Gitzo. Had Manfrotto 055 aluminum and the fliplocks took a big chunk of flesh out of my hand one time. Emailed them to complain and ask if they have replacements designs I could swap in and heard crickets. That was enough for me to refuse to use Manfrotto for life :-P

Happy w/ my 3 series Gitzo so far...very sturdy. The 2 series will wiggle if you extend the legs all the way because the bottom section is too thin. Extend it to your shooting height and grab the top of it and wiggle. If it wiggles, I wouldn't use it... :-)
