65 m of mono with single 3.5 mega bungee

Today was a very light day with challenging small thermals. I setup on a new friends field only 15 minutes from my house. The short length mono with the single 3.5m bungee was perfect for the size of field. I spent 4 hours trying different techniques to see what worked for me. I was getting the best launch height starting with launch camber and 2 to 3 second tows. Not up to 90lbs but it is improving. I'm trying to maximize the bungee stretch on zoom. The dreaded parachute pop was heard many times as well as the limp lack of power on the zoom due to leaving it too late.. A bit of a tight rope walk and I'm still pretty wobbley. Great Fun and my right arm is beginning to look like Popeyes..

.I really like this kind of launch!
