Video Fluid head or Gimbal mount?

anyone with a long lens using a video fluid head instead of a gimbal mount for bird shots (especially to track flying birds)? seems that a Gitzo G238 is cheaper than the Wimberley, Kirk King Cobra or Black Widow gimbal units.
I'm thinking of mounting an arca clamp on one and using it with a Sigma 50-500.
I've got a ball head right now and it's just not cutting it for me.
