AAD's would cause more incidents than they helped. I think we're approaching that day. . This could be the stupidest thing I have ever read. TO THE ORIGINAL POSTER: Rig manufactures have made the decision to ban the Argus because of a crappy cutter than can cause huge problems in the right situation. Are you really that upset? Let me ask you a question that I sincerely hope you will answer honestly. Suppose you choose to jump an AAD. You have a brand new Argus and a brand new CYPRES sitting on the table and you can choose 1, what would it be given all the factual data? I think its pretty obvious.
