A quick update
In reply to Wyville, Feb 16, 2013

Just wanted to thank everyone for their input. Yesterday I ordered a Jobu Design monopod which I got at about half price. I have found only positive reviews of it, so I think I got a really good deal. (At that price there was nothing like it anyway.)

The only thing left is the tilt head. I'm still trying to find out if the Custom Brackets Tilt Head AS is available over here, otherwise I might take a gamble with an Asian brand called Sunwayfoto. Their head (DT-01 + DDC50 clamp) is not exactly cheap (~€170), still a bit under the price of the Kirk head (~€230) and a similar all metal design. It seems like it's meant to be a serious alternative to the RRS/Kirk/Custom Brackets heads (unlike the Sirui RRS imitation). But I'll have to see first if I can't get the Custom Brackets tilt head. That one seems like a very nice design.
