Standard length (didn't need to lengthen), 25" risers and loading at around 2.75:1.

26 inch risers
WL 2.5
+3 inch when I renewed control lines so I can reach laterals without stall when holding

If I slow the flight down, I can get it to stall just at the hip rings on my Wings container. From full flight I can get to full arm's length, but I can't hold it there for very long.

5 inches added to lower steering lines. I fly 24 inch risers and load the canopy anywhere from 2.45 to 2.75 depending on if its a work jump or a competition jump.

+6" on steering lines used to have 7 but pd only goes in 3" increments to make it easier on themselves. 23" risers and loading ~2.4. Don't have long arms just don't like twitchy feeling and like to flare all the way at arms lenght.
ps: I believe comp velo comes with longer steering lines to begin with (may be wrong).

+3 for me.

To make it interesting is anyone runnin different brake line lengths for their accuracy rounds vs speed vs distance? I stay with +3 on the standard velo so the same control length as vc but I know a few guys who are running it shortened/stock standard length on a reg velo on their second canopy weather a size larger or the same for accuracy in order to shut it down more efficiently When needed
