I would vote for container #5, and canopy #1. (always nice to have the centre cell a different color than the rest Angelic )

Well I think your getting close to my rig. I had color patterns very similar to your before I settled on what you see below. So obviously you have good taste in colors and rig selection....lol...My vote is container 6 and canopy 4

Go with a canopy with a couple of high-visibility cells. It will make it easier to find when you chop it, and make it less likely that someone will hook into you under canopy.

You make a good point here. However, the canopy before my last one (the one I have on my avatar) was full white, let alone the World Wrestling Federation logo it had underneath. It was extremely visible, but a white canopy is always dirty, due to packing, especially the center cell. Crazy

I like rig #5 and canopy #10, with one exception - I would match the stabilizer color to the end cells.

I'm voting for container #3 or #5 (I actually think I liked 3 better, but of all the choices, those two stood WAY out). Smile

As for canopies...are 10 & 11 not the same?

I'll go with 10.

Happy shopping!

Have a look at 2 left cells being navy blue, every other cell being black and then every rib being red.
