I happen to have an old version of Manfrotto 190 tripod, bough used. Extremely stable, I can use 250mm focal length (400mm equivalent), manually focus and take pictures at that focal length with absolutely no image stabilization needed, when the center column is not extended (haven't tried with the center column extended), but legs are fully extended.
The old version of the tripod I have is otherwise very good, but the wingnut locks on the legs are less than optimal: it's easy to have the bolt head not fully seated in the lock when tightening, and the wingnuts need to be quite tight to avoid slipping legs. I had to grease the bolt threads to avoid annoying sounds when tightening the locks (the previous owner probably put no grease in there for 10 years). It takes a bit time to fully set up the tripod to fully extended leg configuration. Newer tripods apparently have switched to a better lock system on the legs, and I assume the old versions are no longer sold.
Do remember you need a good head for the tripod+head combination to be good. I have a Manfrotto 496RC2, bough new on sale, which I can recommend. I haven't found a single problem with the 496RC2 head other than not having a bubble level, if you can call that kind of missing feature a problem.
