Very nice flight performances 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Dos, 2015-06-10

After trying Sabre1, Sabre2, PD 9-cell I chose to go for the elliptical very lightly loaded and tried a Stiletto 170 and bought my Hurri 170 loaded at 1.2

I had to focus on my opening position on the first jumps and experienced line twists because of my shitty notions of symetry. Now the openings are nice but still, sometimes the canopy makes a 90 turn after full deployement. The openings are really soft (a bit too much if you ask me, I prefer a bit faster openings)

Good, the canopy is now opened ! And it flies really great. The front risers are very light compared to a Stiletto. The front riser turns are "divy" but safe and not that aggressive (I assume those are getting radical when loaded properly) The canopy is stable even in turbulences and is fast.

The flare was the thing that amazed me the most ! Even for a conservative approach, you will slide a bit on the ground with your feet and I like that feeling so much ! When full pull on toggles, you will even fly a couple feet up from the ground !

My Hurri was as new when I bought it (it had 19 jumps)

I bought it on advice from instructors of my DZ and I absolutely don't regret it ! Never heard anybody saying bad things about this canopy.

Love it! 5 out of 5 stars

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 ;)

I love it...but... 4 out of 5 stars

I've bought my Hurricane 170 second hand. It had about 60 jumps on it before mine, and i've put around 40 jumps on it so far. I love the way it flies, the way it turns so fast for a 170. Openings are pretty smooth, sliders tends to stay up, by a little pull on the back-risers gets him down. The flares are pretty awesome, not even tried front-risers landings yet. My only problem so far is that it almost always swerve to the right as it starts to fly. It does a 90-180 turn and then stopsto turn and flies straight. Now i compensate as soon as it opens to minimize the turning on opening and it goes alright. If anybody can help me with that or give me would be appreciated.
