Safire 2 - 119 sq.ft. Apr/2006 It is in great shape! I'm sending it on soft links. Still crispy and slippery to pack. Well taken care of. Approximately 450 jumps. No patches or holes. Great openings and very responsive on landings. It looks great in the sky! Gray top skin and green bottom with yellow ribs and stabilizers.

I recently started jumping a Safire 2 189, and it snivels for a long time. On my last jump, I pitched at 4500' and it wasn't fully open until 2900'. I have read that this kind of canopy can snivel for a bit, but I'm wondering if using a smaller slider would help with quicker openings. The current slider I'm using is pretty huge, and I have ordered a smaller one from Icarus in the hopes that my openings won't take so long and make me clutch the cutaway handle. Will using a smaller slider help with quicker openings? How much of this depends on the slider, and how much depends on the canopy? I'd rather not have to change my packing technique, but I will if there are no more options left. Thanks in advance.
