Question about Quantaray QSX-DigiPro 8500 Tripod
All three legs of the tripod are suddenly floppy. They were fine before the transatlantic flight. Now they flop all over the place. Can't seem to pinpoint the problem. Seems to be a tightening issue of some kind, but don't know how any screws would loosen up while stowed in a bag. Ideas? Thanks, -M
Here we go. It sounds like you might have a problem with a strip thread or oil on the legs. If the thread is stripped you'll have to replace it. If it is not grabbing, wipe the legs down with alcohol or some type of solvant. If the wipe down does not work try a fine sand paper so that it grabs better. Let me know how you make out.

I have no ideas, but if you buy another tripod, I owuld like to buy your old handles from your 8500.
