Working jumper canopy choices Can't Post

A friends recent injury on a work jump, got me thinking. Almost without exception my AFF and Vidiot friends jump smaller (120 or less) elliptical or crossbraced canopies.

On one hand staff jumpers are super current, especially as everyone I know works at full time dz's. I can see the attraction of the sportier canopies.

On the downside, work jumpers have to jump when tired and conditions get sketchy.

Without focusing on specific individuals I'd be interested in hearing peoples thoughts.

At a personal level I am working as hard as I can towards being a weekend warrior work jumper, so its relevant.
