Personally I just bought the Slik Sprint Pro GM, for around 90. I've heard you can get it at 80 even, shrugs. It's definitely worth the slight additional $ - feels solid and is highly versatile. Model number is SBH-100.
You might need to get a quick-release head for it though - default model comes with just the screw on top of a ball head. That's what I'm using for the time being.
