Carbon fiber tripod w/ ball head and Arca Swiss plate for < $300?

I am looking for recomendations for a carbon fiber tripod with a ball head that takes Arca Swiss style plates.  Oh, and $300 or less if possible.  My friend has used the one linked below for the last year with good results but it does have some mixed reviews though an overall good rating.

Are there any Manfrottos that meet this criteria?  I have an old Manfrotto that uses an octagonal shaped plate.  The other Manfrottos seem to use their own style quick release.  I want to stick to the Arca Swiss plates as I will also be using the Peak Design hand clutch  that has an Arca Swiss compatible plate and possible some other Peak Design stuff.

Cheap tripod

Thanks.
