Looking for a good gimbal head that will last and can hold a 500mm

Don't own one, but Wimberley is the name that keeps coming up whenever I hear people talking about gimbal heads.

Heard great things about the Wimberley II, but I think I'll go with the RRS full gimbal.  I like the fact that it can also be used as a nodal point pano head, and RRS stuff is top notch.

I had a Wimberly for my 600mm f/4 and it was wonderful.  However, it would be overkill for the much lighter 500mm lens.  I'd go with Neuro's recommendation, or use it handheld or with a monopod.
