For me, 190pro is good enough for me. There is no requirement for 055 models, since they are quite heavy and too tall for my requirement. If you get a tripod that is heavier than what you are comfortable with, they are likely to collect dust.

I was thinking of 190 Xprob with 468RC2.....

Now, tempted to get 190 MF 4.... lol.... the weight factor..... ;p
