Safire 2 129 in Javelin RSK-1
Sunpath's container sizing chart says the RSK-1 can hold a main canopy up to 120 sq ft (ZP). I'm looking to put a Safire 2 129 in. The Safire is elliptical, and my canopy has somewhere between 700-1000 jumps, so it packs very small.
Does anyone have experience with this container/canopy combo? I will definitely pay attention to the manufacturer's warnings (and I haven't asked my rigger yet what he thinks), but I'd like to hear from other jumpers as well. Are the extra 9 square feet too much?
I have an RSK-1. Anything over a 120 will be extremely tight. I had a very old sabre 120 in mine for awhile and even that was on the tight side. Then I had a safire 2 109 in it which was great, not tight but not too soft either. I'm sure you could squeeze a 129 in there, but I'd go up a container size.
