THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!
I love this canopy. My third spectre 170 as they just are all around great. The dacron is amazing material for lines if your not swooping. I just bought this custom color and factory dacron spectre 170 just a few months ago and got it this year ... but I decided I need upsizing to slow my landings....after a few years of faster landings on smooth grass, I am moving to more wingsuiting and some off site rougher terrain landing adventures so I am upsizing so I can slow landings down. My new larger canopy is here so you are buying a canopy that is practically brand new and with amazing custom colors. Comes fully inspected and packaged by one of the best riggers in the southwest. He is well known so you can have some confidence in his assessments. I paid $2,521.00 to Squre 1 at perris to order it for me and can show you the receipts. I am in San Diego for the next month. Blue Skies!
- FOR SALE
Hello, I'm new in this sport and I want to have a canopy for beginners ;-) - it shall be my first own canopy - so it has to be user-friendly. I'm looking for a canopy I can concentrate on. Last year I landed a little bit hard on my botty in my first jumps and got a disc prolapse (with a Navigator). That's why I'm looking for a canopy with soft und smooth openings and soft, calm landings. I'm not interested and I know that I never will be interested to get lot of speed or do swoop. I'd like to do Freefly in the air, maybe in combination with a little bit Freestyle. And I like cross-country flying. The canopy shall bring me safely to the ground - "trouble-free" and with good stability That's why I think the triathlon and the spectre (220 or 210) are the canopys for my interests (My wight: 74 Kg = 163 ilb). Like a lot of other beginner-women I have problems to see, when it is the right moment to flare (I learned 2-stage-flare: half and than full) - especially in no wind conditution. So I often flare to high or to low. I'm not interested in downsizing and get speed. I want a save canopy to fly for lots of years. I love the slow demonstration-landings... What do you think, which canopy is better for me? What are the advantages und disadvantages of both canopies?
