Thanks Chris! I am actually now trying to decide between the Pro -L, the PG-L or the Pro-LX. My concern is with the Libec M20 Pan handle. It has a Plastic grip that flares largers as it get closer toward the end. The PG-L with it bracket and pistol grip will leave enough space between the Libec handle and the Varizoom handle as to not have to worry about my hand being in a cramped space, but I like Pro-LX, but my fear is when I attach it to the Libec handle that it will leave my hand in a tight fit. I wish I could find a local store that carried these things. Oh well. Anyone have the Varizooms on a Libec M20?

Well Chris, I agree so I went and did it, just ordered the PG-L, so hopefully next week I will be trying it out. Now with all this fancy equipment let's see how badly I butcher my friends wedding, my first big shoot, in 2 weeks! Hopefully with my Libec and Varizoom I can get some nice steady shoots!

Congrats Keith, I think the PG-L is the better choice. It sits up off the handle a bit; plenty of room for your hand in there. Be sure to let us all know how you like it.

My mistake I ordered the Pro-L, I am going to put it at the end of the Pan handle and wanted it to act like a continuation of the Pan handle since I feel the Libec Pan handle is a little short. If the pan handle were longer I was going to opt for the PG-L for the reasons you specified. I'll let you know how I like it when it comes next week. Thanks for all your help and advice!

Well in that case you did the right thing, as you can hang the Pro-L at the end of the handle and it will work like an extension. Good move,

Any suggestions on a decent (not too expensive) shoulder support for a GL2? One that would allow me to use the Varizoom Pro-L would be nice?
