A metal spring back like the 4x5 MK3 will likely eliminate this problem.
    I was told that the 8X10 they would ship me had the new metal spring-fitted back, so apparently that's what they are shipping now.

    Hope you can find a suitable replacement to the Intrepid 8x10 to keep you in the 8x10 photography game.

    Actually, I already have a Deardorff 8x10, but there are some places I’d rather not take it, which is why I ordered an Intrepid.

    Me, too. And, exactly why I jumped on the Kickstarter campaign; ya just can't beat <5 lbs for an 8x10, regardless of some fiddling to use it. It's, also, not so good in the wind, but I use my darkcloth to shield it and, so far, no noticeable issues.
