I recently purchased a Majestic with a gear head for cheap. Pretty sure it could hold me if I stood on it. I'll get back to you on that one.
I used to have one of the old Tiltalls (not sure on the specifics), and it was great. But the screws were getting stripped and I left it behind when I moved. Thought about buying a new one, but you can get good deals on used tripods these days if you look... I guess most people don't need one when they can just crank their ISO to 6400.
