Apex BASE - Service Bulletin SSR-4-16 - 2016-05-04 by admin

Stainless steel riser rings should be inspected for bending. Bent ring risers should be returned to Apex BASE and a replacement set of risers will be provided. The tensile strength of the visually deformed ring is still greater than the Type 8 riser webbing. Dents in the area where the rings make contact with each other, are common and not a concern.

I was just going to start base-jumping at that time. After some time I saw the movie about the jump and it made my urge to jump there unavoidable.
