Spectre 190 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: damir, 2012-12-21

I bought this canopy used from my dz. It had well over 600 jumps on it. Load is about 1:1. I get consistent 800ft soft openings. I even roll packed it and had about 700ft openings. The canopy is very responsive and fun to fly.

Glide angle is a little steep especially in higher winds. The canopy is ground hungry and flaring can be a little tricky. Once you get used to it you can adapt and land well. Would definitely consider buying another Spectre since I am used to it.

Finally, this was my first off student status canopy that I purchased. I was a little worried since my packing was not good yet, but I never had a hard opening. The openings are really phenomenal and soft. Very forgiving even in the worst pack jobs.
