Good tripod head needed !

I have just taken the plunge and ordered a Nikon 300mm lens weighing 2.8 kg,
3.6kg with the D200 attached.
I only just bought a Manfrotto 055PRO and a 222 ball head to go with my other lens. It's a brilliant combination and I am disappointed that the maximum weight it is recommended it takes is 2.5kg.
I need another tripod head. Having spent a small fortune the budget is limited but I would like something as flexible as the 222, and something I can use to carry the camera/ lens combination around whilst in situ on the tripod... i.e. over my shoulder.
Suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks in anticipation

PS Having read and accidentally posted under the "indian gimball debate" any other suggestions that are economically sound would be much appreciated !!
