After jumping Saber 2īs (170), Pilot (188) and Spectre (170) I bought a Hurricane 170 (Brand new 2013) and it is just worlds apart. The canopy is faster in turns, longer in flares and so far, all openings have been silky smooth (even after some really shitting packjobs from me).
Iīve hade one linetwist which gave the canopy a strong dive, that is something I didnīt experience with the Saber 2 (however the Saber had line-twists every other jump it felt like ;) my guess the dive is due to the properties of a elliptic parachute.
Now after 150 jumps with the Hurricane my plan is to buy another Hurricane (135) when the time comes to downsize.
I highly recommend this chute and Erik over at Vertical Sports in South Africa who help me with the order (and some measurements I didnīt do correct for the rig ;)
