Re-Greasing a Friction "Fluid" Head
Hey guys, I have a cheap friction-style (IE not real) fluid head that I'm re-greasing in an effort to get some slightly better performance out of it. My problem with it before was that it was smooth, but it would jerk every time you started moving it; it wasn't a smooth transition from rest to motion. My white lithium grease didn't change that (it actually made it worse). I read somewhere that someone used tri-flow. Has anyone one here done this, and what grease did you use?
