Tripod recommendations

I'd love to get recommendations on purchasing tripod legs. Of course, I'm trying to balance cost with features, so what I want may not exist. Here are the things I'm looking for, in rough order of priority:

1. No center column (or secondarily, a removable center column)

2. 3 sections, versus 4

3. Sturdy (won't blow over in a good gust of wind)

4. Carbon fiber

5. Can hold up to about 40 lbs. (in other words, doesn't have to be a super pro version...I don't shoot with long lenses...max 300mm...and usually shooting with a Zeiss 100mm f/2 ZF

6. Extends to 62 inches, so with tripod head and camera, will be right about eye level.

Many thanks, in advance for feedback!
