    Arca C1 Cube: Is play normal?

    Well, I sprung for it, and agree that the ease of use makes it worthwhile. No problems with the quick release.

    On the other hand, the bottom-most adjustment that allows the 45 tilt is nice and tight when locked in the tilt position, but has a bit of play when locked tightly in the 0 flat position. While it's not much, I'd don't expect to have any play in something this expensive. Have any of you experienced this?

    Thanks.
    Paul

    Mine locks up rock solid. IMO there should be ZERO play anywhere in the Cube when it's tightened up -- if you have play, I'd return it.

    Thanks, Jack. Hopefully it won't take too long to get a replacement.

    Replacement from Arca or the retailer??? I am close to being "incorporated" into the Cube but I will be interested to hear how your problem is addressed.

    SOLVED!!!
    Jack Flesher came by and showed me that there is a catch that holds the head firm in 0 degree position. But...in order to engage the lock you need to loosen the knob all the way to get it to seat, and then tighten. And it's solid as a rock now.

    Thank you Jack!!!
