    Cutting straps on a leviathan

    I've heard people do this so the bar rests on one layer instead of two. It makes sense so the bar will be in a more natural position. Do you cut the bottom one?

    We did this on a ace. We cut the bottom end so it didn't look like crap. Worked fine.

    It's been a while, but I used to cut both straps thinner since they would pretty mich take up my whole shoulder and I couldn't feel the bar on my back. I really didn't care what it looked like, but it would sometimes get strings hanging from it.
