i just did this and it was significantly harder i thought, although overall my time was not much slower.
i'm thinking this is more related to the fact that high rep thrusters are less frequent than high rep wall balls.
I had to sub 45lb bar thrusters for a long time. Now that I can use a wall ball I find that it is much more difficult. This mostly because to be quick you need to be tight and ride the falling weight down into the squat, where as with the bar its not falling down to you can kinda have you way with it.
