Whats everyones opinion of rocketman's chutes?
I have an 8' rocketman chute. I can show it to you at the next launch. It has worked great for me and I had Ky make me a kevlar Y bridle as well. I use it quite a bit along with the cert 3 xl chute I got from Jack. Are you going to have your Magnum done for the next launch? See you in 3 weeks.
That's zero-porosity nylon; not all of the Rocketman chutes are made of it, but some are.They are OK for larger tubes. 4in and below they are a bear to fit. The nylon they use is very slippery and won't hold the fold. I had a R-12 with the long tubular risers and slippery material could not get it in my Comp 4. Sold it at a loss just to rid myself of the beast.
I believe the rocketwoman on ebay is from the same company.I took my bid off of that chute. Turns out it wasnt rocketman it was rocketwoman. I should read more before I bid. Any who, I called rocketman and he gave me a great deal on a 8' chute with heavy duty shroud lines. You guys were right about the service.
There's usually a tag sewn on the canopy near one of the risers that will have the size written on it.I have a supposed rc-18 it deploys every time. what more could you ask for.
while we are on the subject.. I said "Supposedly" because I bought it used.
I don't think it says on it what it is.. anyone know how to measure a rocketman chute to find out what size it truly is?
I got a bid going on ebay for a 6ft rocketman chute. Do you think that is enough for the magnum. And unfortunately my leave got canceled so I have to work during the next launch.
Thanks for all the input.
