Take the 33" PC. I would recommend against the 129" kill line though, 9" to 10" would do fine Laugh

PC size is more related to the size of your canopy. I jump 135 and 150 SF canopies. My PC is a 28" ZP. If the PC is F111, upsize about 4-6 inches.

YMMV

Take a look at Chuting Star for your PC. They have some of the best prices around.

While nine inches will do the job in many situations, getting a PC into clean air isn't one of themTongue

Sunpath makes F-111 PCs only, I think.

Birdynamnam, you mean 9'-10' , not 9''-10''
129'' = 10' 3/4 = 327.66 cm

(22-)24" ZP kill-line PC would be enough. There is no need to get a bigger than 26-28"
