I recently bought a Gitzo GT3541. Since I don't need the center column, I tried removing it but the attachment is not that strong overall. A little twist on the plate will turn it and the head becomes little wobbly. I am using Arca Swiss Z1 with it. I may be doing something wrong here but wanted to check what others have to say about removing the center column and attaching the head directly on the plate. Is this stable enough ?

Also, I wanted to get the Markin Tb-30 for it but Markins website says that TB-30 doesn't fit GT3541L purchased after Apr. 2012, which is my situation. Any other manufactures makes the same kind of base plate ?

Anybody knows what exactly the difference is between the older and 2012 models for 3541 ? I know that they did a lot of design change for the Systematic/Mountaineer series and introduced a 2 version (ex, GT3542LS) but don't see any information on the version 1 of the Mountaineer series (GT3541) though. I have a GT2541 (alongwith TB-21) purchased 2 yrs before and don't see any visible difference in design between the 2 and 3 mountaineer series.

Thanks in advance.
