Just to say that Gitzo service in the UK is first class and ever helpful.

+1
Also, in my experience, Gitzo tripods are much cheaper Here too. Well mine certainly were - I couldn't afford the copies!

Yes, but uprooting my family and moving to the UK seems a tad over-reactive for solving my problem :D

I'd like to make a distinction between CRIS in Arizona who now do the actual service work on the Gitzo tripods here and Manfrotto Distribution in New Jersey. CRIS are responsive, Manfrotto Distribution in NJ are not.

This statement gives me *some* measure of hope. I went into my local camera shop to talk to my folks there and they gave me the number for CRIS, suggesting I give them a call and see if I can get any movement that way.

As I've found Manfrotto here as well. Sad that their US operation is failing.

I would recommend Benro, worth checking out. Expecialy carbon fibre models are in my opinion exelent.

I had a look at the Benro BRC3770T, as it is a direct equivalent of my Gitzo 3530LS. It looks like a nice piece of kit but is 30GBP more expensive than my Gitzo was (3 years ago admittedly) so I think I made the right choice.
