Smile Swaroatx 95/Sony a6300/digidapter. Need new tripod/videohead..

I am very pleased with my digiscoping setup swaroatx85-95/Sony a6300/digidapter but my tripod and videohead don't match. I own an old Manfrotto 055CB with Manfrotto 128RC videohead. This combination simply does not work that well. I think that i will buy the Really right stuff tvc 33 versa tripod...its expensive but i think its worth it..Tara uses it also,i read somewhere.
Which videohead is gonna match with this? Maybe the Manfrotto 502HD Pro videohead? It would be nice if you can come with som suggestions or what yo are using. Ron.

I've used the Manfrotto 501 for many years. It works great for digiscoping, especially with the long plate. Also a great all-around tripod head for general birding.

The best current head is the Manfrotto MVH500AH. I would never put a scope on a ball head, and Len's 501 has long been discontinued.
