This should be obvious, but... for the thick-headed: HAYDUKE 2 is not a "magic" parachute that performs perfectly in every situation regardless of how you use it, configure it, or fly it. It is a parachute system that demands extensive training and good judgment to use safely and properly. It is critical that you fully understand each aspect of this parachute system, and that you configure the system correctly for each scenario that you use it for. The slider system, packing method, pilot chute selection, and jumper freefall technique MUST be adjusted for every scenario in every jump. Therefore, it is mandatory that you take the time to educate yourself on each specific aspect of this parachute system and its proper use. Misconfiguring or misusing this parachute system can easily lead to equipment failure, injury, or death. YOU MUST READ AND UNDERSTAND THE MANUAL BEFORE USE.
And remember, even when properly used, this product may malfunction or fail to operate as expected. You risk death or serious injury each time that you use this parachute system. Being a BASE jumper means taking responsibility for your own life, death, and wellbeing. BASE is dangerous and unpredictable, and no equipment can mitigate all risk factors, nor can a manufacturer predict how all jumpers will use their equipment. Therefore: Consider yourself a test jumper!
