I purchased a Feisol 3342 about 2 weeks (Feb 8 to be exact) ago and today was my second time using it. I got to my location and started setting up. I extended the leg tubes and was beginning to straighten them to set the tripod down when next thing I know one of the legs came completely unattached from the base. I flipped out! My first thought was is this supposed to happen? So I fittled with it a bit. Both other legs were on tight as could be. I was able to slide the leg back on but it now comes of with ease. If I'm missing something about how to operate it then please tell me! I'll feel like an idiot but that's fine as long I get it properly working.

Is this a common occurance with Feisol tripods? Can I return the tripod for a new one? I'm not sure if just got a bad copy or what but needless to say I am very upset about this. This is pretty crappy if they can come apart this easy. Ugh!!

I sent an e-mail to Kerry at RBC to see what my options are. I'll update as I find out more.

Here are few pictures
