Glidecam 2000 with a GL-2

Hello,
I'm really having bad time of balancing my Glidecam and GL2. I'm using a WD-58 wide angle converter and a BP-945 (large) battery with the setup. If there is anyone out there who is using this setup or close to it I would really appreciate some help or tips.

Thanks in advance,
Jerome

That might be too close to the max weight, you'd have an easier time balancing the 4000.

I think you can just buy more weights and the internal tube for the 4000 (which is longer)

That is true. I had the canon gl2 and now the a1 and both balance with the 2000. But now with the 4000 I realized that is a lot easier to balance with.

I haven't used the gl-2....but I have used my vx-2000 with big battery and century optics .55x lens on it. It requires 6 weights total(3 each side) and the pole out at the very limit.
