Tip Tuesday: Landing Patterns
Heading to a new DZ? Here are a few tools from Flight-1's Justin Price to help you scope it out before you even get there...
Sun Path Products are now manufacturing tube stows in their facility in North Carolina, near the well-known Paraclete XP tunnel, and Skydive Paraclete, Raeford.
Using 'made in the USA' surgical grade tubular elastic these stow bands will be available in several different sizes, suited of all line types including tandems. Tube stows don't bind, they wear less, give less friction, arguably improving consistency of openings. They don't wear as fast as regular bungees, and are stronger, so they last a lot longer.
Sun Paths stows come in packages of 50, 500 or 1,000, available from their website store here you can call Sun Path]. Call Sun Path if you wish smaller sized packages. (+1 910 872 9002).
The stows are ideal to complement Sun Path's 3-stow deployment bag with tuck tabs, for quicker, easier packing, hardly ever needing to stop and change a broken bungee.
