I have a rig that's been in storage unused since 2008 (javelin odyssey container/ performance designs spectre 170 main/ pd pr176 reserve / expired cypres). I want to get it checked over by a rigger to see if it is still in decent condition, apart from the expired cypres of course. The rig is in central Manchester, and I could bring it to any nearby rigger but I'm reliant on public transport.

Can anyone suggest a place / does anyone know a rigger who might be able to have a look at the rig and maybe repack at least the main in exchange for a small amount of cash?

I want to get an idea of how much it is worth and whether it needs much maintenance before deciding whether I'm likely to re-enter the sport myself or sell the rig.

FYI I'm a lapsed beginner skydiver - 45 jumps & uspa a license in 2008 before stopping jumping due to injury.

Tilstock is about an hour from Manchester, if you tancy popping down, I have 2 riggers and a rigger examiner who would happily give your kit the once over.
