Good tripod choice for Advanta-Jib Lite from Dykortech?

I'm going to be purchasing an Advanta-jib Lite and was wondering if anyone has any comments in regards to choosing a solid tripod for it. Dykortech recommends the Manfrotto 528X (load capacity = 66 lbs.) but I'd like to get some feedback before I shell out the money for it.

Are there any shortcomings worth noting for this tripod, or are there any other tripods in the ballpark of this price range ($620) that blow this model out of the water?

Another question... If I went with the 528X, would the Manfrotto 3067 dolly ( be able to handle the weight of the tripod and jib without any problems? I looked on B&H and the manufacturers website but didn't see anything regarding weight/load capacity. The Dykortech website recommends a Manfrotto "314" dolly but I did a search for that and couldn't find anything at all to do with a dolly.

I just ordered the Advanta-Jib lite too and I will be using legs I'm ordering from Indie-dolly for $599.00

This tripod will work great for both the jib and the dolly (and the weight capacity is 190lbs.)

The only extra part I'll need is the 3/8" mounting plate which costs around $40.00.

Let me know how you like the Advanta-Jib (mine should be here by Thursday).
