I'm trying to replace my Acratech and was hoping to try the Markins M20 but CP is no longer bringing them in. Instead, they are bringing in the KangRinpoche. The price is nice but the big problem I have with them is the level of friction in the panning base.
It may be kind of obvious, but the sales assistant didn't know the answer. Is there a control anywhere on the ballhead that allows you to adjust the tension so that i can pan freely without any friction?
