Re: Harness line length
- I also had the same problem some time ago and I agree with everything
It is better to have the ends as close together as possible in order
to have less resistance when moving the bar.
Some people do tie a knot on one of the sides of the usual Naish
stock lines without major hassle (although it does seem a bit crappy)
Anyway the best solution is to find harness lines suitable to your
arms length!!! There are lots of options. I found that 22´´ suit me
