I spend a lot of time around beaches and salty environment so proper disassembly and clean sand off is required to preserve my CF Sirui T-2204X and its twist lock mechanism. I was thinking apply common white lithium grease as lubrificant but I have read around to use specific grease for carbon fibre tripods as the common lubrificants used for aluminum are not compatible and may damage it. Further, there are suggestions not to apply any grease to the plastic parts.
I am a bit confused and Sirui has no instructions on their website for maintenance.
Since carbon fibre tripods are almost the same do you guys recommend (or do not recommend) any specific grease and the way it should be applied?
Thanks in advance
