If the extra bit of weight is not a problem I'd opt for the 2 series, legs are a lot thicker, especially the bottom sections (2 series is 28/24/20/16, the 1 series would be about 22/18/14/10 from the top of my head, could well be wrong on the exact diameter of the 1 series). add a RRS head (BH-30 LR) and its a great platform. 1 Series is the most commonly chosen one I believe though, so its probably also quite up to scratch

Another option: RRS series 1 (TQC-14), that will be a small step above the 2 series.
