Monopod/walking stick w/ ball-head what to get?

I right now have a Targus monopod with the walking stick point I got for $10, but I am finding for my uses I need more flexability. So, I been doing a search for a monopod with a ball head, but I am not sure what to get as I am getting lot of mix info. I'd rather not go over $30, but all I want is a monopod with a ball-head that I could use during hikes(the rubber foot needs to spin to reveal the metal point, does that make sense?) that isn't overly heavy. A bonus would be if the monopod had detachable/hidden legs that revealed itself to become a tri-pod, but not that key of a feature.

I noticed on Amazon that Canon may have a model that might fit my needs, but I am not sure of the durability/quality(I have had good luck with canon products in the past; so, this shouldn't be that much of a difference?) or weight of it. There were a few other ones I saw on Amazon, but not sure on their quality, specially when outdoors. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
