Oasis Paraglider DHV 1-2

I bought this wing last fall and have flown about 1.5 hours and flies like a dream. The reason I'm sell it is that I bought a higher performance wing and haven't used this one much. This is the information on ebay when I bought it.

This is a lovely flier nice handling and good glide and going cheaply as there is a small professional mend (done by the loft last 10 months ago). This consists of about a 10 inch long patch against the seam of one panel on the underside. It does not affect the flying qualities or safety of the wing in any way.

This is the precursor to the Gin Zulu, and I have a very experienced friend who has flown both and says he thinks the Oasis is a better all round flier.

The holes were small. I remember one time I was folding it and I pushed down and heard a pop as a the sharp stalk of a weed that had been cut poked through the glider. I recall the patches were band-aid sized. I have never landed in a tree with it or anything like that. It has had a couple of lines professionally replaced.

Last night I took it out from the stuff sack and folded it accordion. I had intended to take more photos of the patches and what not, but I did not see them while I was folding, likely because I patched it with the same color fabric. I was going to take another photo, but without anything to show it just looks like a blue mess of fabric.

I had it inspected a few years ago and the porosity tested "excellent" but who knows what that means. It probably has 30 hours since then... It has been sitting dry and loose in a stuff sack in my closet for 3 going on 4 years except when I flew it once last November. I just wanted to check it out again. It flew great so I decided to keep it. I was surprise how sporty it handled. I guess I forgot how much fun it is to fly :) but I have not flown it since then as it is really similar feeling to my new glider (Nova Mentor) so I just fly my new one... and now I am selling it because it is not doing me any good just sitting in my closet. 

I am confident this glider has less than 200 hours on it... and according to the factory they can go up to 350 or 400. Of course age and time in the sun factor in. But it definitely still has some life left in it. In my experience, old gliders that have porosity issues or lines out of trim do not launch or kite very well, and this glider launches and kites just fine. 

This is a good glider for someone that wants to fly cheaply yet have a great starter with good performance. 

New Photo's as you can see it's still crisp flies great!
