I've only ridden it with the crappy restraints and yes, they are painful, but similar to Maverick, I found a way to ride which made them less painful.
I totally get that uncomfortable restraints can negatively affect the ride, but I just find that I don't care, that airtime is worth the pain!
Here's the thing.. you shouldn't have to find a way to ride a ride to make it a fantastic ride. I never had to do that with Maverick, even with the old restraints, and still LOVED it. Skyrush just plain hurt. Having larger then most thighs doesn't help either. That knocks it down a few pegs, especially to the rides around it, when I'm working to rank the ride. If that changes when I reride it, you'll be damn sure I'll move it up, but the deep muscle bruises and uncomfortable riding I experienced can't help it as of yet.
