I continued this search off and on for a while and realized I had some other criteria that I failed to mention in the original post - namely portability and cost. I like to take my tripod traveling and back country hiking so I need something that is both compact and light. The Gitzo range is nice, and yet the lighter models aren't tall enough. Not to mention the price of the Gitzos. Jeez.

After some research I settled on the Feisol 3442, which is tall enough, light enough and cheap enough.

And I added the center column, and a Photo Clam ball head. In fact, it is the same setup as outlined here:

The kit arrives tomorrow - I hope it meets expectations.
