Just get a tripod bag if you really wants to mantain tip-top condition. And clean it after use.

How about protecting yourself from your tripod? I use Optech Leg Protectors to preserve my poor shoulders whenever I'm carrying my long lens setup on my tripod. Makes a huge world of difference. And they do protect the legs too of course, CF legs are more prone to damage so some form of protection is advisable.

isn't carbon fiber the material used to build the cockpit of the F1 car? shouldn't it be strong?

hehehehe the more expensive you bought, the more laychay the maintenance :D

I have brought my Manfrotto tripod soaked into seawater (check jawa) and also bring it submerged to a chest deep water and it's still alive and kicking. I always clean it up though, after any nasty treatment.

I use gaffer tape to protect the surface of the ballhead. Simple and can easily be changed when they drop out or became worn off. A good protection against my sweaty palm too ;)
