Has anyone tried stuffing newspaper into the thin aluminium legs of the CG-4 to lessen vibration? Supposedly it will make them behave more sturdy, like wooden legs.

I've heard of sand in the legs. I haven't heard of newspaper.
I've also heard of hanging some weight down the middle of the tripod
or placed on the accessory tray.
