I have a Manfrotto 055 X-Pro B and the Manfrotto 808RC4 Pan/Tilt head (I don't really like ball heads that much and tend to work more slowly when using a tripod). This combo is solid enough for my Mamiya RB67 Pro SD. Also two of the legs have padding in the top section if you need to use it during cold conditions. I basically got the thing for half price off of eBay and it was almost new. I would buy it again if I was in the market.
