Rigger weights


Recommended Posts

I would think the fact that any type of "planning weight" needs to be pulled, in order to generate downward force. That would likely negate any of the "less blowback" effects the shape would have. Plus the heavier the weight the more force would be needed to pull it to where the wings would start to overcome the weight of it (depending on the size of the wings I guess). I don't have a physics degree or anything so I could be wrong but that's just what I think. Just think about the divers we all use (dipsey, slide, chinook, etc), There is a ton of force on the rods and those things only have ounces of weight on them.
