Quick openings, docile handling 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: mathrick, 2017-03-01


Had my first cutaway on a Decelerator 150 after a wingsuit PC in tow turned baglock, and it's got exactly what you want from a reserve.

The openings are positive: about as quick as they can be without being uncomfortable; you will have no doubt there's a canopy over your head slowing you down.

The handling is very docile: even though a 150 gives me a WL of 1.3, I was reminded of my student canopies. It flies slowly and turns deliberately. There's plenty of flare, although if you fly a sport 9-cell as your main, you will need a couple tries to perfect the timing.

My first downsize canopy, awesome! 5 out of 5 stars

I was doing my initial AFF jumps on a 285. My instructor has since put me on a ZP.EXE 235 and I am loving it. It opens quickly and so smoothly and it feels great to fly.

My landings seem much easier than the previous canopy I was using and I'm sure I'll be using this for a long time until its time to buy my own.

Opened at termnal and wasn't too bad (my first so I have nothing to compre it to!)

To fly it straight there was a 12+ inch difference in toggle heights!! Stalled easily and landed hard. Overall glad it worked and saved my ass but I'm looking at test jumping some other reserves because I'm not sure I want to fly and land that again!

Also having problems contacting the manufacturer :(
