Spectre 170 in Javelin J1 ?
Hi, I have just rebought back my J1 container, havent jumped for a bit and hoped to. I used to have a Spectre 150 in it but with age and gravity , lol, know what i mean, I wanted to use a bigger canopy..ie a 170. Has anybody out there done this ? Sunpath says there is no way it will fit...just wanted other opinions...yay or nay..if nay..its for sale.
Yes it will fit however not according to the manufacture . I had a 170 saber 2 in a 2001 j1 and it was snug but fit even with the correct length closing loop. The specter is a 7 cell so it should be easier to pack than the saber.

Well to answer your question no i have not seen a rig with the reserve tray ripped off, nor have i ever seen damage of any kind done to the reserve tray of any rig. I cant say i understand how this could happen during a normal deployment no matter how over stuffed the rig might be. Maybe deploying in a feet down position or even on ones side possibly but thats a whole other ball game. I am just telling him my personal experience which was i could fit a 170 saber 2 in a J1k and i put about 200~ jumps in this configuration with no damage.
