1.36 wingload with 200+ jumps - too aggressive?


Posted (edited)

Hi There,

My new Vector v310 with an installed Sabre 135 just arrived:halo:.

I currently jump a Safire149 (1.26 wingload) and feel very comfortable flying it (crosswind, downwind etc...).

The question now is if it would be safe for me to jump my new complete system with the installed Sabre 135 ([email protected]) or if I should replace it with my current 149.

I will ask my coach again but just wondered what you guys think if downsizing to a 135 would be too aggressive with my 210 jumps...?

Thanks so much!

I'd ask a canopy coach to evaluate you.

There are people with thousands of jumps who shouldn't be jumping a 1.38 WL, and people with 50 who could handle it with ease.
