I have a question.  I've been operating Steadicam since the late 90's and started on a Provid which did not have the typical socket block mount to the vest... I've used several different types since then and now own an EFP red spring arm and I sometimes get some banging around on the socket block kickback..  Walking normal/slow is fine, but running causes the knocking..  I sometimes put a strap on it to the aircraft pin to keep it at the mid swing, and have it set for my posture, but other than that I'm not sure, has anyone else experienced this?  I've done the Steadicam course and all that, but my EFP arm is the only one I've experienced this with..  Suggestions?
