Both canopies and the container are like new, only have 55 jumps on entire rig, no reserve rides, reserve has only been repacked 5 times, and the AAD is expired but the cutter is still good. I'm the only owner, I started having back/knee problems and never recovered enough to start jumping again. Very versatile size for all big and/or tall skydivers. Container was custom built for me when I was 6'6" tall and 230 lbs, chest measurement 44", waist 34". I'm currently 6'6"/275 lbs/49"/39" and it still fits me like a glove (pic of me wearing it in the house is current Feb 2021). Container: Mirage G4, size M7, DOM Feb 2005. Has RSL, Unisyn hip+chest rings, BOC freefly handle, soft cutaway handle, metal D-ring reserve handle, integrated hook knife, 1" mini risers, center line collapsible pilot chute. Has minor wear/dirt on leg strap from a poor landing, otherwise in like new condition. Main: PD Sabre2 230, DOM Nov 2004. Blue/White/Blackberry/White/Blue cells. Collapsible slider, soft links, lines, and canopy are in pristine condition, still extremely slick. Reserve: PDR 218, DOM Feb 1992 (only owner, purchased new in 2005). All red cells. No rides, repacked 5 times, pristine condition. AAD: Airtec Cypres Expert (EXPIRED), single cutter (unfired), DOM May 2001. Includes extra rubber bands, tube stows, main closing pin, and main closing loop. To purchase this same rig brand new would cost you $6,330; G4=$2,475, Sabre2=$2,390, PDR=$1,465. Make me a reasonable offer and this great rig can be yours for a steal of a deal! Prefer to meet within 2 hours of middle Georgia, but will ship under the right conditions.

I don't know if this is a topic that has ever been discussed, but i wanted to bring it up because I haven't came across any post. I've read plenty of articles debating a variety canopy flight and deployment characteristics, but nothing about altitude loss. I'm particularly interested in talking about the snivel/altitude loss of canopies. I understand it's nothing serious to consider when skydiving because the deployment altitude is higher than base jumping per say. However, it's something i'm personally interested in learning about and wanted to see if anyone else had any input? I've read articles about the Pilot or Safire 3 having severe snivel characteristics, so how does that relate to altitude loss? - Is a snivel characteristic correlated to altitude loss? - Is a hard opening caused by the canopy opening quicker, thus losing less altitude? Interested to see if anyone has any input?
