    Can't split the Mack lapbars or the B&M Clamshells for best.

    Best are the Mack Mega ones, they're so snug.

    Least favourite has to be the ones you get on S&S rides like El Locos and Slammer where the lap and shoulder section are separate. They dig in hard to your shoulders and they don't look sturdy enough to hold your upper body in place which makes me a bit nervous (even though they always work fine!)

    Special mention goes to the seat belts on Tower of Terror which let your body float outrageously far out of the seat. I also like how on RMC restraints there's nothing to hold on to so you have to sit there with your hands in your lap. Makes it feel much scarier and more exposed.

    Best I've used are the Intamin lapbars.
    Worst...yeah, it's gotta be Vekoma. There's really no contest.

    Best: New-style Mack/Intamin lapbars.
    Worst: Old style Arrow/Vekoma OTSRs. Being tall, I can hardly fit into them and really dig into my shoulders when I do fit.

    Oh yes, the restraints that were designed for midgets. But oddly enough, despite being way too tall for them, I think they make the ride more enjoyable than if I did fit and the shoulder restraints came up to my head. I may have to slouch on arrow loopers, but I'm also spared from headbanging due to my head being above the restraints. Probably explains why I like Viper as much as I do.
