Colton, I've got a couple chutes more than I need. One well past 20 years old and one nearing 20 years old. The challenge is finding a rigger who will work with you on these. They've been well cared for, but age is age. You can find my contact info on the SSA website or ask Steve Leonard how to reach me.

Cheers,

Or, ask about any of the 4 excess chutes I have. But, you might get something a bit newer with the cast to R.A.S. Do any of your chutes come with a Nimbus 3, Craig? I am sure Colten will be looking for an upgrade after a season or two in his 1-26. :-)

Steve, if Colton wants the Nimbus 3, I'll make sure he has a chute.

Once Colten find a chute, I may be in the market for a used parachute up to 10 years old. I just found my chute is out of commission due to mold after it got soaked wet due to ballast leak into the cockpit a year ago. I wasn’t planning on spending on a new chute this year. I checked Silver’s web site and W&W but didn’t find a suitable one.
If you have a used chute in great condition (not the chair style) good for 200 pounds which you no longer need please email me.
