These are great chutes, I have one, and they are very tough. A little bulky but the toughest chute I own. I've hit mine with a high speed deployment that shredded another chute involved, and it was fine.

Just my 2 cents. I don't know the seller, but I recognized the chute and had to talk it up. Unfortunately for him I'm not in the market for another one at the moment...

AeroCon had these a while back. I believe that they have a higher Cd because of the semi-balute shape. I think that I remember readint that they comes down straighter because of the vent hole in the top, and the ones at the sides.

Yes, no spinning, no swaying, nice and straight. Have one that I got from Aerocon a while back. Ya need a fairly large payload section, and about a 10lb rocket, to use it. It fills about 8 inches of 7.5" LOC tube without the d-bag. Not sure it could be folded to fit in a 4" tube, but I have never tried.
