  Just to clarify

I experience the drag after, not before, I am completely upside down, at the point when I initiate the movement to get to the set up from the upside down position. Momentum has nothing to do with it in this case, nor am I hanging up upon immersion (I get upside down as fast as I would in a drytop). It is as if there were very light weights on my shoulder, which I assume now to be caused by the air in the suit, since it is at the shoulder that the suit has the most room. It goes away only after I initiate movement to tuck, after a slight lag in time. Just something to think about, i.e. the difference between a drytop and drysuit, especially for those of us in the south who might not have the need to use a drysuit very often. Another possibility is that the suit is slightly too large for me.
