The lightly-tapered 7-cell Spectre is one of the most popular canopies PD has ever produced. A surprisingly flat glide and soft on-heading openings (with plenty of snivel!) make the Spectre the canopy of choice for the professional cameraman or the everyday wingsuiter. The Spectre is also known for its smooth, progressive response on the toggles. If your priority is predictability, the Spectre is your canopy.

My Spectre is loaded at about 1.2:1. Overall it is a nice canopy. I have been shooting video most of my recent jumps, and this canopy has wonderfull openings... nice and soft. When it was new it was not uncommon to get 1,000 foot snivels, but after I put about 100 jumps on it the openings started cosistianly taking 500-600 ft. Im not sure if it just needed to be broken in or if I learned to pack it right. Plan to pull high if you are going to demo one.

The first 50 pack jobs were a pain in the *ss. PDs ZP fabric is slippery as snot when it is new, but gets better with age. Flight is ok. Riser pressure is not too high. Very stable in turbulence. Forward speed on landing is a lot faster than a Triathalon at a similar loading. Nice canopy for camera flyers, or someone that wants something hotter than a Sabre but is not ready for a Stiletto.

This canopy is a totally sweet. Openings are soft and on heading. Great stability in wind and all around canopy flight. You can mad swoop or just do a nice soft and easy landing whatever YOU choose. Packs itself, basically.

I jumped the Spectre 190 over the weekend and I must say I was totally impressed. Not only does it open very smooth and soft, but it handles like a dream. I was a little concerned about landing a 7 cell, but after this weekend I won't dare look at anything else (atleast not for awhile anyways). The Spectre is incredible canopy...if you haven't tried it yet, then you owe it to yourself to call PD for a demo. You won't be dissapointed. Blue skies to all....

Very soft openings, excelent for the beginer that wants to experiment flying cameras; glide ratio ok. You will feel lucky if you ever get caught pulling without slowing down after a freefly jump. You can load it, turf it and surf it. Very stable on turbulence.
