Where to buy parachute for winch?


I'm looking for a parachute for my winch, I took a look at NESAIL but almost $40.00 is to pricey for a chute, I also ordered one from Soaring Stuff and Iv'e heard bad things from them so I don't think I'll be getting it so are there any other places to look at?

Can you just make one? That's what I did for my Hi-start. I know it's a different animal, but thought I'd ask.

There was a fellow that sold some good chutes on the soaring exchange a while back for $5 or so each. They're Vietnam or Korea-era flare chutes, so they're nice and strong, but camo green as well

I've been using one for a couple of years, and it shows absolutely no wear. Maybe someone will remember who that was, or you can check the soaring exchange archives.

Let me set it straight with Souring Stuff. Although I didn't get it at lightning fast speed like some others are know to ship, I did recieve the shipment today and the order was as I asked. It was also shipped priority mail.

I will order again from them if thay have what I need.
