PD makes the Navigator that is both ZP & F-111, but it is designed for a student...

PD makes one called the Silhouette, which should be a high performance design, as well as the student and crew canopys. http://www.performancedesigns.com/products/silhouette.html

The new PISA fabric used on Heatwaves and Hornets etc seems kinda like its a mix-even though its not as far as I know.

The ZP used in the Hornet and Heatwave canopies is made by Gelvenor Textiles and is called Nylasilk. It is zero-p, but is not slippery like the stuff that PD uses. Nylasilk is also what Triathalons and Atair canopies are made of.

Strong Enterprises builds their SET 400 tandem mains mostly out of 0-P, but some of the ribs are F-111.

Silhouette is the most popular I believe.
Just say no to Turbo ZX's!

There is also the Electra by Parachutes De France. ZP top skin, F111 bottom skin. Jump one at the weekend a whole load of times - great canopy! Nice openings and pretty zippy to boot!
