first of all goto a good camera store and look to see what they have (I'm assuming your talking about mounting a scope on it). Then go on Ebay in the camera section and see what's there. I use a Monfretto with a claw mount head (ball type). I bought the ball head off Ebay for about forty dollars, and I now couldn't live with out it. Carbon fiber is nice, but really no better than metal legs. It's there to save weight. I have about $175 in my tripod, head, and claw adapters altogether when I bought it all off Ebay.
