    Get a properly sized container with a properly sized reserve and you will like your purchase. Get it with the Boost option also. On my reserve ride I thought my reserve didn't come out because it happened so fast thanks to the boost.
  2. Blis, I went with the two soft handles for an unique reason. I am in the Navy and I take my rig on deployment with me. When you walk around an active duty ship there are LOTS of snag hazards that will grab a metal reserve handle in a heartbeat. Pillows don't get caught. Now that I won't be on ships anymore I might reverse my opinion.

    I have about 100 jumps on this canopy now. I found the openings to be interesting. It seemed that it was always searching for its heading and the end cells were late to inflate. I started Psycho packing it and rolling the 1-4 and 6-9 cells away from the center cell and that has resulted in on heading openings. You really have to pay attention to the slider when you are packing. If it doesn't stay fully in the pack job you will know it with a rather abrupt opening. Very responsive on front and rear risers. I do a carving 90 into final carrying a lot of speed into the flare and the flare power is impressive. All in all this is a great canopy. I am loading this at 1.1 : 1.

    The instructions were very difficult to follow and when I did get it setup I was not sure how I did it so I don't dare change anything. I have the feeling that this could be a very good unit if it had the supporting documentation.
