Bogen 3063 Unfit for XL2?

That is the tripod I own and im wondering if the XL2 will be terrible with it. Its a Bogen 3011, with a 3063 head. I dont have much experience with tripods but from what I see in using it a while its great, but for the XL2 im not sure. What do you guys think?

It should be fine, based on what I saw after a few googles. Both the head and the sticks you're talking about are rated to support 11 lbs, and the XL2 is around 7 or 8 pounds I think.

The only real way to tell is to put an XL2 on it and see how steady it is, but I think these sticks will probably work out OK for you.
