So... What's a peregrine?? Can't Post

I keep seeing mentions of something called a Peregrine... Most recently on the PD factory team FB page ...
http://www.facebook.com/...amp;relevant_count=1

and Jay Moledzki's fan page on FB changed it's profile pic to some sort of sweet peregrine like logo

http://www.facebook.com/...lete/287468661307620

I tried to do my homework first so i wouldn't ask a stupid question... but the only thing i could find was again something from facebook... Blueskies magazine commented on PD's page saying
Quote:
A Peregrine.... hmmm hmm, some thing you want to tell us, Performance Designs??

Anybody got any ideas? is this some new top secret canopy?

No secret. It's the new swooping canopy by PD.
Not sure if it's available yet.

I'm pretty sure that the Chute Shop (South Africa) made a canopy called the Peregrine in the early '90s, but I suspect that is not what you wanted to know!

Cool

That's a Peregrine. Cool

In a similar fashion, while the PEREGRINE does a great job of showcasing our Companys design and manufacturing capabilities, it is not available to the general skydiving public.
Performance Designs is identifying top CP pilots and contacting them directly with the opportunity to fly the PEREGRINE, based on their experience and historical competition results. The PEREGRINE will not be made available through our PD dealer network. If you are seriously interested in a Peregrine, the best way to let us know is to continue competing on your Comp Velocity. As you demonstrate your skills and experience, and rise among the CP ranks, we will most certainly take notice.

Don't call them. They'll call you. Love it.

That is an absolutely true statement. They were ZP canopies that competed with the PD Stilletto (and original Sabres before that). Joe Trinko used to sell them in the USA when he was on the Golden Knights and jumping at Raeford. I'm curious to know if the Chute Shop ever trademarked/ copywrited the name and if so, how much PD is paying to "re-use" it.

PS: I saw the PD team making a ton of jumps on the "mysterious white canopies" quite some time ago and figured it was only a matter of time before they properly "announced" it. It's a neat looking main.
