I am looking for a sky angle because they pack well and with the side skirts I can get away with using a smaller chute. The feet per sec is around 19 for the rocket i have in mind. Fins are 1/8 inch and I have had a tendency to break those.

Recon is a brand that Wildman developed, I believe, to fill the void while there was some sourcing difficulties with SkyAngle. They are both "teacup" designs. Both are very good parachutes.

Basically if you did not see any labels on the chutes could you tell which one is a sky angle? Is recon a "copy"? I am just wondering.
