Canopy Choice Can't Post

I have about 100 jumps(will have wayyy more by the end of summer), and thinking of getting an elliptical canopy!!!
Which one would you experienced people to recomend? I want something that turf-surfs better than sabres but not really high performance
What would be the safest yet good for swooping transition eliptical canopy?

Demo a Safire and a Cobalt. I've jumped the Safire and know it can give you a decent turf surf even at 1.1 wingloading. And you might want to wait to see what PD is cooking up with their new canopy before you buy anything.

pull and flare,

A little early for ellipticals don't you think? Maybe a few semi-ellipticals like Lisa suggested. You could always go for the classic stilletto but I don't have any experience to tell with it. Its just another canopy suggestion. Have fun!!

Safe landings,
