SJMs: but when there is a mistake in manufacture, the auto industry eventually "fesses up" and does a recall or repair for the model in question....
Do you think everyone reports on web sites? Perhaps my experience might provide a warning for those who (such as yourself) think they have a perfect ballhead from RRS...suppose yours falls apart in the field...then you might have different thoughts about what I have written.
"Man, you really hate RRS. Get over it." I think they manufacture some fine products. I am proud that they are an American company. I want them to have as many people employed as possible - I want them to continue to succeed as a business. So, no I don't hate them...I just point out where they have dropped the ball...and how they could improve.
That being said it is interesting to me how people give them such lavish praise...and how frequently newbees are recommended to purchase a RRS tripod and/or ballhead...from the same few people.
Anyway, RRS is a business. They do good things and they do things (or manufacture products) that may not be so good sometimes. One of the not so good things they do is oppose equal rights under the law for people who are gay (ie., homosexual) in California. Why...I don't know. It seems like a poor business decision to me...Moreover, each of us has people who are gay in our family - and we know some people who happen to be gay at work or wherever. Why those people - who are the same in every way, shape, form, ability and desire as me - should not have the same rights as me...and why RRS should be involved in a campaign to limit the rights/benefits of people who happen to be gay - I don't quite understand...can you explain that to me?
