Hi all I have an older Manfrotto ART 055 aluminum tripod does anyone know what the weight capacity is ?? ive searched the manfrotto site but cant seem to find this exact model . This tripod seems quite sturdy - would I gain anything by going to a Carbon Fibre tripod other than the lighter weight ?? Id really like to hear opinions on this tripod Perhaps someone has a link for info as well ?? all i can find online is info on the newer 055 models.

any help is appreciated i was debating about rerofitting this tripod to remove the center column and replace with a markins q20 ball head
