I'm 6'3" I use a Manfrotto 681 with the 234 tilt head. With that and a quick release base at full extension the viewfinder is too high for me. It is very sturdy but chunky and heavy. But if you want really high the Giottos 3290 is the one for you.

Check out the Velbon Sherpa range - the CF-8 extends to 1.89 m.
