    Odd question, I believe that the first 2 digits of gitzo tripods indicate the leg diameter, but does anyone know what those diameters are? I am looking to get leg wraps for a CF tripod ( not Gitzo ) that has a top leg dia. of 1.25". The manufacturer is Lenscoat, and they have wraps made for a specific tripod model number. I know I can get close enough with length and diameter, based on series, if I have model number to compare to. If this made sense to anyone reading this, give me a shout. Thank's

    The current Gitzo range is a follows

    example

    GT2530

    GT = Gitzo Tripod

    2 = series 2
    5 = made from carbon fibre
    3 = number of leg sections
    0 = model version

    other codes are
    GM = gitzo monopod
    GH = gitzo head

    the second number
    5 = carbon
    9 = basalt
    3 = aluminium

    Model version
    when a newer version replaces and old model the last digit will increase by 1
    so when the GT2530 is replaced it will be called GT2531
