Anyone jump a Batwing? Review please :) Can't Post

Wondering if anyone has jumped a Batwing? Did you like it? How does it handle... Checked the reviews section here but nobody has posted a review on this canopy. I have the change to pick a 116 up for a reasonable price. The guy selling it says it's great but looking for other opinions...

I havent jumped one but....

BAtwings are snivelers for sure, but super duper easy to pack :)-LOL

I hear the riser pressure is alot, but little input is required for toggle turns. Dont think you'll get super surf out of em either, and I her they kinda lose their flare if you lose all your forward speed trying to stretch it out. But I guess you could say that about any canopy:)

Some folks love em, some dont care for em, go jump it and see wht you think for yourself.
