I'm just getting into this quality tripod idea, and have decided on the Bogen 3001BD and a 3413QR head. Now I just need to place the darn order...

Anyway, I am wondering how easy it is to take the head on and off of the tripod? I wonder because I was thinking about getting a monopod as well for the occasional usage in tight spaces, and was thinking about just switching the head over to the monopod when I need to use it.

Is that an insane idea? I could just spend the $26 on a 3229QR head for the monopod, but then I can only swivel one way. I would like to use the 3413 on the monopod as well, but don't really want to spend $50 on another head I already have...
