While Im not expert. I can share my experience with you none the less.
I have jumped both in 190. About 10 jumps on each.
The pilot has a very comfortable opening but takes about 800 ft to be slider down and in the saddle. Without getting on rears it barely got me back from a long spot into the wind. It was awesome in turns and the flare was the best flare for my tastes out of the canopies I have demo'd(Sabre 2, Pulse, Storm, Spectre)
The pulse had very comfortable openings as well. They were much faster though. Which I liked alot.
Turns were comparable to the pilot but with a little lighter toggle pressure. This thing flys forever and I really appreciate it being that Im mostly always the last or close to last out. The Flare was nice but I prefer the pilots flare. This thing packs really small. and is super easy to work with.
I really like both canopies and cant say anything bad about either.
