Just my 2 cents... I just got my G11 a couple of days ago, so I'm not particular expert on this mount...

Tonight I was setting up for imaging session and when it came time to balance I could not loosen the dec. clutch knob. The dec. shaft will move when I try to loosen the knob but not freely enough for balancing. The knob is locked tight. Have any other G11 owners had a similar problem. Please let me know.
I've not seen this. Do you have the upgrade clutch knobs?

NO! Do not use a pipe wrench. Even with a towel it will mar the surface. If you must, try a strap wrench.
Why not cover a pipe wrench with a towel so as not to leave any marks behind, and force it loose?

Have you grabbed the top saddle and tried to turn the knob?
