OSP vs OSP2 sub-teminal openings
For those people that have jumped both canopies Slider Up sub-terminal. Are the any differences in how fast they open?
OSP2 seems to be made more like an all-around canopy, so I'm wondering if it'll open slower on sub-terminal SU jumps. Personally I loved taking OSP to SU sub-terminal, because there wasn't much snivel / possibility for off-heading.

If you’re just looking to soften the openings a bit you should look into what Sean Chuma is doing at the Perrine. He has a “slider” which is really just and X of load tape/webbing with a grommet at each of the 4 tips. Basically a thong slider, no mesh, just enough to hold the lines together. Slows the openings down enough for doing thousands of deep delays at the bridge with still exceptional heading performance.

I have messaged Sean about that
Yeah it’s sometimes called an x slider. I have been using it for a couple years on stuff about as high as the bridge. It’s good for 2-3 sec delays. I use it cuz slider down is hard on my neck. It only works with spectra lines. With Dacron you still get sniveles and off heading openings like a normal short slider up delay. With spectra it still can open off heading and can snivel inconsistently. I dint jump cliffs too ouch with it but have a few times.
