Whats everyone prefer? I'm starting to think about a new tripod and i'm leaning towards the twist type leg locks. My thinking is that daily grit and grime could interfere more with exposed flip type latch's. My current tripod, while not inexpensive isnt of the same quality of some of the better known names and this has been somewhat of an issue. Occasionally i do have to give the latch's a good cleaning or they dont seat properly.
Thoughts & experiences regarding this?
