This is a very well used tripod that is in need of some repair, but is still functional as-is. As mentioned above, the spring that automatically locks the touch and go plate in place is missing.
This can be repaired by Sachtler. One of the flip locks on the tripod legs was replaced, but the legs work fine.
The price reflects the condition of the tripod. The head is still smooth but has a tiny amount of bounce back on pans depending on the temperature. This was the case new though. The friction adjustments and counter-balance stick a little bit sometimes but still work as well. FSB-6T Fluid Head with Pan Bar.
