Counter balancing adjustment Vision Blue

I have a Vision Blue, and concerned about leaving the counter balance adjusted. What I mean is that as I understand the mechanism it is a spring. Will leaving it in the same 'adjusted' position weaken the spring, meaning that when not in use the tension should be backed off. It doesn't mention this point in the manual. What is the skinny?>

Thks in advance.

Think that's a question for Vintens very own "Action Man" - Peter.Harman@VitecGroup.com

He may well pick up his Bat Phone, having seen your post (he's a member here) else fire him a mail direct.

Hmmm... I worked on the principle that if it doesn't specifically say not to do it in the manual, it's probably OK.

But it would be nice to get confirmation.

Re: Counter balancing adjustment Vision Blue

It will be fine wherever you leave the counterbalance set. The design wont allow the spring to take a set. Dont worry.
