    Turbo ZX

    Sorry guys I see you all wrote good openings. I got 50 jumps on my 165 loaded 1.1 and im loving it except for the whacks - I'm getting close to a new line set so that affects it a lot. Great front riser turns hardly any pressure till you hit the 270 degree point and if you do overcook the landing the canopy has a whole lotta lift at the end. End flare for me on this is usually a punch it out rather than a 1,2,3 - due to my overcook'ings and i usually end up between 10 and 15 foot back up. I also put 20 jumps on a Turbo ZX 185 before i got the 165. Had only soft openings on that and pretty much the same over all as the 165 but with allowances for the size difference . Overall this is a fast canopy with a great glide ratio and great toggle response. Thumbs up from me.
