This is an old post. Not sure of the purpose or if you still care. Ross Hunter, Rob Green, Leif Hanson, John Jenson, Mike Scholte, Scott Gravel, Doug Litzenburger, the rocky mountain hang gliding leage, Jason Dyer, Eric, Northern lights, Ted Debeautrap, and I'm sure missing a couple others. All spectra line, all 300lb week links. Mostly tow hang gliders as not many paragliders know how to tow but we do tow some. Tow's average 2000'. You don't really need to tow any higher than that any way. All platform pay out whinch. All in Alberta.
