Advice on trimmers please

Recommended Posts

I have an old Apco Vista which I used for free flying on and off for about 10 years. Now I'm converted to paramotoring I discovered that as my hang points are high on my motor, I'm reaching up high with my arms which is uncomfortable. 

My options are to cheaply have a pulley sewn on the bottom end of the existing risers - which solves the position of the brakes, but doesn't change the speed, or

Invest about £200 in a new set of trimmer-risers which I could get from Apco and fit them on - which solves the brakes and the speed.

What do you think I should do? Will trimmers really give me more speed? Will I be able to squeeze another year or two out of this wing?
