Anyone have any spy info on the upcoming "Sabre 2?"

Rumor at my DZ says it's a semi-eliptical 9 cell with higher loading and TSO'd for higher opening speeds.


Skydiving is not a static excercise with discrete predictability...

So now we can get slammers at higher speeds? I can hardly wait. Tongue

PD salesmen are promising a slightly tapered nine cell that is more forgiving of packing errors. Gee! Sounds like a Safire or Hornet.

Actually, if they can get it to open somewhere between the current Sabres and Spectres, without having to roll the nose, I'd be all over that.

Rumor has it that they will have demos available at Elsinore on June 2/3. I'll have my report ready.

I heard that the name at the factory is "Super Sabre"
