  1. Here's where I'm confused. On the sunbath site manuals. It says for the container I'm getting. ZP Main canopy. 190 Hybrid F-111/ZP Main canopy 210. Low bulk 210. The Sabre 2 210 says it's all ZP fabric. So where I'm confused is does this fall under the needs to be 190 or 210. ??? I guess if I'm reading it right. A Sabre 2 would fall under the ZP canopy meaning it can't be a 210. Has to be a 190. I'm good with that. I'll shut up and just jump. Lol
  2. Wow. I have to say just by reading these responses I have learned a lot and this tells me how new I really am. I had No idea that the size of the main could have anything to do with the quality of deployment of the reserve. I was already convinced that I’m going to stick with a 210 low bulk like Sunpath says and then use whatever at the 190 size but you guys opened my eyes. Thank you again for the responses. Reason I asked is cuz I wanna be safe. Thank you.
  3. I do trust them. I’m a newbie also and just asking questions. That way. I don’t do the wrong thing. I trust you guys more than I trust a Manufacturer recommendation. They are in it for the money.
  4. Thank you for commenting. I definitely don’t want to take any risks. That’s why I asked. So as for now. I’ll put a 210 Low bulk in there and when I’m ready for a 190 down the road. Then I can use a Sabre. Thank you again.
  5. Getting a new Javelin J4K. can I put a Sabre 2 210 in it ? I could be wrong but that's Not a low bulk canopy and Manufacturer specs says only a low bulk 210 can be put in it. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Yeah. I’m just going to go by the Pro Shop recognition which is hat you guys were saying. Putting any canopy Low bulk or not two sizes is too much.
  7. I was told by a Rigger that a LOW Bulk canopy like a pulse would fit two sizes up. So saying a 210 LOW Bulk canopy can fit in a 170 container. Do you Not agree ? Cuz I guess the low bulk Canopy folds down smaller than a normal size.
  8. Well After more thought and talking extisivly with the Dealer. She is super honest become she coulda had my money today but she offered to have me do a demo first. So I have been Flying a 260 & 240 nav. I’m going to get a few more jumps in with my Instructor and then demo a 230 Pilot ZPX. Earlier when I said I was gonna stick a 230 into a 190 container. I’m not doing that. I’m going to do the recommendation form the pro shop
  9. Bob. Not offended at all. I’m a newbie so I don’t know half of what I’m saying. I’m just going by what I see others doing and what size they are and size rigs.
  10. what I have come to and you can tell me If this sounds good or not. But a new Javelin container for a 190. With a 190 reserve. And demo main canopies starting with a low bulk pulse 230. Correct me if I’m wrong but a pulse 230 is kinda where I’m at now. So down the road I’ll be able to downsize
  11. Thank you Tim. Well. I definitely don’t want to brake my legs. So right now my two options are get the used Rig with the 240 or get a wings container with a pulse 210 and can eventually go down to a 190. I’m already signed up to do two Canopy courses next month.
  12. Just finished AFF two weeks ago. I’m now at 45 jumps. Started AFF at 237 lbs. Flying a 300. I’m now 221 lbs. Then a 280, 260 and flew a 240 twice. Didn’t seem any different to me than the 260. I have a chance to buy a rig with a 240 nav. I know I’ll eventually get to a 190 but don’t wanna keep renting since I’ll nothing to show for it in the end. What size should I be looking for ? Am i waisting my money on the 240 ? Should I go lower ? All opinions are appreciated than you.
