A tripod is only as stable as it's weakest link. IMHO, even having a center column weakens the stability, when it is raised the whole purpose of having a tripod is blown. I suugest using tripods with no center column. FWIW. Good luck.

Some years ago, I modified my tripod by removing the center post and replacing it with a tripod base made by Markins. I still have the post and parts, but not having a post is no great loss.
