Hey cazillions,
Happy holidays! So i need your help again. The other day I grabbed my tripod and noticed the ball head had this greasy, gummy, gunk around the base and knobs. Im assuming this is some sort of lubricant. Anyways, I'm having a hard time cleaning this stuff and i was wondering if any one had any tips. I tried googling ball head cleaning and/or maintenence and so far ive learned everything about cleaning the legs and joints but nothing about the ball head or gunk. Im really hoping i dont have to buy another head. Help!

Who makes the head? It might be best to contact them as I haven't seen any ball heads with grease on the ball.

Its a vanguard SBH-100 ( www.vanguardworld.com/index.php/pv/produ...tail-1-4-23-144.html ). The grease (or lubricant) is around the adjustment knobs and the base of the body. Im wondering if this is an issue with lower end units. I was able to clean most of it using clorox wipes. I tried rubbing alcohol but that didnt do anything.
