good canopy 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: hudsonderek, 2007-12-03

I had a crossfire 1 169 that didn't need the line mod. I loved the openings (especially coming from a Sabre) and flare, a step or two on calm wind days is all you needed. the glide was great and long spots were no issue. the thing that got me (and the reason I sold it) was the riser pressure was insanely high (fronts and rears), after about a 180 degree turn it was almost too much to hold down. I'm getting a Xfire2 now, so lets see if it gets any better (I just love those Icarus openings)

Crossfire 1 5 out of 5 stars

I fly a 99 and it is a sensational canopy.Utterly brilliant in every way.Mind you I have had times where it has nipped at me and if you're not paying attention it WILL bite. Front riser pressure is a little too high for my liking(compared to my last,pintail 120)but once in a dive it 'has a heading'.I am by no means a flash jumper but loading it @1.7ish it is a hot curry,deal with the consequences!

Crossfire - Best all-around Elipitical. 5 out of 5 stars

I have close to 400 jumps on a crossfire loaded at about 1.35 or so, and I have had the most fun with this canopy! I am constantly impressed with the crossfire's versatility. I have managed to jump tight Demo's with it, play around with CRW, Long fast Swoops,I have made it back from LONG spots with this canopy, have jumped camera with nice soft openings...the list goes on and on.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I give the Crossfire a 9.
That being said, I have been surprised by
