I'm using the Gitzo 1542T and a RRS BH-30 ballhead  with the XT-1.  I think it's a great combination.  I have two other Gitzo carbon fiber tripods and they've all been very good.  The 1542T is very compact-more so than my older Gitzo 05, and can go to ground level without the need for a separate accessory.  The Really Right Stuff BH-30 ballhead is expensive but very well made.
