Wondering which Tripod to buy.

I'm from Sri Lanka where I don't get to buy every thing locally. When I buy from USA it will take two months to receive.

Since one of my cheap Tripod lock broke I need to buy a tripod. My max budget around 175usd. I'm looking for light weight tripod <= 3.5lbs. because I need to take it on travel as well as local bicycling.

I'm short and my height is 160cm. 5ft 3in. My equipment is Fuji x-t20 with either xf 14mm or xf 23mm f/1.4.

I found this nice tripod in b&h

It's costing me 162 USD with tax and shipping. There is also two months waiting time.

On the other hand I also found some tripods Locally which are overpriced than US (which is normal). I'm wondering weather buy the above (waiting 2 month) or one of the following below immediately. All of these come with with ball head

WEIFENG FT- 6662A LIGHT WEIGHT TRIPOD 69usd

TRIOPO CARBON FIBER TRIPOD (3G-228X8 B-2) 136usd

WEIFENG WF531B PROFESSIONAL TRIPOD 91usd

VANGUARD VEO 2 235AB 130usd

VANGUARD VEO 2 235CB 185usd

SIRUI T-005SR TRAVEL TRIPOD WITH B-00 BALL HEAD 113usd

SIRUI T-25SK 185usd

SIRUI T-024SK 197 usd

I'm wondering whether to pick on of these or the one I liked from shipping and wait two months
