There are a number of those things that are rarely practiced anymore, such as team members flying on different length lines so they don't collide with each other thus can stand next to each other.
I remember back in the old days that some had suggested to me that not all four lines needed to be the same weight. Meaning that you could fly with say 150# line on the top and 90# on the bottom. The key was the stronger line was always on top. Is this still a working theory? Reason back then was that the bottom lines being lighter would allow better or easier flight in reverse. Also dropped overall line weight. Just curious.
All have their goods and bads.
