I have nearly 3,000 jumps on spectres. I love the openings. I was brought up on accuracy canopies, but the spectre gives you all of the benefits without the punishing openings and harsh landings. I can shut it down or do a surge to gain landing speed and bring it in a swoop. This is the best canopy I've ever jumped for someone like me. I view a canopy as a tool to get me to the ground where I want to land. I can bring this in to a tight area or make it back from a long spot. I'm 48 now and this canopy is a blessing to me. I love it. Camera guys, BUY this canopy.
