The ONLY gripe (if i can even call it that) i have with the tripod is that the tilt/pan handle seems to have a bit of left/right "give" in it when panning left to right/right to left. This could be caused by me not having the pan axis tention adjustment control set correctly. Maybe i have it set to "heavy" so when i do pan across......................the pan axis lever is working slightly harder then it should be. Its a very minor issue and one which i'm sure is self inflicted rather then a design fault.

It is hardly noticable to be honest.The same "give" is not there when the tilt axis is in motion.

Tonight (Sunday) i discovered that the tilt/Pan handle has NO give in it. I just had to tighten a screw to solve the problem.
