I'm about to get a tripod

I'm about to get a tripod / video head combo for my Canon 7D with the hope that I can use a light slider like the Atlas FLT with it (rental soon, own when I'm less poor!) My question is this - does anyone have a feel for whether the manfrotto 547B is sold enough to support this slider, or any I going to small/flimsy/cheap? If I aim going too small, can anyone advise on a better tripod in a reasonable price range that will function as a more stable support for the Atlas FLT? Thanks.

Not strong enough to hold

Not strong enough to hold the Atlas FLT. I would go for the Manfrotto 504 kit or some type of equivalent. Otherwise you'll notice the slider move too much because the tripod head can't support the weight.
