This is freebird. I trained on a 170. Then they got in the 150 (all sabres). I am 100 pounds. I have jumped a 135 Triathlon and stood it up on my first jump. I also jumped a 135 sabre I did not stand that one up on my first jump. I think it was a no wind day. I jump the 150 sabre because I am still renting. When I order my canopy my main concern is a canopy being docile in the event of a mal. Will a triathlon spin more than a sabre in with a line over?
Theoretically no. BUT.....any canopy can spin violently given the right circumstances or conditions. So I guess, there is no single answer to your question. Maybe the response should be "The LIKELYHOOD that it will spin violently is less on the seven cell triathalon than the nine cell sabre".
Or I could be a smartass and say..."Don't pack a lineover". That fixes it, right?
