Yep, coppa is right on about the strap I am talking about. Could you angle the right part of the strap more up towards your knuckles? Bringing the left part of the strap pretty flush with the bottom edge of the right? Would that give your hand more keeping it alittle more secure. The way it looks is that’s it’s a little loose

The new "360 active drop" system they have in place on the G4's and GT2's is more to blame. Because the calf wrap lost a lot of the rigidity that was apparent in the G3/GT1, there is a lot more play in the channel than there was previously. Especially when guys strap down to the calf.

I currently strap down to the calf on my GT1's but I'll be trying out behind the knee initially to see how it plays.

Not sure if you already have adjusted it or not, but keep in mind the Calf Wrap is adjustable on G4/GT2 now compared to GT1.

Not sure if this is the right place to post but I've been having a problem with forward tilt/under rotation in my RGT2s. The root of the problem seems to be that when I drop in my butterfly, my knees drop into the space between the landing gear and the back of the pad face, forcing the pads forward slightly forward. I've tried loosening everything up to the point that it's almost falling off the front of my leg when standing and it's still happening. (I have it strapped to my calf and just have bungee toe ties, no boot strap, and wearing bauer vapor 1x knee pads).

One thing I noticed is that even when I lay the pads flat they have a little forward tilt (though it's more exaggerated with I'm in them). This could be just from me dropping on them in the wrong place over and over again, but I'm starting to worry that the damage may be done.

The only idea I have left is to try strapping to the knee so I can strap even looser without it basically hanging off my leg, so any advice or other ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Interesting you're having an issue of over rotation. 

Here's my pads thrown on the ground like yours:

Looks to be the same.

Here's a quick pic with me in them:

I can't say I have any issues with them being square to the shooter and I never have any issues with under/over rotation. 

I have a very similar strapping set up as well.

I've worn these pads loose, tight, and everywhere in between but my experiences remain the same. 

The only thing that stands out to me is you noting that you're consistently landing on the piece that connects the knee wing to the face of the pad. That will push it outwards and be the major reason why you're having this issue. 

All we need to figure out is why you're landing here. I land dead center without issue.
