    Sabre2

    I have 50 jumps on my Sabre2 (170) now and it really is a very fun and easy canopy to fly. It flares well, lands well and handles well in strong wind. I have a wing loading of 1.16. It's a great canopy for beginners and if you're becoming a more advanced canopy pilot it is possible to build up that extra speed to put your skills to the test. I do have a problem with off heading openings usually 90 degrees and in both directions. It might also be the way I pack but I see some others are having the same problem. Also my end cells take a long time to inflate if left alone, but pump those brakes once or twice and they open without a problem. All round a very nice canopy with the pros outweighing the cons by far.

    Newbie here!

    Practice Practice Practice!. Getting tunnel time in while your still a student is awesome! I'm in South Africa, we don't have a tunnel here. I'm on my B license now and no tunnel time. Remember to keep that head up and look at he horizon. If you head is up you body goes into an arch naturally. Also don't try and fight the air. let it shape you. But speak to your instructors dude. They will know where you are going wrong. P.S don't get downed by failing levels a couple of times. it's all part of learning process. Safe!
