Question about Gitzo Photography
Please could someone advise me about a problem I have with this brand new head?
It feels a little stiff in some positions as the head is rotated and not at all as smooth as I believe it should be after reading some reviews.
I have tried rotating the head in all directions, to spread any lubricant around the ball in case it may have a few dry spots - but the stiffness in some positions is still there.It feels tight in certain locations and camera angles.
Is there any way I can adjust the level of friction grip on the ball, add extra grease or should I just send it back for a warranty repair?

Go to big lots or other discount house (I went to sears and spent $4.00) and buy the cheapest mini tripod you can find and scarf the screw/knob off that. That is what I did.

I just had this same problem and came across your post. In frustration I held the grip and then let it go very quickly where the grip 'snapped' back.
Now it works. Go figure. I will mention a very small piece of plastic fell out of it, but it does not appear to hinder the functionality.

Try www.BogenTripodParts.com for that part. There is listed the widest selection of Bogen parts and support more models than any other web site I’ve seen. There are losts of pictures to help find just the right part. There are some photo essays on how to rebuild a head or a tripod on the home page.
