Hey guys, I am looking for a budget tripod (and maybe with gimbal head) for my Canon camera & Sigma 150-600mmC lens. Any recommend?

Need you guys expertise, knowledge & experience… TIA

What exactly is your budget? Different people have different budgets.

Maybe $300-500, or maybe lower than that.. BTW, I'm using 7D2
this budget can get quite a decent set of tripod legs and perhaps the head as well.

I suggest that you look for some used ones as tripod usually stands the test of time (got it? hehe), not to mention that many people find out that their purchases don't get utilised a lot. With your budget you have plenty of options.
Specifically, I got a used Manfrotto 190 series which can be had at around $150 used together with a ball head. It can take 5kg of load. It is not exactly light weight if that is a concern.
Good thing is with a used one you don't have to lose much if you find it not suitable and decide to sell away afterwards.
