Default Sled pulling for recovery

Does how you pull the sled have any affect on recovery. For example...Shoulder harness, waist belt, or how the guy was pulling the sled in your recent article. I am considering sled pulling and just using some line, no harness and various techniques seems to be the way to go, but I don't want it to turn into its own WOD. My question is not coming out well, so I will end here and wait for some other post and try and tweak it.

the whole idea behind sled pulling for recovery is that there is no loaded eccentric action; that being the case, you should be pretty safe no matter what you do, but take it easy on the volume. example movements would be front, back, side walking; rowing; pressing. keep it simple and easy.

I call it the dredge. It is a variable resistance sled, the harder you go the more resistance.
