Not to butt in, but the Manfrotto 055PROB are sturdy as you could ask for amd reasonably priced ( well in the US anyway)

Thanks Bruce - bought a few bits and pieces from the US and they have been excellent value and pretty good delivery times - thanks for the link I will have a look :thumbup:
Just realised that was the one recommended by MT shooter - must be a good one then!!
