I have also moved the seat back support straps to next rearward saddles to give me more movement for twisting and seating side saddle

I like that seating too you could still retro fit Like I have done to my Ultra 4.7
The new seating position in the trident is on a higher angle now they may of thought this way would be better ? I for one are really happy with the new style :y:

One of the biggest complaints with the old one is "that" seat. its not overly comfortable for long periods. its flat and your butt is below your feet. so while some like it most dont.

MadMike,

i guess everyone's ass is different... lol?
i find that the NZ seat offers more cushion over the fabric slipping seat that my 4.3 came with.

Cushioning and paddle position are two different things. the latter comes into play for longer paddle duration's where the earlier has more of an instant effect.

I sat on mine for 11 - 11.5 hours with out a break doing a local Snapper comp back on the 31st of Oct and think these are pretty good
the aluminium back rest support bend though - I replaced mine with one made of 3 mm think stainless ( just copied the aly one )
and that has not been a problem since
