I also just went for a Feisol tripod with a Kirk BH-3 head - largely based on the review Stealthfixr posted.
I ended up going with the CT-3301N. This is the three section legset, which I prefer over the four section set due to lighter weight, greater stability, and less clamps to adjust (the length/height difference was not as important to me). I bought directly from the Feisol.com website and paid via Paypal, $170 + shipping for the legset.
The most interesting thing to me is what they've done with the center column on the new (N series) tripods. They upgraded to a carbon fiber center column, and improved the locking mechanism. They also designed a plate that allows you to entirely remove the center column and just have a solid flat platform to mount the head on. This is similar to the head style of the 1300/1500 series Gitzo tripods. I've also noticed that this is a popular modification being made to the 1227/1228 Gitzo's. Both Kirk and Markins are selling aftermarket plates that allow you to ditch the center column in favor of a platform mount.
I've always been a proponent of never extending my center column upwards, since you lose so much stability (converts your tripod into a monopod). Feisol's option to leave out the center column was a big selling point for me, especially since you can buy just the legset and platform w/o the center column at a savings of $40 ($170 vs $210). The weight reduction is significant as well. The weight of the legset w/o the center column is only 2.65lb. This is significantly less than the 3.4 lbs of the Gitzo 1227. The total weight of the Kirk/Feisol combo will be only 3.85 lbs, a significant improvement over my current aluminum tripod.
I'm curious to use the combo when it arrives, but I have no doubts that it will be a significant improvement over my Bogen 3001/486RC2 combo.
Hope this helps!
