Irony is ****ed up huh Sean? I thought you left this group in a huff a few years ago, even posting complaints on FB about how terrible RAS is yet, here you are taking advantage of the newsgroup. Welcome back, hope you stay this time instead of just taking what you can and leaving again.

Dan, as one of the few honored by Sean on rec.soaring and being told by name to "go and f- myself" I do see the irony in his post. Do I want us to keep him? Nah

Have you sold it yet?

My rule of thumb when shopping for a used parachute, particularly one with a defined life-expectancy of 20yrs like a Paraphernalia Softie, is $2000 minus $100 per year since manufacture. So for a parachute made in 2008, I would be willing to pay $800 for it, if I were shopping for one (which I'm not). I paid $1600 for a 4y/o Softie long last year.
