Hmmm.. I have both a Giottos monopod (MM9160) and Giottos ballhead (MH-1000). I guess it's ok for the price. They seem to take the weight quite well although I doubt they will really support the quoted max-load (esp the ballhead). Have had my ballhead for almost 2 years and it still works fine.

I just bought a MM8960 from CP today and mated it with a Manfrotto 486RC2 ball head.. More or less 1kg in total as compared to 2.5kg on my SLiK 400 DX.

It's not really a plate, it's the round type that simply screws into the bottom of your cam/tripod collar. Much more convenient than the normal type where u need a coin or screwdriver to tighten. The model is MH 1000-200. You can see what it looks like on the Giottos webpage.
