I've read Neil's blog about Gitzo top plate issues and have seen something here some time ago (but cannot find the thread which must be old by now). Not sure I understand the "V1" nomenclature he used.

I am a little confused as to which Gitzo models and/or which "vintage" of Gitzo tripods have the top plate issue where it could come loose and fall out (with one's expensive rig, etc.).

I have the 3540LS with which I quite happy. However, I don't know if this is the vintage of Gitzo that has the potential problem.
