Default RV-7/Citabria parachute

Lot's of good advice in the RV-8 parachute discussion, but now with a twist...

Currently flying a Citabria, with an RV-7 years from completion. Any thoughts/tips on parachutes that may be compatible with both aircraft? And is there any good place to buy used? (155lb pilot, pax could vary...)

Thanks,

John

I have one in your weight range, I?ve never used. I?m a bit heavier. I paid $1,800, make a reasonable offer privately. If your interested PM or email and I will send pictures and info.

Did you ever sell that parachute? I have a -8 and I'm considering a parachute for when I fly formation and soft acro.
