Friction Lock

The photo above shows two Surf Type X fittings; but they are not the same. The black one features our standard bombproof lock, the white one is a custom version featuring friction set adjustment and focussing.

There is a bit of a debate to be had here. On one hand, the fully lockable type protects against the focussing being disturbed, but it is more time consuming to set up in the first place. On the other hand with a friction type adjustment focussing is quick and now that we are using LEDs (no more clumsy lamp changes) no one is going to be touching the fittings anyway... or are they?

So, should we offer friction adjustment as an option on Track X and Surf X, or should we just stick with our reliable locks?
