Moderators Janice Arthur Posted June 9, 2012 Moderators Report Share Posted June 9, 2012 Hi all; I thought we needed to get away from the gear since we're all numb about that and the manufacturer(s) are addressing to most people's satisfaction. Please don't digress into who has what. I'll start it off where Charles left it. I felt I had arrived when I could hide mine, lately though I'm sure my steps have come back on shots to my horror. Mine is partly these; vest fits differently as I have aged and I need to really analyze that; I've lost a few inches and pounds in the last months and my posture should change too; and the quality of shot making these days (much harder); work load in a day and your ability to focus on the shots while planning four shots ahead on the long work load, no set up time days. How your feet move and how you have adjusted your body's CG to move the weight (of the rig)without notice. Those alone should keep us all thinking for weeks. First, not in order, loosing or gaining weight, I find I have to lean against the weight of the rig more if I'm lighter and that changes how I relate to the rig, my detail of how I start and stop is very different. I think you also have to consider more or less muscle on a weight loss or gain. The flab will mean you're carrying more mass, good against the weight of the rig but bad for overall day's endurance. Less weight, ideally you've added muscle, means you're leaner but less mass against a heeavy weight, (even the lightweight rigs get heavy). Thanks and maybe we can all just focus on something new and learn too. The forum needs a new focus, I'm brain-dead on the other topic.
