best monopod for heavy lenses

Heading to the rainforest for a week and decided to rent a Nikon 600/f4 to use instead of my 200-500/f5.6. I'm hoping to use it mostly handheld (I've tried it out before and had good luck) but want to bring a monopod just in case. I'm finding the reviews on vendor sites to be all but useless here since few people use the monopods with really heavy lenses and I thought a thread on this would be useful for many people.

So, any recommendations for monopods and/or heads specifically for traveling with heavy lenses? I can afford an expensive monopod if it's the right way to go, but am always happy to save money.
