  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. safire 1 for me was the nicest and softest opening canopy, are you slowing down and washing speed off before pitching
  6. Sabre 2's are a great canopy, you should speak with a canopy coach and get some coaching.
