Carbon fibre tripod recommendations

I'm looking to upgrade my tripod, Manfrotto 190XDB, to a carbon fibre unit.

I want something sturdier than what i currently have to support my Nikon D700 with lenses such as 16-35mm. I also want something that I can get lower to the ground easily.

I have narrowed it down to 2 essentially;

Manfrotto 055CXPro3

&

Feisol Tournament CT-3342

http://www.feisoleurope.com/feisol-tournament-tripod-ct3342-rapid-p-30.html

Both work out at roughly the same price but I would like to get comments/recommendations from users.

Also thinking about either fiesol ballhead or Induro BHD ballhead. Any comments

Mainly using this for landscape but some macro from time to time.

Nikon D700
