So I have been operating on a new-to-me Glidecam V-16 with the accompanying arm and vest. As I have been practicing at home I have been trying out different vest configurations to find the one that best suits me. My biggest remaining question is should the bottom pads be resting lower on the body around hip or just above hip level (and distributing weight there) or should they be a little higher, resting around the waist or on the abs?
I have been sort of looking at pictures of different operators but still can't a consensus from them. I know it's largely up to personal preference I guess, but I am just wondering if there some sort of official guide to this.
It seems to me that when I rest the pads lower on my body it seems to increase fatigue in my lower / mid back, but maybe I am imagining things.
