looks like a very stable tripod judging from the leg diameter of the various sections. I've seen some 80mm spotting scopes on fairly skinny tripods (leg diameter ~20mm) and could never understand how they could be stable enough for the size of the scope placed on top..
I second the suggestions around using masking tape but you have to ensure its stuck down well as it will sometimes catch on the collet of the leg section above it when you are retracting the legs. Tends to be become messy if it catches when you are pulling the leg OUT as the torn off material remains inside the previous leg section...
Not an issue though if you're careful. Enjoy the new tripod.
