Monopod suggestion please

Hi all,

Can anyone suggest me to find a monopod - I'm not so good in researching tripods and monopods, and your help will be greatly appreciated. I currently have a Manfrotto 190 XPROB tripod and 488RC2 ball head, and looking for lighter alternative for travel and give some support on handheld macro shots. If I can use my 488RC2 on that monopod, certainly would be great too! I hope I don't need a completely different head for monopod.

Also - there are some monopods out there that can extend 3 small... "pods" (self-standing monopod?), how good are they? I'm sure they are not as stable as tripod, but how useable are they?
