The best one will be the one that saves your life every jump. Wink Finish your AFF, rent some gear until you comfortable landing a canopy in the size you can handle, and one that you'll fly for awhile, then worry about what you like the best.

haha i agree. I figure I will be trying them out for a while. and certainly not getting one until I have at least like 20 jumps. I was just wanna do all my research so I need to start now lol. Im trying to find out I guess what brands are good for what.

I second that. Here here. I think that many people come to these forums, not familiar with DZ.com, not familiar with skydiving in general, but want to learn. Perhaps making that a-sticky would be a good way to help make a better first impression
