Below is a note that Tony Suits has shared with all customers who received a modification to accommodate auxillary handles on their Apache wingsuits:
This Service Bulletin applies to all Apaches received with the loop auxiliary handles:
Service Bulletin – Apache Wingsuit Owners – Auxiliary handles
In recent testing we discovered that the pull force with the auxiliary handles we’ve shipped recently with our Apache wingsuit can be higher than the TSO standard in some configurations.
As a result we ask all customers to cease using the auxiliary handles immediately.
If you wish to use the suit in the skydive environment in preparation for BASE jumping a master rigger should be consulted to modify your suit, adding slots so that the existing handles can be mounted on the front of the suit.
