Looking for a used emergency shute. I fly a pitts s1c. Not picky on the manufacturer unless someone knows something i dont and if so, please share your input. No seat packs. I am too tall. Let me know if you want to part with one. Thanks.
Unless you happen to know how to PLF like a champ - And do not happen to land in bad area...... You want the largest parachute you can strap on.Thanks for the info pittsdriver68. Are you calling me fat?����. I am 6'1" and weight 180lbs. I think my weight puts me at the threshold for the smaller chutes like the micro softie and like others. Just looking for a nice used one right now. Can't swing 2,500 for a new one right now. Thanks again.
Problem is if you are a larger person there is no way you can get the stick back with the HUGE Strong backpack chutes. Your face will also be in the dash. Kinda funny they sell these to big Pitts guys. Wes you must be a skinny little thangIf you are taller than average you are likely heavier than average. Look for a Strong 303 or 311 back, or a National 425 or 490 back. Security's are really cheap but only good for car covers these days (why they are cheap).
Best of luck,
And how many skydives do you have? If a person has a few hundred jumps, I think a square is a great choice.And if you really want to get the discussion going...... I have a micro softie wedge on its way with a PD-170 square in it
