Default Throne design

I looking into a new throne and got to thinking about the designs available. Certainly a larger seat will be better. The "tractor" shaped seats look comfortable but for heel up players wouldn't it be better to extend support further towards the knee (sloping down slightly to avoid shutting of circulation)? Sorta the opposite of the tractor design. Does anyone make a throne like this?

I think you might find that instead of offering helpful support, the leg extensions will actually hinder circulation in your legs.

I agree with Al. No scientific info, but I believe that the part of your body that needs support would be your tailbone.

You all might be right. Perhaps I'm over reacting against the tiny seat of my current throne.

I think the only thing a throne like that does is to give some extra space for a gigantic ballsack.

This is a cool design, tho you can tilt any throne forward by putting shims under the legs, would've been nice to have a flat option with that GIBRALTAR.

Smaller is better when it comes to throne tops IMO, yes more leg movement, less pinching.
