I have about 60 jumps on my spectre 190 loaded at 1.2 (ish).
I bought my spectre 190 because of being slapped around by other canopies and having a severe spine problem.
Openings: I've had some line twists, but only when other people packed it. I've done some "hasty" packs on it and ended up with a nice square canopy above my head every time. It has a very nice long and very snivel that is very forgiving on your spine, but if you don't have a skyhook you might want to ask you local instructors if you should go directly on your reserve if you jump below 2.5k.
On my canopy (sh with 1k+ jumps), I get off heading openings if I don't tuck the folds from one side with the folds from the other side when propacking. If I don't do this (or do it sloppy), I get turns from 0 to 180.
Flare: not great, but not bad. You should be able to land it quite safely on low experience (50 jumps), but listen to your (thosand jumps +) mates on the DZ on this.
Glide ratio: spectres are ground hungry ... I've had the chance to jump a saffire 2 189 and the time spent in the air is definitely shorter on the spectre.
Swoops: not my cup of tea and doubtfull you'd be able to win any prize on this.
