I have a TVC-24L / BH-40LR and am 5'10". The BH-40 was recently updated a few months ago (1 notch instead of 2 and smaller T lever) and I doubt you would have any problem with drift. Having had both, I much prefer the lever to the screw clamp. Your eye height is 64-4=60". The TVC-24 is 49.2" + 7"(ball and camera) = 56.2". So on a flat surface you would have to bend down 4". You can try it at home by setting up your current tripod with the camera eyepiece 56.2" above the floor. I tend to bend over 2-3" when shooting so it's doable but not ideal. Oh and don't bother to ask RRS to cut down a TVC-24L a few inches, they won't. That all said, I find the TVC-24L, BH-40LR in the TQB-72 bag remarkably compact.
