JFX Packing Volume
Hi I'd like to get a JFX. I've heard very conflicting reports concerning it's packing volume. According to a friend and the nzaerosports packing volume table it packs about 1 size SMALLER than a Crossfire 2 of the same size. I.e. packing Volume of JFX 109 = P.V. of a Crossfire 99.
Others say that can't be because of the crossbraces etc. The UPT Sizing chart says the opposite and does not include all JFX sizes.
I'm interested in a 104 and have a Vector V319. Does anyone know if that will work out? Or can anyone give feedback on similarities in packing volume of non crossbraced canopies?
Don't know if you're still interested but I had the same issue. The values on the NZ aerosports website are correct (for my canopies). I have my second JFX, the first one was a 99, now an 89. They do pack significantly smaller than other crossbrace canopies and indeed even about a size smaller than the crossfire. I'm not sure why this is the case though. My 89 fits into a V303 easily, even the 99 fit into it. Then again, it also depends on how you pack. I had some discussion about this with UPT as well, they insisted that it would not fit in...
