    Harness vs Front Riser HP turns

    I've been doing 450's for a long time now. Last year, I wanted to try out only harness to explore the difference. I think I ended up doing 200 jumps with harness only. I'm jumping a HK-75(WL 2.6) and a HKT-69 (WL 2.9). Front riser turns: Gave me a much faster dive. Sometimes at Pink Open, it can get turbolent. And sometimes so much, that I couldn't hold my front risers down thoughout the dive, ruining the dive. Harness only: A much flatter a searching dive. I was doing the turn too slow though. And when I was speeding up the turn in general, I found it hard to get enough speed for the rollout-power to be efficient. It's quite comfortable though. You just chill and turn, giving your brain peace for concentration(no mucles needed, pretty much). At the moment, I wanna go back to 450 with fronts, or go to 630 only harness. At times, I would get the SAME horizontal speed on the 75(WL 2.6) with fronts, compared to the 69(WL 2.9) with harness only. As far as Setup: Fronts: Easy. You don't travel as much in the dive. You don't have to account for drift in the turn as much. Harness: Semi-Hard. You have to start the turn further out, and you travel a bit more forcing you to really read the winds and try to calculate the drift in the turn. So my conclussion was: Harness only = less speed and power through the gates. Hard setup. Easy to turn. Needs a bigger turn, or I simply need more training to adjust(faster turn). Fronts = More speed and power through the gates. Easy setup. Hard in turbolence.
