I was operating with my hand actually on the gimbal.......I know I know that's a no no. I was locked off. Upon cutting I spun the camera around to dock, and my finger was caught in the gap on the gimbal sleeve. Damn that hurt! Bloody torn skin. Not very impressive to look at just painful at the time. Has anyone run into this problem(PRO Gimbal)?

Not sure if this problem is universal, but with my master gimbal I had a similar unpleasant feeling when holding the gimbal, I have put some heat-shrinking tube around it, keeps my fingers out of trouble.
