Although I'm no fan of the push kicker, one advantage for singlehaders is that it permits a very low gooseneck and an angle that doesn't push too much forward load into the mast. That does go part of the way to compensating for the reduced force going where you don't want it.

Hardly an issue given the height of the Vortex boom, surely?

Timing will depend upon when I'm needed on the lighting stand, but should be able to get there.

No probs, we're aiming to get there at 12.30ish and are staying to the very end, so we've got all afternoon to fit in a drink. Smile
