So glad to see you post the detailed explanation and pics of this modification.Having had a chance to see and use the changes you outlined here firsthand, I can readingly attest to the 'astronomical' improvement this provides over the factory arrangement.The high amount of weight I've seen you attach to this without any image shift or fatigue speaks volumes as to the quality and soundness of your design.I hope all etx owners give thought to this significant improvement."Good one' Mike!
