    I'm curious to know if there's a weight load for the contraption holding up the pool deck. I always get sweaty palms when people are jumping around on the thing.

    I was really worried it was going to break when Sabaton had everyone jumping during the first cruise. Granted, the design is much, much better now than it was then.

    I have two mosh pit stories and neither of them is a horror story. One was a slight disappointment and the other was how did the LP I had in my hands survive.

    The first was for God Forbid. They were starting there third song of the set and no pits were going on so I moved from the back to dead center of the floor and once the third song picked up I grabbed as many people and ran forward and for the rest of the night all hell was breaking loose for them, Municipal Waste, Children of Bodem and Lamb of God. But in that first pit that first song I took 3 Fists, 3 Elbows and 1 Steel Toe boot (from out of nowhere :shock: ) to the same eye and thats the disappointing part my eye barley bruised so no battle scar the next day.

    Second was for a concert my back was giving me shit so wasn't planning on moshing. Holy Grail just got done playing and I was impressed with their set so I went and bought their LP. 3 Inches of Blood came up and couldn't resist jumping in the pit, then followed by Eluveitie which never left the pit for them plus the wall of death they did. At the end of the thing the LP was still in one piece and I was bruised all over the place, but smiling like a mother fucker.

    Wait I just remembered after the 70K12 I caught cannibal corpse in my home town. During the first band got hit in the ribs and broke some ribs. Stuck it out and even as a gimp jumped into the Cannibal Corpse pits a few times only to step out gasping for air every so often.
