    Spectre

    I am currently flying a Spectre 190. I find the Spectre a superior canopy. It is very responsive to toggle and harness inputs. It recovers very nicely from toggle stalls and resists line twists in aggressive turn reversals. My accuracy increased greatly when I switched. I find the flare powerful even on no wind days. I highly recommend the Spectre. Definately try one before you buy another.

    New skydiver Jumpsuit advice needed please

    Buy a Merlin Suit. I got mine in 3 weeks. Christine's attention to detail was superb. It fit great. Had a less than perfect landing last week and tore the knee. (stood up then a gust got the canopy and pulled me over) The repair took an hour (can't even tell it's been repaired). I could have picked it up the next day but, waited till the next weekend. The charge was very reasonable. Double kudos to Christine and PJ from Merlin Too new to give any advice on the type of suit. Mine is a slightly baggy RW suit with no booties. It is comfortable. I have done RW and tracking with good results. I chose to buy for comfort and fit reasons.
