    Petra vs. Sofia

    Petra page? Is that a post or a specific page I am not aware of? I don't own either wing. In the process of deciding which to order. I have only flown Sofia, but I will have a slightly larger Petra to try out from a friend soon. Have been talking with a few knowledgeable people on the subject since I posted this and got some solid feedback. I saw on your profile you fly a Petra, do you do XRW with it? If so, what loading do you generally run and do you run any modifications on the Petra (lineset, trim etc.)? I really am interested in hearing from everyone.

    I was told that 60 is the cut off point. The sub 60's are for special people only I guess. Just did a few jumps yesterday on a Sofia 64 with just under 40lbs of lead on getting me to 3.4WL. The freaks were quite happy with that. My body at the end of the day, not so much.

    Petra vs. Sofia

    Yeah, easier for big guys to do that. I'm roughly 180lbs out the door, so even on the smallest canopy sizes I have to put on a fair amount of lead to load up. I have no jumps on Petra's but on one of my first jumps on a Sofia loaded at under 2.8 I was able to fly with someone in a Freak. So the steepness can be a benefit to avoid having to haul serious lead. But that's why I am posting. Interested to hear from those with Petra's.

    Basically Sofia is steeper. Wingsuiters prefer the forward speed of the Petra but the sink of the Sofia. The guy I was talking with from NZ said if he was doing only XRW he would use a Sofia. Didn't go into a whole lot of detail.

    Looking for opinions on the Petra vs the Sofia from those who have flown them. Differences, similarities etc. I have already talked a bit with NZ about both wings but I am curious what others have to say about how they fly at different WL's in the XRW environment. Trying to decide on which one to get.

    I have one of their shorty freefly suits. Haven't had a chance to fly it yet but the fit and build quality both seem good. For reference, I got mine as a tight fit. Some pics of my suit in the link. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wo3qra9koqtz4b4/AACnbk7uvJ_OMf1k22qyo6Fka?dl=0
