Gitzo alternatives

I was reading a few tripod threads here the other day and stumbled across some people mentioning alternatives to Gitzo CF tripods.

Alas, the only ones I can remember were Benro ( http://www.benro.cn/ ) and the wooden Berlbach ( http://www.berlebach.de/e_index.php )

There was at least one more whos name I cannot for the life of me remember and, despite trying to search the threads, cannot find.

Anyone care to help? I think it started with a U, but am unsure...

Also if anyone has any other recommendations that would be fantastic.

(I'm looking for something to support a D2X size camera with 100-300 / 200-400 VR lens. I don't own these lenses (yet) but that's where I'm heading, and I don't want to make more than one more investment in tripod gear. (Currently own a Manfrotto 055bPro and 468RC2, whch is no longer good enough for my requirements and intentions.))
