My old Slik bit the dust today, which leaves me with the need to purchase a LIGHT tripod for those days when carrying my 6.5lb Bogen is not possible or desirable.

I'd prefer to keep the cost under or around $100 or so, and it has to support an N80 with the 80-200mm f/2.8 zoom. I've heard good things about the Velbon Maxi, but I'm not certain that such a tiny pod can hold my (not that heavy) setup. Any other suggestions?
