What gimbal type head is everyone using? I've seen prices ranging from $85 (Yikes!) to $600. I use RRS plates and a Benro monopod for soccer games.
Wimberley seems to be the gold standard, but seeing that you already have a Benro monopod, I thought I would recommend the Benro's GH2 (I have one). For my amateur use, it has been excellent. I haven't used it as much as I would have liked to, but that is due to other circumstances.
If you want a model that can be taken apart like the RRS, take a look at the GH3. The GH3 can also be used for multi-row panoramas.
