Light and cheap. I have a manfrotto ball head for my monopod already and can swap that over if needed (Its not quick release or anything though.)

So many cheapo models on BH and no reviews.....

You really need to provide a budget. Bogen/Manfrotto are good choices but if you really want to save some money Calumet (www.calumetphoto.com) sells some that seem to be Bogen/Manfrotto copies that are very good for the budget minded. Check out the 7500 for around $100, you can also find cheaper ones with a quick-release tilt shift head included.

Sub $100? I dont want a steaming pile of a tripod that I'll want to replace immediately, but I dont use something like that heavily so no need to buy a "pro" model or anything.

I think the amvona 994 is the cheap tripod to get. (search ebay) A lot of people are happy with that on potn. That's what i was originally gonna get before i got the 055xprob.
