Very interesting topic. Out of my view a waist works really well, when it´s choppy and when you sail on smaller sized Slalom gear. I also prefer the waist, because when I freeride or sail in waves or do freestyle, I always use a waist. The legs feels o free.
Guess it´s perhaps better for light sailors as well. Not sure. I use a T3 with sliding hook.
Many top guys use waist on the PWA tour like Kevin, Ross or Ben. Björn, Antoine or Cyril are always on seat.
