I finally decided to get the Manfrotto 055XPROB because it's taller so I can avoid using the center column and I have the option to get spiked feet for the tripod.

Looks like retailers are clearing out their stock of the older series now that they have the new version of this tripod in stock.

I couldn't pass up $130 no shipping or tax from Ritz (which appears to be a brick and mortar store):

Let us know what you think of the aluminum. On the smaller 190 I couldn't stand it, so I returned it and got CF. Much more rigid.
