It is not always just the price to watch for. Yes, it might be the case with aluminium, but if you are shopping for carbon fiber, then watch out:

This looks nothing like carbon fiber, just a decal on aluminium (maybe C stands for counterfeit or "c how I lie" or some other c... on this one):

This one looks like unidirectional CF mat:

As far as flagship goes, to me it is the Q818C - around 70" of height. If the tripod costs over 100€, the'd better make it at least conveniently tall. The price is over 170$. All the offers listing it for less are bogus, like the 1st example above.

This one does look nice as a low carb (and $$) alternative (I just like the "diamond" pattern):
