p.1 #1 · Gitzo Basalt, anyone elses smell bad?


I dont know if its the material or what but the odor that I get on my hands when I mess with the legs is foul.

Anyone else notice this?

Could it just be excess oil on the legs from production? When my 6x 5560 arrived I had to give the legs a good clean as I kept getting oil on my hands when carrying it.

I use a damp cloth and soapy water to clean the tripod legs whenever they get very dusty or muddy, then leave the tripod extended for a while to dry fully.
It took a few cleans to get rid of the slight oily feel when the Gitzo was new but it's ok now.
