    I think Slik will be a gd choice.. Manfrotto abit too ex nowadays.. If u want to get manfrotto stuffs can look for eugenep.. His prices are good..

    You can try the PPCP Pro tripod. It's a bit above your budget ($140), but it's apparently very good and comes with a decent ballhead with quick release. Plus, now you can buy it from MS Color.

    PPCP tripod. Good for travelling. It's my lightweight tripod if I'm not doing model shoots.

    go TCW or any 2nd hand camera shop and look for 2nd hand tripods..
    good ones and cheap too if you're the practical type and dont really bother about how nicely a tripod is painted and such..
    sigh.

    Slik tripod.

    If you only want to use the tripod for self portrait (or group photo, when you want inside the photo), slik sprint mini may your good choice. IIRC, it is weight less than 1kg, height max is only around 1.25m, collapse only around 40cm. Cost you around $70.

    Regards,
    Arto.

    I'm also looking for tripod under $100.

    Not too heavy too.

    TS did not tell us his setup so its hard to give him sound advise. I had learnt my lesson. should get a good tripod from the start and not and cheapo and regret later.
