Sirui T025X carbon fiber, forged aluminum, comes with decent Arca-Swiss compatible ballhead that has a reasonably small Arca-Swiss compatible plate

Under 2 pounds, can support up to 13.2 pounds, removable center if you need extra stability, about a foot long folded up including the ballhead.

It took a while to read that review, very extensive! Anyway, now it's even harder to decide. This tripod seems really portable (0.8KG is not bad) but has no monopod option.

The more I read on the topic, the harder the decision becomes
