Best cheaper alternative to Gitzo Traveller tripod

I am looking for cheaper alternative of Gitzo Traveller tripod.

If money were no subject I would buy GK2580TQR. The most important parameter for me is compactness, particularly folded length around 17", 7kg load capacity and low weight.

However, I am not prepared to spent $640+ for a tripod. My budget is max $350 (excl. ball-head).

Also do you know if the GK2580TQR can be purchased without the ball-head? I've spent hours on Gitzo pages and found no other tripod that can be folded down to 16.9".
