Crossfire 2 vs Sabre 2

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain the difference in flight characteristics between Sabre 2 and Crossfire 2? I'm no stranger to Sabre 2's. I've put roughly 200 jumps on the Sabre 2's I currently have. (150 and 170) I will downsize at some point in the future and just wondering how the Crossfire 2 compares to Sabre 2?

Thanks a bunch.

Square 1 preaches that you should never try a new canopy AND downsize at the same time (in fact they don't allow it). You do one or the other. That would be an especially good idea here because the Crossfire 2 (or the newer 3) is a fully elliptical canopy. The Sabre 2 is a semi elliptical "medium" performing canopy, so when you go Crossfire you're going to get more performance right off the bat with the same size. You need to be more careful with a full elliptical. Don't be in such a hurry - and get some solid coaching.

Thanks. I actually talked with several much more experienced folks than myself over the weekend..who gave me similar advice. I have a friend who is going to let me demo his Crossfire 3 149 which is roughly the same size as my Sabre2 150. He said the same thing you did. Get to know the different canopy then later on decide about moving down. Who knows?  I may just end up sticking with what I've got.
