Sew-on 5 cell to 7 cell conversion

I came across an old Parachutist ad to have your 5-cell canopy converted to a more modern 7-cell design, by sewing on an extra cell at each end.

"Make your Strato-Star perform like an XL-Cloud"!

Odd but sounds workable.

That was before my time, so does anyone actually remember seeing this mod?

The ad from May 1981 is attached.

This reminds me of another entry in the category of odd 1980s canopies, the do-it-yourself canopy sewing kit. That's been discussed in this forum before. (The Lone Star kit.)
