Subjective canopy question

I realize this is subjective but what canopy with ~1.4 wing loading do you find is best for NO WIND!!  I don't mind ground surfing but hate to run it out.

With 1.4 wing loading that's going to be a toughie. With an accuracy-style and sized canopy, piece of cake. Either take a couple of canopy courses (you can learn how to land better with just about any canopy), or invest in a new container. Or just learn how to PLF; I basically never run out landings any more.

So what I'm asking is, what small canopy has what you think is the best "stop" in no wind.  I'm currently jumping a Sabre3 120 which I love but in switchy winds becomes a runout canopy.  Just wanting a comparison of canopies like Crossfire 3, Sabre 3, Stiletto, etc.

Probably something with more drag and less glide such as a 7 cell. Maybe a Pilot7 or a Spectre?  The down side is less flare power.

 

Personally I liked my Sabre2 landings. I have a Pilot9 and I love the openings, but landings aren't as nice.
