    Sunny Leicester-by-the-sea(ish)

    Harness is pretty loose - any looser and I could fit my buddy in there with me

    Tanks? Maybe - but not sure I'd be able to move them up much without my head being in the way....

    Looking at the wind I expect we will be playing about at this in the quarry this weekend. Like you I have my tanks set high up, but now thinking I need to drop them down....

    (I hope this is like riding a bike and once you have got the hang of it it starts to be easy....)

    That's how mine are set...

    Edit: I can reach right and isolator valves fine (ish - not withstanding the need for lots more practice) - just the left that challenges me...

    Photograph it or better yet, video. PM me if you fancy using the pool session (bring a buddy with a video camera or if you ask, we might be able to spare someone to video you or offer some advice).

    If you (or anyone) want to post a video I can probably tell you what’s wrong and how to fix it. Warning though as it’s not a professional setting I’ll be “direct” (but not rude). I’d need a side and front view video
