Mamba 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: zfcyp, 2016-01-05


Getting on a mamba 150 loading at 1.35 and doing 350 jumps was interesting getting on the 124 loading 1.6 and doing another 350 jumps was even more interesting. Somewhere in there i really had to learn to pack because once i started loading the openings got hectic for a bit but once u learn to pack it opens... Good but rarely on heading... Rarely. Learning to swoop on this canopy is not advisable its named after an animal that bites take that as a warning. Its a steeply trimmed aggressive (maybe the most) 9 cell. The rears are powerful and you really trust them as well as the flair. Now jumping sensai 101 xb and the transition was comfortable the xb is just much more stable and better openings performance wise it is much faster but the dive and riser pressures and flair are reminicent of the mamba.

Between the 2 mambas i briefly owned a xf2 129 i found the mamba 150 to be a much more aggressive canopy and opted to get the 124 mamba as the xf2s replacement.

get to know a good packer and leárn from them.

Aerodyne Nailed it 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Ghobbs444, 2012-09-19


There have been plenty of reviews talking about the flare power of this canopy, they are all dead on! Im about 6'2 225 out the door so Im wingloaded at around 1.5 on my Mamba 150. ( a pretty conservative wingloading considering the planform) I have had no problems bringing it straight in (it still wants to swoop then) Front riser turns are a whole different ball game. Front riser pressure for me is a bit heavy but remains heavy all the way through the dive. Nice long recovery arc and swoops very very well once mastered. There is a huge response to harness input-- I can always get pointed in the right direction without even unstowing my brakes.

You will however, want to pay special attention to how you pack it. I am at a conservative wingloading and it still is very picky. ( i roll the piss out of the nose and the tail)

Overall great canopy with amazing amounts of glide. I glided better than a katana loaded the same. I would recommend this canopy. I love it.


My Mamba 5 out of 5 stars

After 30 years of jumping, I have experience with 23 canopies. I usually jump a 108 Xaos which I think is the best canopy ever made. The Mamba,is the only 9 cell that comes close to cross braced performance. It is a dream to fly and the glide ratio is the best of any 9 cell on the market.
I had poor openings with a pro-pack, with twists and spins. After I psycho-packed it the problems were cured. This is one fantastic canopy!
