Performance Designs   (7878 Hits)

The PD 9-cell, the first product to be released by Performance Designs, was revolutionary in its day. At a time when main parachutes were simply intended to get a skydiver down to the ground, Bill Coe, founder of Performance Designs, believed the performance of Ram-air canopies could be vastly improved. The PD 9-cell raised the bar for all main parachutes; it provided superior flare power and more responsive flight characteristics than the average main.

I love my 1994 PD 190! Packing is ridiculously easy and it is very forgiving if you trash pack. I am at just over a 1.1:1 ratio. I have never had a bad landing because of the lesser flare, just have to jog it out a little on those no wind days. Canopy takes turbulence better than a ZP canopy. Openings are wonderful! I have jumped Sabre canopies and they opened a lot faster and harder, especially if you don't pack them really nicely. Perfect beginner canopy! I believe that you are not supposed to go more than a 1:1 on a F-111 canopy but the only difference it makes is decreased flare power. Love this canopy!
