Are you using a real ($$$) fluid head, a cheap fluid head or a pseudo model?
The reason I ask is that there’s a very big difference between the three.
I have a 30 year old Miller fluid head tripod that cost more than some cars at the time of purchase and I love it. Very smooth and easy to so smooth pans and/or tilts with just one finger.
I also have a Manfrotto that was a lot less money but still a fluid head model and the difference between the two is night and day. It’s impossible for me to get as smooth a pan or tilt with the Manfrotto than I can with my Miller.
You really do get what you pay for when it comes to a good tripod.
