Will a Gizoto be better than cheaper tripod of similar weight/dimensions?

I have a canon 5D MkII, 24-70 F2.8 USM, and occasionally i have a 70-200 F4 on there.

Currently i have a 3LeggedThing carbon fibre tripod (Model: Brian) and their own ballhead.

Ive had a few quality issues with the tripod and particularly the head, but 3LeggedThing have awesome customer service so i cant complain.

I paid roughly 450 quid for the legs and head.

The great thing about it is its pretty stable, only weights 1.3kg and folds to 42cm, great for travelling

Im wondering if i get a gizoto of similar dimensions/weight, with a highly recommended ballhead will it be more stable, and overall better tripod considering its almost 3 times the price?
