Agree. Some sort of tripod about head high and behind is the best, imo. Funny you should mention rubbish bin, as that's what I've been using as my "tripod". Must get a real one.

Yeah, agree. I watched your wall vid. Nice hitting. It's hard for me to tell if OP in this thread is the optimal distance from the wall.
