    Hi Jim,

    Almost everyone has them, very few have inertia reels fitted.

    I am not sure if its 'most' but many do. Most Pilgrims and Crendons run inertia reels.
    if you are referring to harnesses, then be careful about submarining if you don't fit a crotch strap - can get nasty in a crash.

    Is this what you mean as I’ve seen a few used but no idea of their legality.https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p...yABEgL50vD_BwE

    I've used the above 4 point harnesses in a couple of Cobras.
    IVA and comfort OK.

    My srv8 has thee point inertia's fitted and find that they give a bit more freedom than four or five point types.
    I only use mine for normalish road use but do understand the reasons for using harness types and have a set of
    four points sitting in my garage if so desired .
