Re: [morris] Has the Lightning any advantage at all?

"For what reason but a lower overall descentrate should someone love/perfer flying a Lightning? I dont get it, please help me out... " AND "We got Storms for CRW and Im far from being an expert, but to me the wing is very superior in every aspect. Am I missing anything??
Quote:

The Lightning has a quicker recovery than the storm when it gets in a whirley, wrap, etc.
~It will reinflate quicker than the Storm.

So I don't consider your Storm a superior wing in every aspect. It's CRW, you want your wing to reinflate ASAP.

I think high descent rate with slower reinflation is not what one is looking for in a CRW canopy.
That being said, lots of CRW people love em, these have just been my findings
