The new tripod is the Manfrotto 190XPPROB, the head is the Manfrotto 496RC2 ball head. So far, I'm impressed. It's amazing the difference between my old panning tripod and a ball head, it really lets me get the tripod just as I want it. I've used in several times, and not had any problems. Also, I'm really liking the legs, I'm able to maneuver them as I need, and it's nice to know that when I get the Canon 100mm Macro lens of my dreams, I'll be able to use this tripod to easily position it to take a picture of something on the ground.
Here's a few pictures I was able to capture using this tripod:
