Default WTB/ Trade: Softie Micro or National 360 Chute

I'm looking for either a Softie Micro or National 360 Parachute. I have a National 425 in excellent (virtually new) condition, that I can trade for one of these smaller chutes. There's nothing wrong with my 425 - I'm just looking for lighter weight/ smaller size.

Not sure if this helps but Don at the Parachute shop has a Softie Micro Wedge (grey with red trim) for sale. I had this rig built for my RV4 and it fits perfectly in a RV4 but I'm 6'4 and unfortunately had to have a second one custom made with longer shoulder straps. It has the small parachute in it and is very thin. Maybe give him a call and see if he will make you a deal on it. Its 99.9% brand new.

Hi Shawn. Do you have the contact information for Don? Or the name/ location of his shop so I can look it up?

Thanks.
