Cut out location is fairly inconsistent across sails but on my Sailworks NX7.2 the top of the clamp is at about the middle. I'd describe it as between my armpit and top of my shoulder.

I'm on a narrow (74cm) board using long (30") lines in mostly very light wind with large (5.5-7.2) sails. I use a rearward mast base and fairly low boom specifically to reduce MBP and keep weight ...

For me I use a slight sheet out to roll the board to windward then apply enough weight through the harness to keep it from rounding up. Once I'm balanced most of my drive is through my front heel with ...
