140 I hadn't rocked the 4.0 in weeks, so I was psyched. I made my first feeble attempts at looping (mostly to egg Paul on) and have a sore ankle to show for it. Need to back up and work on basic jumping skills first. I went back to the Prolimit harness after a few days in the Dakine and now I see what Fredrick and Olivier were saying this whole time about the pro not being the greatest. It now feels very loose and unresponsive. So what if the Dakine doesn't have the quick safety release. Guess I'd rather take the million to 1 risk of drowning twisted up than spend my days using a sh$%&y harness.
