Multirig Pro with Canon XL2 or XLH1?

I just received my Multirig Pro (thanks Danny) and it's quite a piece of gear. I'm not sure exactly how I'll use it with My XLH1 (12 lbs with accessories), and have several questions for anyone already using it .

Chris,
Michael Liebergot (thanks a lot, Michael) was nice enough to spend time on the phone with me, and give me some usefull tips .I also spoke to Danny Natovich, and he suggested that I try the H1 in "stabilizer plus " position. That's with both hands on the grips, and the camera out in front, using the lcd rather thn the viewfinder. I found that position interesting, but need more practice. The camera tends to make you pull on the grips, which means that the arms need to be really tightened down. With the H1 being heavier than the FX1 etc., I'll probably use the body pod, with both hands on the camera and ny eye on the viewfinder.
All in all it is a real nice rig, and Danny gives great customer support.
