  A Grumman yoke worked
  Posted by: ezwater on Mar-25-13 12:42 PM (EST)

pretty well for our 85# Moore, and its simple design made for safety in getting the yoke up on my shoulders. I also tried a highly shaped and dished Mad River yoke, but it did not rest right on my shoulders, and the narrow neck slot made entry seem a bit unsafe.

Now we have a 48# Bluewater tandem, with a shaped flat yoke. At its lighter weight, just adding a shaped pad was all I had to do. There is some flex or bounce that I find a bit disconcerting. I'd like less flex, and may add some carbon along the length of the yoke arms to stiffen it.
