Talon 2 T7 question and chute size? help!

Recommended Posts

Alright so I've checked a few threads and still have a few questions. I'm a new skydiver working on my A license. SOOO... I had (key word had) some extra money lying around so I decided to buy my first container. Its a Talon 2 T7 with a 210 reserve already installed. I am 215 lbs out the door and am considering buying either a 190 main or 210 main. Can anyone help me out and let me know which one would be better overall for fit and safty wise... I mean I understand the more canopy over your head when you first start is better. The last owner of the container said he flew a 190 no problem, would a 210 fit? Basically I am wondering if the T7 d-bag and closing loop is capable of housing that size parachute. I'm just lost. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated.

based on the Talon 2 instruction manual the reserve/main container volume is 550/650 respectively, if you compare this with the 2008 Volume chart based on those volumes it can take a Pilot 210 or a Sabre2 230. For what size you should get, talk to your instructors as they have seen your canopy skills and are best to comment on what size you are ready to fly.

You can find the Talon 2 instruction manual on the Rigging innovations website.. the container volume information is also there

Good Luck with your new rig :)
