HANS 0, 10, 20, 30 degree?

Installed my Recaro Profi SPG, looking at HANS purchase and not sure what degree I should get? I think one of the Recaro docs suggest 20-30 degree ... seems to be many different size/angle options for HANS.

Trying one seems impossible as no one stocks all the variations. So any hints on how to spec out the right HANS would be much appreciated.

20 degree. 10 is for extreme upright seating, and 30 is for a formula car lay back seat. I've worn my 20 degree in a Formula car as well.

Thank you for a quick response. So I'm looking at anchor types:

1. Quick disconnect sliding tether (SFI approval only, not FIA)
2. Post Anchors (FIA and SFI approved)
3. LW2 (formula cars, Indy/F1 - FIA and SFI approved)

Regardless of option, I'll need to get some anchors for my helmet. What I'm not sure about is will simple Post Anchors work with whatever HANS anchor option I get? The Quick disconnect appears to be popular but is not FIA approved.

Thoughts?

Thanks, Rob.

I have the quick disconnect with sliding tether and could not be happier.
So much easier to quickly get out it.
