Most Comfortable OTSRs

What do you find to be the most comfortable OTSR? I find B&Ms to be really comfy and Arrow's to be really hard...any input?

V²-Vertical Velocity- I'm off and running! May 5!

B&M's are the most comfy however Arrow is getting better with their OTSR's. The OTSR's on the Tennessee Tornado are most comfy till you get to that snap neck break run.


Flying over metal is a beautiful thing!

It would have to be...Oh gawd...Stealth. They are very comfortable

Best Coaster: Millennium Force
Worst Coaster: Project Stealth

B&M OTS restraints are always said to be better because you never really hit your head on them (which is good by the way) during the ride. But Premier has gone super soft with their OTS restraints and yet, the coaster bangs you up against them.

I like B&M's the best. But I'll also go on the record as saying I HATE OTSR's of all kinds. Result in more safety and thus less thrill, those things...

Most comfortable shoulder bars? What are you smoking? The adjective "comfortable" should never be used to describe the noun "shoulder bar".

S&S space shot OTSRs are by FAR the most comfortable IMO.

DWeaver, I do agree with you on that one. Though, there is not any side to side motion. So of course they will be comfortable.

I agree with DWeaver. S&S Horsecollar restraints are very comfortable. As for the worst, I think Vekoma takes the cake on that one.

Jephry nailed it. Stealth. Those Vekoma "vests" are the BEST thing to happen to upper body restraints, period. Even though Stealth has the Vekoma shake and shimmy, the vests stopped any headbanging before it happened. Awesome. Vekoma should modify those vests to work on all of their rides.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Vekoma will use new OTSR's for they coasters. Look at this photo.

The new Vekoma Sitdown coastertrain. The new SLC coaster will use the same train of the Dejavu coaster, but they will be 2 seats in row.
