Zephyr Vest with bigger arm and sled

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone!

 

I've done some looking around, but didn't find what I was looking for.

 

I was wondering how far you can upgrade arms and sleds while still using the zephyr vest? I understand you'd probably have to get a larger socket block.

 

Could you pair the vest with a G-50x/G-70x/pro arm and a Shadow/Archer/pro sled?

 

Thanks!

Hello Kevin, I have a friend who had the zephyr vest, g70x, and a zephyr sled that worked very well. I am not one hundred percent about a bigger sled, but I imagine you would be fine!

Thanks! Yeah, like, I'd like to start looking down the road for upgrades! And picking a place to start, and if the arms/sled don't work with the vest, then I know I'd have to start at the vest. but if I could get a new/used arm and sled that could fly over 23lbs, that the zephyr is rated for, then I'd do that and upgrade the vest later.

 

I just don't know if flying a G-70x arm and shadow sled with a zephyr vest would be a bit ridiculous? And could cause failure from the vest... is that a thing?

 

I might have answered my own question. I might just start with the vest.

Kevin,

 

The Zephyr vest is very capable. You'll find that with heavier loads, it will tend to flex more than a more robust vest, but as long as that doesn't feel uncomfortable, it will be OK until you can upgrade.

 

All the best,

 

Chris

Ya know, for not a lot of money, you can add cross back straps to a Zephyr vest. I did it to mine, and it helps a lot with its side to side stability.

 

Probably would help even more with bigger payloads...
