    Got this handle from BH last year. Lately I notice the rubber grib at the handle will slip and rotate when I about to fully tighten the bowl. wWas that the design or intention? it made me frustrated that the bowl seems couldnt fully tightened. Any expert can assist on this or any current users experience this ? Thanks

    The rubber grip should not be moving or slipping when you attempt to tighten it.

    I presently have TVC-34 Versa S.3 Mk2 tripod purchased from B&H, will this work with Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head ?
    Asked by: Tanny
    TVC-34 Versa S.3 Mk2 tripod will not work with the Sachtler Ace XL Fluid Head (75mm Bowl) BH #SAS21500004 as the later only works with tripod legs of 75mm Bowl.

    The description states that this levelling base will also fit a Gitzo Systematic series 3 tripod. Since the top plate on a Series 3 tripod is exactly the same size as a Series 2 Systematic tripod, this base must also fit Series 2 and I also believe Series 4 then. True or False?
    Asked by: David
    The TA-3 comes with a 75 mm bowl which is identical in diameter to the Gitzo 75 mm leveling base (designed for Series 2, 3 and 4 Systematic tripods). Reading around the forums I noticed some users reporting that the TA-3's 75 mm bowl, however, cannot take advantage of the spider lock on the Gitzo. This can be easily resolved by swapping out the TA-3's bowl with the Gitzo bowl.
