I just wanted to hear some opinions for this combination

190 X PRO B tripod
488RC2 ballhead

for allround use, and not too much weight on it...
In my place this combination is around 250 €, so is it worth that money

Im also been looking at the exact same combination. anybody have tried this combination (or either one of them :) ) ? that can give a comment.

Im just wondering if it is stable with the "column" up... if it is not stable i think the whole tripod is too short (im about 175cm tall) for me if i need the stability which means that i need to have the column down.

PS. sorry for bumping up this old thread

I bought this combination, and I'm very satisfied with it.

The ball head is amazing, and it's easy to navigate with it.
The tripod is stable, and column too, no mather if it's up or down, or horizontal.

I have D80 with various lens and it serves me well.
I'm too 175 cm, and the height is OK too, in my opinion I don't think you need higher tripod (depends on what are you using tripod for).

The best thing is to go to shop and try it with your camera, as I did.
