Re: Rapid Pluse Back Band
Posted by Dave Houser on Apr 27, 2007
The higher the screws are located, that attach the webbing, the higher the back band will be. The backband will not stay up if the webbing runs downhill to the attachment points no matter what you do with the bungees behind the backband. I screw mine up through the deck into the coaming spacers but my deck is lower than most CLC designs. I do not even install the cheek plates for the hip pads and rely on a carved minicell seat and good knee hooks and footbraces to lock myself into the cockpit.
Legs typically go to sleep from too much pressure on your sit bones. So be sure the perimeter of you seat, especially under you thighs, is supporting your weight and not just the bones in your butt cheeks.
