i wanted the smallest and the lightest set up possible so i got a benro travel angel cf tripod which weighs like 1.5 lbs and it's perfect for me

+1... Travel angel for me as well. Just returned from 3 days camp/hike with my son's scout troop and couldn't be happier. Of course it's not as stable as the 10lb beast (left at home), but solid enough for me to capture long exposures at the beach.

I contemplated about those models but eventually purchased the BENRO TRCB068 just because it was the best offering for the price ($229 on amazon a month ago). The others were double the price. First thing i noticed was the ball head while adequate, it takes a little bit of adjustment to lock down when composing the frame.... ie, horizon line. Otherwise, I captured 30 sec shot on the beach without problem. Here are a couple of samples.

Is it not feasible to fit a better head and it still be transportable and foldable?

Oh absolutely. It came as a package. It was my first outing and for the few times I'll probably hike with it, it did the job. During the trip I had intentions to shoot some star trails but got too tired. 30 min to hour exposure on an island would have been the ultimate test.
