Experience shows that high-performing canopies like Snake and Hadron are easier to steer with a „low" or "medium" hangpoint system.
"High" hangpoints, especially "soft" ones (i.e. not connected to the paramotor mainframe) can, due to their inertia, make the control of an agile canopy significantly harder, while possibility of a quick pilot reaction during dynamic sport flying is a must.

Additionally, increased distance to the risers makes it harder to operate and control all the systems.

On the other hand, "high" hangpoints are doing great in recreational flights under such paragliders as Nucleon, Synthesis or Universal. Of course if a pilot is experienced enough to fly advanced wings of the Snake and Hadron class and has no use for dynamic maneuvers at the moment, he can deem the high hangpoints as offering greater stability and comfort when sight-seeing. Nevertheless, even during such flying ensuring quick pilot reactions and effective control of the accesories is vital.

To sum it up: when flying smaller canopies (22qm and less) and bigger aspect ratio (5,9 and above) it is recommended to use „low" or "medium" hangpoint systems (that is up to the shoulders).
