Wanting to buy a new tripod. But wondering what brands are good quality and something that can hold 25kg+. I use a Canon C100 mkii with a Zacuto Indie Recoil shoulder rig.
Budget: Probably about $3000 max (not including tripod head)
That's quite the budget. With that amount of money you have a bunch of available options.
Honestly I would get a tripod and a monopod for that amount of money.
I would be looking at this:

She is looking for a tripod/head combo that can hold up to a 55 lb camera package, which seems really high given today's digital cine cameras. ( $3000 US barely covers the cost of tripods in this weight class )

Yes you're right. I just did a lot of research and for something I'm looking for I would really need something $10k and up unfortunately...

Why do you need up to 55 lbs load capacity ? That seems really high unless you are mounting a fully kitted out ALEXA with a large cine zoom lens.

We use a Kessler Crane Hercules head (2.0) on some Libec legs, head is rated at 150lbs, legs at 75 or something. Got the whole setup on craigslist for $600, around $1500 new. You might want to look at the whole Kessler setup, heavy but strong.
Not a fluid head for sure, but works well with our FS5 on a Indie Recoil.
