Adrain - I think you have not quite told us what type of equipment you have and how you intend to use your tripod. If you have heavy equipment and long lenses, you'll need some stability. On the other hand, if you are travelling, do you really want to lug a huge and heavy tripod around? There has to be some compromises here, EVEN IF YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY BIG BUCKS.

I just got my Manfrotto 055ProB and 488RC4 ballhead - aiming for the acratech ultimate ball head.
Is the central column slight filmsy and acceptable quality from Manfrotto??? Or I really need to stablized it with heavy weight at the bottom?

Uhmm... there is a HUGE collection of carbon fibre tripods at CP Peninsular. It is not in the main shop, but at a smaller shop (it's still part of CP) directly opposite. In there, you can buy a wide range of camera support systems. Many tripods and ballheads to choose from. They also sell other stuff like camera plates, leg warmers, tripod bags etc.
