Is it ideal to gaffer tape tripod legs? Or is it up to one's preference? Any benefits or disadvantages?

I use a tennis racket grip (Wilson) on one leg of my tripod to allow easier handling of the tripod during freezing weather.

Depends.

I usually wants to take good care of my equipment, so I gaffer my tripod.
I have seen one photographer who use plastic PVC tubing for his tripod just to protect it.

If you are those who can't stand a single scratch on the tripod legs, by all mean gaffer them.

I like the look of a seasoned tripod. :bsmilie: Maybe if its a gitzo, i'll consider gaffering it.
