Your wrong it DOES have a short recovery arc.

on a 99 at 1.5-1.6 it was right at 150ft according to my neptune

Compared to what?

Compared to a Velo/Katana - yes, it's shorter.
Compared to a Pulse, Stiletto, Heatwave etc, etc - it's longer.

Also, what exactly are you measuring at 150ft?

Those are all flat trimmed canopies, (dont know why you through the pulse into that mix) they may not all have the same recovery arc, but they are all relative and can be classified as short.

To measure the recovery arc, i used a chest mounted neptune, and used a go pro with an extended mount on my helmet facing down. (oh no! a snag hazard!) A frame by frame review will give you a good idea of the recovery arc. I attached a pic to show.
