Storm 107 opening on terminal

Recommended Posts

Is there anybody on this forum that jumps the PD Storm 107 with freefall (FS, Wingsuit, ...)? So openings on terminal?
I have a CF Storm 107 for 3 years now, with +400 jumps on it, but all with CF, so hop-and-pop. I know that the difference between the 107 (and smaller) and the 120 (and bigger) is that PD has stretch the top-skin more over the nose on the bigger canopies, to allow a more relaxed opening (owning also a 120 myself, I know that high-speed openings are no problem with that canopy)

But now I want to start using the 107 also for freefall. Before doing an actual jump with it, I would like to hear any experiences..

Jumped one in that size for awhile before they were readily available. Used it for wingsuiting and freefall, no issues. I use 97's now. It's probably gonna feel like it opens a bit quicker at terminal than you're accustomed to but the openings are just as nice and predictable.

Thanks! What's your wingload? and you use a standard slider I guess? (with the 120 we still use the mess-slider, which is OK)

B| having >1500 jumps on a lightning and >500 jumps CF Storm with spider, I know how a quick opening feels ;)

I'm at 1.5 on WL and using a standard slider. The openings might feel similar if not softer/a tad slower if you think your current openings are quick.
