This assertion is ridiculous. I forget which show number it was but John was on Skydive Radio a few years ago and stated they were also experimenting with a similar design.

Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.

Where is the evidence, besides "hearsay"

Whats a difference? VS VELO PRO or PETRA for example? Looks awsome thou...

PD got a Petra. Pulled it apart, put it back together. Stuck a PD logo o. There and called it a peregrine.

Icarus did the r&d PD put their spin on it

Thanks for your informed opinion.

Now, just so I can check - you're basing this assertion on

Personal familiarity with both parachutes?
Knowledge of the construction patterns of both?
Firsthand information of the PD / Icarus R&D process?

come on - You're posting this as fact on a public forum, so I'm asking you for your evidence. Put up or shut up. By the way, 'I heard' doesn't cut it...

I'm bored of all the Icarus vs PD bullshit that's been going on for years. The fanboyism is rediculous.

Don't take life too seriously.

The PD vs Icarus is like Ford vs Chev... It will never stop.
Myself I like both, no faves

I never said my statement was fact, nor did I claim to have any knowledge about either canopies.

Just havin a bit of fun

Development timeline comments straight from John at the 4:50 mark in the link below.

Dude, that quote was made AFTER this thread popped up, so he's just doing damage control to keep the secrets secret. It means nothing.

A bunch of guys who don't work for Icarus or PD or build canopies at all said it's a straight rip-off, and that means something. I'm not sure what, but something.

Along those same lines Ian, be careful anytime you're in the factory. If you leave any DNA anywhere in there, they're going to clone you and drop the 'real' you from the team and just use the clone-Ian.

That Petra terminal opening video in the next thread proves that the Peregrine isn't a copy doesn't it? Wink
