Help with tripod selection - Feisol CT3442 vs 3441T

Model 3342

Model 3341T

I need your help deciding which tripod to buy? After much research I found that these two models give me what I need and are within my price range. The two major differences are that 3441T comes with center column and 3442 has an optional center column. Their weights, heights are pretty close to a point where it won't make much difference. One of the biggest differences I found was the base diameter. 3441T has a base diameter of 1.6 inches vs 3442 has 3.1 inches. Is having smaller more beneficial or less beneficial in terms of stability? or does not not matter?

I looked at Gitzos that have similar specs but they are way too expensive that Feisols. Is there any other tripod that you recommend? I am looking for something that can hold Pentax K-1 + grip + 70-200 f2.8.

Thanks.
