Direferences or Improvements between FLIK and FLIK II Can't Post

Hi, i am thinking in ordering a new canopy for SD jumps.........Any owner of FLIK II could advise me on if there are notable differences or improvements between FLIK and FLIK II?

I have a FLIK with about 300 jumps on it.

Thank you so much !!!

In short:

The FLiK II is a more efficient wing than the FLiK.

It's the same basic platform with cleaned up aerodynamics (primarily on the nose and top surface) giving it better performance in all areas and more power in the controls.

If you're comfortable on the FLiK, the FLiK II will immediately feel meaningfully improved, yet familiar.

Honestly, from my point of view they're totally different canopies.

The Flik II has a much wider range, better sink, and better flare.

I never really liked the original Flik (I liked the old FOX better for sure), but the Flik II is, in my opinion, the best canopy Apex has ever made.
