  1. this delivers , um students and newer jumpers should be either standing up running or doing a plf on landing, if you need body armour to land your parachute you need a upsize
  2. how have your openings been, when jumping my KA150 i found the openings to be quite soft and long, when packing i just did the normal pro pack from pd and still had quite long openings that were buttery soft, even doing small changes it made no difference, apart from one time when i tugged on the rears just after line stretch which pretty much cracked it open and i decided to accept the longer openings and leave it alone.
  3. the higher the performance canopy you want to fly the higher you need to deploy, that is what i have found from taking to canopy pilots over the years.
  4. @hapon what did you end up in choosing, the Katana is a great wing still to this day if your focus is on swooping and canopy piloting but demands a lot of respect. also, from what i have been told, moving from a Katana 135 to a 120 is quite step up in performance.
  5. Sabre 3's anyone jumped them or bought them yet, they look great from the videos, whats everyone thoughts ?
  6. i have friends that are TM's and they say its affected tandems numbers in Australia
  7. I didn't like my old cf2 for doing 90's as it would pull out of the dive quite abrupt and then lose a lot of energy, but for everything else it was awesome, sabre 2 was better in my opinion for 90's and katana was even better but im currently jumping a sabre 2 at 1.5 and I find its great.
  8. Katana's require a lot more attention to body position during opening and can take off diving and go into line twists quite easy, Sabre 2's would be a lot less stress to deal with vs a Katana that's my experience. if you love the Storm your renting then why not buy one they are a great canopy, I cant comment on the Gangster as I haven't jumped that class of canopy but canopy's that are cross braced are generally reserved for serious swoopers with 800/1000+ jumps and much higher wing loadings. 500lbs lines would be thinner and have less drag but as a result take less weight. I would be speaking with your local or nearest canopy coach, and sign up for canopy course.
  9. why don't you like a sabre 2 they are a great canopy? is there a DZ with a canopy coach near by that you could get some coaching/advise from what canopy do you fly now
  10. topspark101 summed it up nice, Valkyrie is like a Leia which is recommended to have around 1500 jumps and bunch of other requirements before jumping one and pd will find you to jump the Peregrine so you cant put in a order as such NZ Aerosports has rough guide lines on experience levels and what you should be jumping yes the cross-bracing is to make the wing more rigid to handle a higher wing loading. There is a great video on YouTube at a BPA conference on canopy designs ect https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK2_yQ_A9Fc
  11. well I reckon this forum is great, Facebook is a joke as a whole, all this place needs is just a bit of effort to kick off the discussions again. I bought my reserve off here for a good price and seller was great to deal with and went above and beyond for helping me get it shipped to another country.
  12. safire 1 for me was the nicest and softest opening canopy, are you slowing down and washing speed off before pitching
  13. Sabre 2's are a great canopy, you should speak with a canopy coach and get some coaching.
