Has everyone moved to carbon fibre? Is there still a place for an old aluminium tripod?

Hey,

I still own an old manfrotto 055xprob aluminium tripod but I've always been put off off by it's weight. Back then i bought it simply because of it's price because carbon fibre tripods were crazy expensive back then. However, this seems to have changed since all recommended tripods seem to be carbon fibre. Is there still a place for aluminium tripods or are they just obsolete and ready for the recycling bin? I'm also contemplating the move to carbon fibre but it's just sad to see the old tripod go to waste
