New Prototype NZ Aerosports 'Petra-lite'

Recommended Posts

47 week approximate lead time. I'm just going to pay and put the memory of ordering out of mind. It will be like a surprise birthday party when it shows up.

"What!!! A JPX Leia? Who got me the canopy?"



Edit to add: Fuck Yeah!!!

That's better.

I think they are being super conservative with lead times as to not piss anyone off with late delivery, this is not official by any means just an observation.

I ordered mine about 5-6 weeks ago and was told there would be a 20-25 week waiting time.

I was told yesterday that it will be ready in about 3 weeks as it is already cut and reinforced.

Definitely worth the wait.

Oh I don't mind.

I ordered mine an hour after the ordering went live. I made a change, then changed it back. That might have put it to the end of the line due to the changes, or, it's just a conservative estimate like you said.

I was told to put it as a new order and reference the old one but the first one may have been lost. Regardless, some random month from now, it will be like a birthday present.

More practice on my current canopy isn't going to hurt anything so waiting is likely a good thing. :)

What size did you first order and what size did you change to and change back from?

What do you jump now?

I first ordered a 74, then changed to 72, then jumped a 72 and then changed to a 69 (hybrid)...

I ordered mine even before they announced the count down... :P

After demoing one I 'needed' to order immediately.

Have you jumped one?

I have not jumped one.

I currently jump a 70 JVX and ordered a 68 hybrid. I considered something smaller but 68 seemed reasonable to me.

I can assume between a 175 and 180 pound exit weight.

Edit: I ordered my JVX without ever jumping one too. It was the best canopy decision I had made. At first I was worried a little by the size until the first opening. Within about 5 seconds, all was right with the world.

How does the pack volume for the Hybrid Leia compare to an all ZP JVX?

The FAQ says 5 to 7 feet larger for the Hybrid, but that's in reference to a ZP Leia.

Thanks

Hey, a hybrid Leia will pack up a little larger than an all zp JVX.

Cheers.

Chris.
