if budget permits, CF tripods are good specially for travels.

get the weight of your gears  then check the capacity of the tripod you are eyeing. choose from there.

It really depends on:

- your total gear weight (D300, with or without grip, what lens, flash included or not)
- whether you will carry it around regularly and what's your carrying capacity
- your budget

manfrotto 190xprob po base on personal experience, very sturdy.. yun nga lang may kabigatan, if budget is not an issue will go for the CF version or a Gitzo.

I use the Gitzo 1541T with a Markins Q3T ballhead.
Used it when I went to Europe last month. Its lightweight and stable.
It can hold the D300 plus grip with 24-70 mm with no problem.
