I was very seriously considering an ATC2 for my WS purchase this winter. I seem to have a bit more time on my hands these days which has had me do more looking, reading, sleeping and even household chores. Not that anyone cares about the other shit.... Squirrels site has the ATC2 as a pretty good all around canopy that includes some good range to fly with big suits, and a good BASE suit as well. PF site it seems like the Strix may be a bit better than the Carve 20, however I don't have enough WS jumps for the Strix yet and not sure if I will take either into the BASE environment anytime soon. I am flying a Funk/2 at the moment and have been focusing on doing coach jumps to get my skills up so I feel more comfortable flying with other people. I had plans of every other weekend travelling to different DZ's in the north north/east to get coaching and spending the other weekends jumping to practice what I had learned. My chances of any WS BASE in general are slim as there just arent objects close by for this to happen and I need some more overall big wall experience and many more WS skydives before I consider it. XRW is something that is probably more realistic and inline with the shorter/mid term goals. So I think the first question really is can both the ATC2 and Carve20 be used for this? If the Strix is a better option should I just wait a few months (depending of course when we can start to get back to normal) and keep jumping the Funk, or is the Carve 20 or ATC2 going to be a better option. EDITED: I forgot to mention I am not opposed to going to the tunnel once travelling is a realistic option again. Obviously given current conditions I am not in any huge rush but would like to get the suit ordered in the next few weeks. Thanks for any input into this.
