Tripod advice

My very old Slick Master tripod just died a slow death. My very understanding and loving wife blessed me by giving the OK to purchase a new tripod.
I looked local, where I try to make all of my purchases, and the heaviest duty and reasonably priced was a Giottos MT 9261 for about 175US.
Has anyone had any experience with this brand? It looks very sturdy and heavy duty. All comments and advice appreciated.

This is the one I'm looking at local. The local one includes the upgraded carrying case which is 42US more plus shipping at B&H. I do use B&H when I can't find something local and highly recommend them.
Pete, she will never let me forget that I dropped $4,000 worth of new camera equipment...........

Hey Jerry,
I do not have any experience with the Giottos and can't really answer your questions correctly.

I have the Manfrotto 190XPROB which is on sale at B&H for $159.95

Congratulations and good luck with your purchase.
