I just received a brand new Manfrotto 440 Carbon One Pro Compact Tripod (Bogen 3444).
One word: WOW!
Apart from the beautiful finish it has the following advantages over my 055CB (Bogen 3021BN):

440/3444 tripod vs 055CB/3021BN tripod
Weight: 1.63Kg/3.6lb vs 2.40Kg/6lb
Height:
Closed down 52cm/20.5in vs 65cm/25.6in
Fully extended 128cm/50.3in vs 135cm/54.75in
Fully extended w/column 164cm/64.5in vs 176cm/71in
Load capacity 5Kg/11lb vs 6Kg/13lb
Leg sections 4 vs 3



Unfortunately the price is a bit steep:
B&H current prices: US$428 vs US$124

Have a great time
