ben_r_.... i was using my tripod down at the beach the other day, so of course it got sand and salt water inside the leg shaft. once i got home i took all the legs apart to get the sand out and rinse it in fresh water. so my question is, after it dries do i need to apply any type of lube or grease where the screw joins are located? if so then do recommend a particular lube to use for it? thanks for the help.
Honestly, I have never had to deal with this as I use my tripod leg protectors (see my sig) whenever my either of my tripods go anywhere near dirt, mud, snow, water, etc. However, seeing as how you are already in the predicament, see this LINKfor all youll ever need to know about Gitzo leg care.
