I have just broken my Gitzo G1120 tripod attempting to free a stick leg.

So I need a new tripod. I was very happy with the Gitzo apart from the legs getting stuck on a few occasions (prob due to me not looking after them properly)

So any recommendations for a budget tripod?

Not too worried about the weight. I have a Manfrotto 498RC2 ball head

The Manfrotto 190XPRO Aluminium 3 Section Tripod with Horizontal Column looks promising?

I have the Manfrotto 190XPROB, probably an older version of the one you're looking at. I really like working with it. In some cases that horizontal column is quite handy. Only thing I miss is the possibility to put that column upside down in cases where you need a really low POV. Now you have to spread the legs as far as possible to create that POV. But in all I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks Kees. On that recommendation I have ordered it as I need a tripod for Monday for the big moon :)
