So my tripod and monopod are currently both headless :D

I'm a sucker for compact and light stuff.

Hence I want to purchase a gitzo 2561T to replace my 680b. That probably won't happen, if only the 2561T was a bit longer.

Anyways, I'm debating between amvona's ath-a01 (external link) wish I bought this when they had the ebay deals or manfrottos 488rc2 (external link).

Amvona is $30 cheaper. Amvona's can hold the same weight as manfrottos and it is .5 lb less.

I don't really use my tripod much, but I want to purchase a head and use it for both my mono and tripod.

So decisions decisions. Oh yeah RRS's looks pretty nice, well the tilt head anyways, anyone ever used a tilt head on a tripod? I mean I probably won't purchase RRS, they are currently just too expensive for my taste.

I have an Amvona ATH-A03 ballhead (but I use a Manfrotto 322RC2 now).

The Amvonas are well made and can hold the weight they are rated, but the Manfrotto will most likely be easier to use (I was always grabbing the wrong knob on the Amvona while I was looking through the viewfinder).
