The Feisol is an exceptionally good value for a carbon fiber pod, and the light weight of a modest sized ball head makes the whole kit very, very convenient to schlep around.
    Ditto.

    The Feisol is a great value and light as a feather.

    If you are less concerned about weight, then the Berlebach with 2 section legs and a leveling base is great and very quick to set up and level.

    I have a Rolliflex 2.8C sans Rollifix that I mount on a Manfrotto/Bogan 3021 with a Bogan ball head that looks like some kind of joystick. I can't remember the model number. Anyway, the ball head has a rectangular quick release head. While using the Rolliflex, the tripod stays put where I plant it. I never move the tripod with the camera mounted precisely because I don't want to put undue stress on the camera back. I always carry the camera by it's strap around my neck. Come to think of it, I carry all my cameras this way. I never leave them mounted on the tripod while moving from place to place. I think it's safer that way.

    The problem with square quick-release was that on my last rollei I had one of those. I left it on the windows sill and it lost its balance and fell over. Very sad a 60 yeat old camera is damaged beyond repair.

    This is why I went for the Rolleifix. So there is no temptation to leave the QR plate on.

    I like the Gitzos. I keep my Tele on
    a Cremaillere 2 with a geared column,
    a No. 2 Gitzo pan/tilt head, and a
    Rolleifix. I wish only that the column
    were a few inches taller, when shooting
    six-foot-tall subjects.

    The milk crate is an essential part of
    this rig. It raises me up to the finder. :-)

    Finally I settled on a Gitzo Reporter, Novoflex MagicBall Mini, and a Rolleifix. All of it I got for fairly reasonable price on ebay. Will be using them next few weeks and see how they fare. Many thinks to everyone who made all the useful suggestions.
