Re: problem with new Sirui N2204 tripod..... (experience with sirui anyone??)

I have used a T-1204X for almost a year, no problem. The twist locks even worked after a night in -20°C, that is not the case with all twist locks tripods.

But I also have a G20 ball head that is just junk. If I unlock the pano base just so much that I can can do pano, it runs all but smooth, like some surface inside is very uneven. The tension control is also very inaccurate and loose. I also have a Markins head so it is perhaps an unfair comparison. The Markins Q3T is the same size and far better in all areas execpt the security pin in the quick release clamp.
