Description
The Fusion is Precision's entry range 9-cell elliptical main. This canopy has been developed for the skydiver who wants a little more kick and excitement than might be found in a 7-cell, but is still relatively docile when compared to our upper end 9-cell design, the Nitron. Wing loading is truly the key to the flight performance envelope of the Fusion. Depending on wing loading, the flight characteristics of the Fusion will grow from being docile and tame at the low end to exciting and zippy on the upper end, but the Fusion will always remember who is boss, and respond accordingly. The Fusion could serve a first time buyer very well for their first thousand jumps, and with the High Modulus Aramid fiber suspension lines there will be little worry about having to change out the lineset between seasons. This high-lift low-drag airfoil will always get you back from those questionable spots (or at least get you closer to the DZ than those other guys). For the more experienced skydivers flying at higher wing loadings, the Fusion can still kick up enough attitude to even satisfy those old-timers who used to fly the blade courses with their pocket rockets.

nitron 150 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: paulo.enrique, 2018-01-09


After looking for a canopy that takes me safely to the dark side of canopy piloting my coach recommended Nitron. So I got my Nitron 150 loaded it at 1.5 and flew great.
Very similar to safire2 o Sabre2, always soft and on head openings the HMA lines let the canopy to display the full area. one advantage over the sabre is that if it is well packed it never turns, it will open exactlly in the same direction that you are looking at the moment you deploy.
The surf, OMG!!! the surf, it goes way further than Sabre2 in no wind days, just a slow consistent input on the breaks and it will take you further, recovery arc could not be any better, it response at every single input and goes back to neutral as you stop.
Great canopy, but as another review states, Precission Aerodynamics marketing department sucks!!!
you want to go fast and safe this is the canopy.


PA Fusion 210 1 out of 5 stars

Review by: skyfox2007, 2017-10-27


I recently purchased a used PA Fusion 210 main and have made approximately 65 jumps with this canopy. Its primary flight characteristics couldn't be better. It's stable - even in high winds - is capable of sporty turns even when loaded at 1:1, and has a powerful landing flare that can't be matched by any other canopy I've jumped previously. The openings - however - are scary and dangerous in my opinion. The initial phase of deployment is smooth - exhibiting a long, comfortable snivel of approximately 800 feet. The second phase of the deployment - when the chute begins to inflate along its long axis - is characterized by uneven inflation of the cells and violent 90-270 degree turns to my left that almost always produce line twists. In 65 jumps, I have yet to witness a single, on-heading opening. My primary concern is running into another jumper up or down the jump run. Soft pressure on the right riser during deployment will sometimes inhibit the turn or reduce the violent yaw I almost always experience, but this doesn't always work. I've also been very careful to halt my tracks, flatten my body position to slow down, and maintain a constant heading with a fixed object on the ground for at least 4-5 seconds prior to deployment. Several of my pack jobs have been supervised by packers and riggers and are proper and safe to the best of their knowledge.

I've attempted to contact Precision Aerodynamics with respect to this issue several times: 4 times via email and 9 times via phone - at different times of the workday - over the past two weeks. I successfully connected with a receptionist only once and she gave me another email address to forward my previous messages to - but to no avail.

Between the scary openings and the lousy customer service, I do NOT recommend this canopy or PA products to anyone - particularly newer jumpers. Their website is also poorly maintained and outdated. Many of its links no longer work and very little information - other than a vague, hyped-up description - is available on its products.

I should've listened to my AFF instructors when they told me to "buy a PD." Only a few hours after emailing them the other day, I received a phone call to organize a for a two-week demo on one of their silhouettes.

fusion 150 2 out of 5 stars

Review by: Skyjeff03, 2015-06-16


I had purchased my Fusion 150 and have 3 jumps on it. Canopy flight is good but just after the canopy opens, it immediately turns in the right. I have to grab the rear risers to contained the turn.
