Hi all,

I just got the Markins Q3, and it's an amazing quality product. Looks a lot better than the Kirk BH-3 ball head I have on my bigger tripod.
The one thing that has me stumped is how to find the sweet spot on this ball head. With the Kirk, it's simple, open the main locking knob and turn the tension knob until you find the tension that you need, then just use the locking knob to lock it down. With the Markins it seems to be a lot more complicated as you are able to completely unlock the ball head (losing all tension) regardless how far you have the tension knob turned - the difference is only in how many turns it takes to unlock the ball head.

Could some of you Markins owners please post your procedure for obtaining the sweet spot?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Kevin
