Anyone try the Necksgen yet?

I am still trying to decide what head restraint to buy. The Necksgen seems to have better clearance to the rear which has been an issue with the Hans. I put in a new seat this year but rear helmet clearance is still tight but doable with the Hans but would be better with the Necksgen.

Anyone else using one of these yet?

I don't have the REV, I have the original design, and really like it. What you describe is weird. Looking at the pics on the web, the tether doesn't look that different dimensionally from what I have.
It DOES look like they can offer a different length tether. did you see this?

I moved it to an old helmet with lower mounts and it was getting closer. Not at all happy with the tether through the hard edged connector as the "slide" point. Crude, course and easily improved (by them).

But, glad to hear that someone is pleased with theirs, I look forward to a less annoying and cumbersome device that still works.

I switched midway through last season from my original Hans to the Rev NecksGen. I, too, leave the HnR attached to the helmet, put on helmet and slide into the car (Halo seat) and belt in.
I feel a little more direct pressure on my collar bones/chest from the shoulder harnesses than w/Hans due to the shorter reach of the framework but that's the only real difference in feel that I notice.
The range of motion turning my head for visibility seems similar between the two and the side to side movement is more limited w/NecksGen (as expected).
IMO, you can't go wrong with either choice, the NG is just a little lighter, goes on a little more easily and takes up a smaller footprint in the bag.
