There is something that bugs me about my Technikardan. The bottom of the rail ha s a leather-like strip glued into a wide, shallow grove that runs the entire len gth and nearly the width of the rail. It is either meant to be decorative or pro vide a cushion. But all quick-mount plates that I have seen, (e.g. Gitzo or Manf rotto) also have a cushion material of cork or rubber. So when one screws down c ushion to cushion, there is definit torsional twistiness.
Has anyone as compulsive as I noticed this or figured out anything to do about?
