New Drogue Bridle Material from UPT

We stop this broadcast to bring you thrilling news of a change in bridle types used on the drogue UPT Sigma Tandem Container System!
Attentive packers and tandem instructors may have noticed that UPT recently switched from the well known yellow Kevlar bridle to a bridle made out of Type-12. They found in their testing that the Type-12 was more resistant to abrasion than the Kevlar and deteriorates less in UV light (aka sunshine).
The price remains the same. Enthusiastic tandem instructors can join the discussion on UPT’s Facebook page.
