Re: Tripod research is testing my sanity, advice please

Feel your pain!  After screwing up my tripod purchase, wised up & got the Gitzo GT2531 tripod & GM5541.  They can handle anything that I'll throw at them.  Problem was with the heads.  20-20 hindsight, should have gone A-S compatible, as you suggested.  (Goofed by going with the Gitzo Safari ball head and the Manfrotto 234RC tilt head.)

Thinking an ArcaTech gimbal ball head for the tripod & a RRS monopod head
