That reminds me. I've got a 3' Rocketman drogue. Only used once. I was considering selling it, but you can't put a price on memories.

What speed did that deploy at? Definitely not one of our Drogue chutes, definitely one of our standard chutes meant for a 3lb rocket, not as a drogue on a heavy rocket, that’s what our Pro Experimental Chutes are for. I’ve never seen a chute tear the cloth out, looks like 100% of the sewing is in tact, including where all the seams were, very strong chute.

Buddy, I think it is still ok. It needs some shroud lines and maybe some scotch tape, but it could fly again. The chute just opened a little early and by a little early I mean the motor completely Cato'd towards the end of the burn, going about 1200mph. This brave little guy jumped out, after getting crushed by 200 gees of flying motor, to try and save the avbay from certain death. He earned a Purple Heart for losing all four appendages.

You know I always fly Rocketman. They don't always survive my flights, but they are the bravest chutes you can buy. Given my last three cato'd flights, I'm thinking you need to start a chute of the month club.
