    Is that why you're posting with an anonymous profile?

    Will we see more "Air Locks" on the market?

    I really liked my Samurai also, but would be surprised if such a valve is used again in a production canopy. There are other ways to produce the same small increases in rigidity and stability that the Samurai provides.

    129 in a vector 3 319

    It may be tight, but I had a Samurai 120 in mine and it fit fine -- airlocks included. Can you get a demo Xfire? The Neos 109 was crazy tight! Don't recommend that.

    What canopy should I choose to fly next?

    Why downsize? Have you jumped a smaller canopy in the same conditions? Did it actually help? Sounds like you'll have plenty of time to demo. PD makes it very easy... http://www.performancedesigns.com/demo_sport.asp

    Broken Line - Flight Characteristics

    Couple of years ago on a Samurai 120 @ 1.85 ... broken C line at attachment point. It was easy to see the line trailing behind me, but I did not notice a difference in performance. FWIW: it was a conservative landing. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=2313855;search_string=broken%20c%20line;#2313855

    Start freeflying

    Whatever position your coach / instructor prescribes. [opinion]If you spend any time in a tunnel, you should work on your back-flying first, but that may depend on the tunnel and who you're working with. It's a valuable skill either way.[/opinion]
