Sigma/Icarus/A2 mains

Sigma/Icarus/A2 mains

I did a search but I only found old topics regarding differences of performance between these mains.

I'm looking for opinions from instructors/DZOs that had real experience with the 3 models, Pros & Cons. Openings/flight/flare.

 

Thanks in advance

Jumped all of them. HOP330, or even better HOP300!! Sigma is also good, but other two can't even compare with it on any level. Personal opinion

It's been a while but my opinion is Hop plus turbulence equals death. 6ooo jumps on Icarus and they are bullet proof - bullet proof. Can't comment on the others cause I haven't jumped them.

sigma 340 is the most stable tandem canopy out there. 

I tend to agree with you.

I grab the Strong with a SET366 first because the majority of my tandem jumps have been on that exact setup, but I really like the Sigma 340 and that would always be my second choice.

I don't like the A2's, I think they fly lousy in turbulence and I don't like the way they are prone to go through very pronounced unintended flight cycles. Too flat for my liking, and I think that is what contributes to the flight characteristics that I don't like.
