Cracker openings?? Packing q? Can't Post

Hi all,

I'm jumping a new safire 2 189 (bit over 30 jumps so far on the canopy). I'm getting some real funky openings, some really hurt, most end up in a 360 or more. I've been rolling the nose (4 cells each side) into the nose of the center cell, and rolling the tail 15 times before laying it on the ground to try and slow them down. I always make sure the slider is on the stops and quartered before I roll the tail and lay it down to compress the air out of it. Sometimes its a 500ft snivel which is an ok opening but mostly its around 200ft. I've been told im doing too much to it when packing but when i do less (aka standard issue pro pack) i get the tingles in the fingers
and whiplash when it opens. Ive had others pack it and still get the same thing. I'm thinking its the line trim or the slider size but i could be wrong?

Any thoughts, suggestions or other packing tips will be greatly appriciated.
